Psalm 23 (Real Life Version)
1 I don’t need a shepherd. I can do this myself;
But I want a better job, a new car, my school loans paid, my kids to get ready for school on time, a new husband, a husband period, for the kids to stop hitting each other in the backseat every time we try to go somewhere, for my back to stop hurting when I wake up in the morning, for someone to fix the leaky faucet, for the doctor to find a cure for my disease, for my nosy in-laws to die, to stop feeling inadequate, to stop being depressed all the time, to stop feeling like everyone else is better than me. etc.
2 I lie down in bed because He knows if I go to work today, I will cuss out Becky in the cubicle by the elevator.
I let others who say they accept and love me lead me, but for some reason I’ve been finding myself drowning in my own personal tsunami of stress.
3 I’m pretty sure my soul died when I turned into an adult.
I’ve led myself into the paths of right away
For what I believe is my own sanity's sake.
4 Yea, somehow I went from the shadow of the valley of death straight to Satan’s armpit.
I don’t fear evil, because I’ve learned to avoid it by secluding myself.
For Netflix is with me.
The Office and Parks and Rec…they comfort me.
5 I have prepared a table of pop tarts and Easy Mac in the presence of myself because I lost my job last week;
My head started breaking out in acne from all my stress, which I was almost guaranteed would stop happening once I stopped being a teenager;
The leaky faucet is still running and causing my kitchen sink to runneth over.
6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow those that I stalk on Instagram
All the days of their lives;
And I don’t plan on going to church until God fixes all of these problems….Forever.
