Lament 23: A Psalm 23 Re-write because nothing makes sense

Lament 23 – Jasmine Katrice Version (JKV)

The Lord is my shepherd – but sometimes my needs aren’t met

He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters – but somehow, I don’t feel peace

He restoreth my soul: Only to lead me into darker paths for his name’s sake – a lot of people do a lot of things in your name and a lot of those things have harmed us and caused irreparable damage.

Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear all the evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me – but will they protect me?

Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies – I’m afraid to sit down. Thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over with fear.

Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life but it will never catch up to me and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever at the hands of the evil walking, living and breathing in a world you created.

Dear God, what are you gonna do about this?
