The 23rd Psalm for Busy People
The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not rush.
He makes me stop and rest for quiet intervals.
He provides me with images of stillness, which restores my serenity.
He leads me in ways of efficiency
through calmness of mind, and His guidance is peace.
Even though I have a great many things to accomplish each day,
I will not fret, for His presence is here.
His timelessness and His all importance will keep me in balance.
He prepares refreshment and renewal in the midst of my activities
by anointing my mind with the oils of tranquility;
my cup of joyous energy overflows.
Surely harmony and effectiveness shall be the fruits of my hours,
for I shall walk in the pace of my Lord,
and I will dwell in His house forever.
