Psalm 23

Rob Barber who goes to our church put up a pretty nice photo on his flickr account. You can check out the full size picture there as well as leave a comment. There have been a lot of comments so far...

Psalm 23
[Re-worded by Rob Barber]

God, you are my shepherd.
I don’t need to worry about anything.
It’s you that satisfies the deepest longings of my heart,
And gives me times of wonderful refreshment.
You show me how best to live my life.

Even when I am in serious danger
I am not overcome with fear.
For I am reminded that you are always with me,
The signs of your presence reassure me.

And when the pressures of the day have worn me down,
Leaving me feeling tired and discouraged,
Your word and the kindness of your people revive me.
Once again I have energy and enthusiasm for a new day.

I am struck by the beautiful and awesome things you do,
And I hold with amazement the assurance of your love for me.
You have placed in me an unshakable confidence,
I know that I will be with you forever.

Hi Steve, great you left a comment on the new site. No an Australian photo. From what I understand it is from New Zealand. I will try to get there some day...
