I had received this and I felt it's worthwhile sharing it w you, people.


This is an eye opener; some probably never thought nor looked at Psalm 23 in this way, even though they say it over and over again.

The Lord is my Shepherd...
That's Relationship!

I shall not want...
That's Supply!

He maketh me to lie down in green pastures...
That's Rest!

He leadeth me beside the still waters...
That's Refreshment!

He restoreth my soul...
That's Healing!

He leadeth me in the paths of righteousness...
That's Guidance!

For His name sake...
That's Purpose!

Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death...
That's Testing!

I will fear no evil...
That's Protection!

For Thou art with me...
That's Faithfulness!

Thy rod and Thy staff they comfort me...
That's Discipline!

Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies...
That's Hope!

Thou annointest my head with oil...
That's Consecration!

My cup runneth over...
That's Abundance!

Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life...
That's Blessing!

And I will dwell in the house of the Lord...
That's Security!

That's Eternity!

Pretty cool, I'd say.

If you don't mind my asking, do you know who wrote that piece?

I get concerned when people pass written work around the Internet. More than once I've received "forwards" that *I* actually wrote some time ago. The person sending it to me doesn't know that I wrote the piece because, somewhere along the line, my name was removed it was attributed to an 'anonymous source.'

I'm not looking for credit -- I'm looking for accountability. People change my words and by the time it gets passed on the story does not say what I meant it to say. Usually the true message gets whitewashed or diluted to simply reflect "spiritual" values instead of Christian values. When people leave the author's name attached to a piece, others are less likely to change the words.

No, I don't Louise. I wish I knew. More than once I asked the person at the bottom of the forwarding chain if s/he knows who wrote it, or if s/he wrote it, but w/o any response, or even an acknowledgment.

I posted a q two days ago to this effect on the forum "Experts and Interviewees Wanted", asking about the c-rights of such works. The post is named "Internet Source Copurights". I'm concerned about it, too. Of course it's c-righted, but I thought that somehow it's available, b/c of lack of acknowledgment, like an uncollected lottery ticket.

I understand that this is not yours, right?
