The Lord Is My Peace

A friend put this paraphrased version of Psalm 23 on Facebook today and it was so wonderful I thought I would share it with everyone.  Author Judy Booth paraphrased this version for times of anxiety in our lives.

The Lord is my peace,  I shall not live in anxiety.
He puts me under His wings of comfort and calms
My spirit within me,
He takes all my anxieties on Himself
 and helps me focus on Him.
Yes, though I walk through a time of grave uncertainties and fierce anxieties
I will not fret ~ for you are my God.
Your Word and Your presence calm me now.
You hold my uncertainties in the palm of Your hand
You soothe my anxious mind
You smooth my wrinkled brow
Surely serenity and trust in You
shall fill all the days of my life,
and I shall keep my mind stayed on YOU forever.
Psalm 23
