PSALM 23 REWRITTEN
Worry is my shepherd, I can’t turn it off.
Worry never lets me lie down and rest,
It leads me beside waterfalls of “what ifs.”
Worry torments my soul.
Worry guides me down safe paths only,
I’m afraid to step out, embrace change, really live!
Worry makes even minor trials seem like
the valley of the shadow of death.
I let fear drive my decisions,
and I forget that you are with me.
You invade my thoughts,
and take away my peace of mind.
You play out the worst case scenario
in every situation, driving my loved ones crazy.
You give me a migraine,
medication seems my only defense.
Surely worry and anxiety will follow me
all the days of my life,
and I will have to live with these uncontrollable thoughts forever.
