23rd Psalm for Busy People


The Lord is my pacesetter I shall not rush,
He makes me stop and rest for quiet intervals
He provides me with images of stillness,
     Which restores my serenity.
He leads me in the way of efficiency through
     calmness of mind,
And His guidance is peace.

Even though I have a great many things to accomplish
     each day
     And crisis may pile upon crisis
I will not fall apart for His presence is here,
     His timelessness, His all importance will keep me
     in balance.

He prepares refreshment and renewal in the midst
     of my activity.
He anoints my mind with His oils of inspiration.
     My cup overflows.
Surely harmony and effectiveness shall be the fruit of
     my hours,
For I shall walk in the peace of the Lord
     And dwell in His house forever.
