I have sometimes used this version of Psalm 23 which is re-written to relate specifically to the workplace. Whenever I use it several people always ask for it, so I thought I would post it here. To be honest I only found it by chance and although I have tried, I cannot see who has written it. If anyone knows, please feel free to add a credit.
The Lord is my 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 and complaining.
He reminds me that he is my source and not my job.
He restores my sanity every day and guides my decisions, that I might honour him in all that I do.
Even though I face absurd amounts of emails, system crashes, unrealistic deadlines, budget cutbacks, gossiping coworkers, discriminating supervisors, and an achy 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 cheque.
His retirement plan beats every pension there is!
And, when it’s all said an done, I’ll be working for Him a whole lot longer…..
and for that, I bless his name!
