Psalm 23 – Without The Good Shepherd
1 I am on my own. I have unending needs, wants and frustration.
2 I am restless on a merry-go round and like a tossed wave of the sea.
3 My soul is overwhelmed with brokenness and disappointment from my selfishness.
4 I stumble and fall in the clouds of darkness over my life. I am haunted by depression and death.
5 I go without friends, family, food and experience a complete emptiness of life.
6 What is the point? Is there hope? Where do I turn?
1 The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want.
2 He makes me lie down in green pastures. He leads me beside still waters.
3 He restores my soul. He leads me in paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.
4 Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me.
5 You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; you anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows.
6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life, and I shall dwell in the house of the LORD forever.
