We looked at Psalm 23 last week, but I wanted to look at it again today, the beginning of the week, in another version. I received the following several years ago - from I know not where. But I hope you get something from it on this Monday.
Psalm 23 For the Workplace
The Lord is my real boss, and I shall not want.
He gives me peace, when chaos is all around me.
He gently reminds me to pray and
do all things without murmuring
He reminds me that He is my source and not my job.
He restores my sanity everyday
and guides my decisions
that I might honor Him in all that I do.
Even though I face absurd amounts of e-mails,
system crashes, unrealistic deadlines, budget cutbacks, layoffs,
gossiping co-workers, discriminating supervisors
and an aging body that doesn't cooperate every morning,
I still will not stop--- for He is with me!
His presence, His peace, and His power will see me through.
He raises me up, even when they fail to promote me.
He claims me as His own; even when the company threatens to let me go.
His faithfulness and love are better than any bonus check.
His retirement plan beats any 401k there is!
When it's all said and done,
I'll be working for Him a whole lot longer and for that,
I BLESS HIS NAME!
I started this website and blog on May 1, 2012. I am a Catholic who has been in ministry for many years. I first developed what I would call a close relationship with Jesus in the early 1970s. Ever since then I have been praying with people for healing and other needs. It is because I have seen so many of these prayers answered that I am so bold as to offer to pray for you individually through this website and phone line.
