I am NOT good at "resting". I really like productivity (like, REALLY), list-making and task completion. It is kind of like a disease. It has been a challenge for me to just "rest." Pitiful, I know.
Now, I know that translations vary, however, the English Standard Version of Psalm 23 says:
The Lord is my Shepherd; I shall not want [to make a list, finish a task, get something done for the sake of getting something done]. He MAKES me lie down in green pastures [since I don't lie down of my own accord, yet I need to rest]. He leads me besides still waters. [embellishments mine]
This is what God has taught me over the last couple of days.
