Another Look At Psalm 23

The Lord is my shepherd,
Because I need to be kept in line.
I shall not want,
Because I cannot provide for myself.

He makes me lie down in green pastures,
Because I need a safe place.
He leads me beside still waters,
As I require times of rest.

He restores my soul.
As It often requires restoration.
He leads me in paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.
As I too often dishonor Him and fail to point people to Him.

Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil,
For I know who I am and where my future lies.
for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me.
Even when I don’t always recognize it, I require discipline.

You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies;
Eventually I will be the one prospering.
you anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows.
I will take my rightful place and accept my inheritance.

Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life,
Which is great, but I don’t deserve it.
and I shall dwell in the house of the LORD forever.
Which we be joy beyond reckoning.
