Psalm 23 [for the work place]

I received this from my aunt the other day and while it made me smile and giggle because of it’s corniness, I must admit that I’ve read it every day since and it gives me that extra push at work when I’d rather just go home and play my guitar—

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 and complaining.

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, 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 is 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.
