Fall into Goodness

I was reading a Psalm the other day, Psalm 23 to be exact. As I meditated upon those words I experienced a moment of joy as I read that "goodness and mercy" were following me every day. I've been followed by a lot of things in my life and goodness and mercy were not in the mix.
Now I do have a great picture of this in my own life. I have a beautiful miniature dachshund named Midnight and when I come home from work, he is always thrilled to see me. He acknowledges me and I noticed the other day as I walked through the house that he followed me wherever I went. No matter what room I went into or how long I stayed there, he stayed with me and moved with me. As I laughed at his companionship I thought about God’s goodness and mercy. Goodness to help me make quality decisions and mercy to help me when I don’t make such good decisions.
It’s always nice to know that whenever we take a hit in life’s journey, whenever we are attacked with such a strong force that we fall backwards…that we will fall into the goodness and mercy of God that is following us all the days of our lives.
