lie down

the Lord is my shepherd
i shall not want  
he makes me lie down 
in green pastures 
~psalm 23:1-2

i
n the midst of the frenzy of activity
he makes me lie down
in the midst of my anxiety and insecurity 
he makes me lie down
in the midst of my earning and proving 
he makes me lie down
in the midst of me trying to do it by myself 
he makes me lie down
in the midst of the pressure and performing
he makes me lie down
in the midst of trying to figure it all out
he makes me lie down
in the midst of trying to please and impress everyone 
he makes me lie down

O Lord 
make me lie down 
body and soul 
this day
amen
