Paraphrase of Psalm 23

1 Christ is the leader of my ways,
I will be satisfied with Him alone.
2 He gives me a peaceful place to go;
and he shows me serenity.
3 He renews my spirit
and shows me how to walk in righteousness
so that I may bring glory to His name.
4 Though I may go through hard trials,
I will not be scared;
For He is always with me.
He comforts me in times of pain and uncertainty.
5 You provide for me where my enemies can see;
You bless me and
you provide bountifully for me.
6 Your kindness and mercy surround me
for my entire life.
I will be in Your present forevermore.
