Spiritual Sundays

A friend sent me a cute poem this week that originated from http://www.thejesuslist.com/ so if you're a working person or a busy person, I think you will enjoy it:

Psalm 23 For The Workplace
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 I do.
Even though I face absurd amounts of emails, system crashes, unreaslistic 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 they fail to promote me.
He claims me as His own even when the company threatens to let me go.
His faithfulness and love is better than any bonus check.
His retirement plan beats any 401k there is!
When its all said and done, I'll be working for Him a whole lot longer.
For that, I bless His Name!

Thank you, Ginger and Charlotte, for hosting Spiritual Sundays and I'm thankful to all who submit inspirational writings.


  1. Thank you for sharing this. ;)

    i received a similar e mail last year and thought it was such a shame not to pass it on to all my friends. What you did here, even better!

    It is a good reminder.

  5. This is such a powerful reminder of God's provision in these uncertain times! Thank you!

  6. This brought a smile to my face this morning. It really makes the Psalm practical for today's world. Thank you for sharing it with us today.

  7. This is good Mary. Thanks for sharing it. Thinking of you and praying for you.


  8. Creative minds never cease to amaze me!

  9. This is such a great poem. Everyday when I pray about my work day it just goes so smooth. Thank-you for sharing this today.
    God Bless,

  10. Reading your post this morning put me in a good mood. I'm off to church with a smile on my face. Thanks for posting.

  11. Love this. As it can be overwhelming at my workplace sometimes. And it's true, when we remember Him as being the Big Boss, by His grace, the workload is easier to tackle. God bless you sister and may you have a great week ahead! Love you in Christ.

  12. I would rather not work with you because if we are working buddies, the way it is at my workplace, we won't enjoy our plates of cookies and big, tall glass of iced tea. I'd rather do the latter with you, our fellowship after our prayer time :) Love you sister!

  13. I am going to show this to my husband. It is just excellent! Thanks Mary!

  14. Hi Mary,
    What a great poem! I hadn't seen this before. Thanks for sharing it and have a wonderful week.


  15. I'd seen this before ... and misplaced, so I'm SO grateful you posted it again, sweet Mary! Midst the chaos that often surrounds my desk, I feel certain I'll be referring back to it time and again!

    Have yourself a wonderful new week, OK?


  16. Beautiful post.
    Have a blessed week.
    Im sharing an old post.

  17. Great! I'm not working anymore, but I can apply that to my life as a homemaker just the same. Thanks for sharing!

    God bless,

  18. Linked from Spiritual Sundays. Great re-application of a powerful psalm!
