A Self-Reliant Psalm 23

The following is a short excerpt from a book by Max Lucado. I thought it was quite true when I read it!

A self-reliant Psalm 23 -

I am my own shepherd. I am always in need.
I stumble from mall to mall and shrink to shrink,
seeking relief but never finding it.
I creep through the valley of the shadow of death and
fall apart.
I fear everything from pesticides to power lines, and I’m
starting to act like my mother.
I go down to the weekly staff meeting and am
surrounded by enemies. I go home, and even my
goldfish scowls at me.
I anoint my headache with Extra-Strength Tylenol.
My Jack Daniels runneth over.
Surely misery and misfortune will follow me, and I will
live in self-doubt for the rest of my lonely life.
Why is it that the ones who most need a shepherd resist him so?
