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…

  • unemployment
  • an oil spill
  • cancer treatment
  • AA
  • the Nashville flood

I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me…

…Thou preparest…

  • 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…

  • beer
  • diet coke
  • debt
  • closet full of fashionable clothes
  • infinity pool

runneth over.

Surely…

  • 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.
