Psalm 23 Paraphrase

God is my Shepherd
And I am his little lamb 

He feeds me 
He guides me 
He looks after me. 
I have everything I need.

Inside, my heart is very quiet
As quiet as lying still in soft green grass
In a meadow
By a little stream. 

Even when I walk through 
the dark, scary, lonely places
I won't be afraid
Because my Shepherd knows where I am. 

He is here with me
He keeps me safe
He rescues me 

He makes me strong 
And brave.

He is getting wonderful things ready for me 
Especially for me
Everything I ever dreamed of! 

He fills my heart so full of happiness
I can't hold it all inside.

Wherever I go I know 
God's Never Stopping 
Never Giving Up 
Always and Forever
Will go, too!

--from The Jesus Storybook Bible (Every story whispers His name), by Sally Lloyd-Jones
