Meditation on Psalm 23 Verse 3

"He leads me in the paths of righteousness"

I don't have to worry
or stress
or work it out
or pace back and forth
till my brain explodes.
I don't have to figure out
complex riddles
or mind bending equations.
I don't have to have a degree
in advanced moral ethics.
I don't have to fear
that I'll make the wrong choice
or fall at that hurdle
or come up short.
I am not the one who has to understand
hold every possibility
weigh every fraction of opportunity.

He leads me.

He knows the way.

He knows the paths of righteousness
because He formed and laid them down.

What is my call?

To follow as He leads.
