Psalm 23

My take on one of those things people send to each other on the internet.  Whoever wrote it used one-word descriptions.  Naturally, I must add more:

The LORD is my shepherdI am my Beloved's and He is mine/relationship!

I shall not wantHe faithfully supplies for all my needs

He makes me lie down in green pasturesRest, Sabbath rest – in a life-giving place

He leads me beside still watersRefreshment, washing with the water of the Word

He restores my soulHe renews, reinvigorates and restores the anxieties and anxiousness my soul endures daily/healing

He leads me in paths of righteousnessThe LORD is my guide, directing my steps

for His Name's sakeHis Name, His fame, His acclaim are the purpose of my life

Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of deathCrap happens, testing comes, it rains on the just and the unjust

I will fear no evilI am surrounded b y the ultimate Protector

For You are with meI couldn't get away from Him if I wanted to, He is faithful, so faithful

Your rod and your staff, they comfort meThe discipline of the LORD tells me He has not given up on me, I am still in training, it isn't over. 

You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies – Even in my most unworthy condition, You strengthen me and feed me with the finest food 

You anoint my head with oilYou welcome me into your Presence so graciously, You consecrate and set me apart

My cup runs overMore than full, You have poured out every good blessing/abundance

Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my lifeI am blessed with a steadfast covenant of the love of the LORD, like a shadow, blessing is always right there behind me…

And I will dwell in the house of the LORDHis house is my house.  Oh LORD, You have been our dwelling place forever/security

ForeverEternity is written on my heart, happily ever after
