Songs for the Road – a look at some of the PsalmsOver the summer we will look at some of the Psalms – songs sung to God, at certain times in certain places, that allow us to live our whole life confidently in his presence.
Psalm 106A great video inspired by Psalm 106.
Psalm 22:10From the day I was born, I have been in your care, and from the time of my birth, you have been my God.
Psalm 94:18When I felt my feet slipping, you came with your love and kept me steady.
What Would YOUR Psalm 23 Say?
The Lord is…
- my mechanic
- my plastic surgeon
- my yoga instructor
- my president
- my lover
I shall not want?
He maketh me to lie down…
- in a house with three screaming kids
- on a stage in front of thousands
- on a dirt floor in Peru
- in front of a desk full of paperwork
- in a life that wasn’t planned
He leadeth me …
- to the sauna at the gym where I can sweat
- to the closet with door locked where I can think
- to the hiking path in the park where I can pray
- to the brand new deck where I can sit and drink sweet tea
- to the empty house where I can sit on the couch and play video games
He restoreth my soul: he…
- puts me in my place
- shows me how I look to everybody else
- tells me that I was the one who was right
- brings my blood pressure down
- finally sends me a check
Yea, though I walk through…
- an oil spill
- cancer treatment
- the Nashville flood
I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me…
- my awesomeness
- my 401K
- my foreclosure
- my arrogance
- my iPhone 4G
before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my…
- diet coke
- closet full of fashionable clothes
- infinity pool
- my cigarettes and coffee
- my friends and family
- my health and prosperity
- my church and pastor
- my pretty face and white smile
…shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the LORD forever.
