This video shares a most effective listening experience of the 23rd Psalm, the song written by a talented Korean named La, Un-Yung. Listening to the song – the words and the music – envelopes us in God’s caring, healing and love (whether we understand Korean language or not.)
Can you feel the still waters? the leading? the shadows? the preparations? the forever and ever? WOW!
Un-Yung wrote this song in one sitting and never edited it. That’s the only time he ever wrote a song without doing some editing – – and he wrote over 1,000 songs!
The story behind this song and the man who wrote it are well worth knowing. You can read more HERE
- Read some of La’s story (HERE). Reflect on those times in your own life where memorable events – and maybe even “mistakes” – resulted in some wonderful new outcomes.
- Many of us are ill-informed about the Korean conflict. The 2019 documentary – Korea: the Never-Ending War – is a good one to help our understanding. It is well worth the time.
Enjoy the day, filled with the Spirit!
The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters. He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever. ~ Psalm 23
