Yesterday my devotional was about the Psalms and the 900 years of Jewish history and theology they cover from Psalm 1 to Psalm 150. Today, I thought it might be fun to read the 23rd Psalm as it might relate to the workplace. I couldn’t find the author of this piece but I thought it speaks to all of us, so here it is:
“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 every day and guides my decisions that I might honor him in all that I do.
Even though I face an absurd amount of emails, 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 the company threatens to let me go.
His faithfulness and love are better than any bonus check.
His retirement plan beats every 401 K 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!”
Amen & Amen!
