The Good Shepherd

“he refreshes my soul. He guides me along the right paths for his name sake.” Psalm 23:3

Oh how wonderful is my good shepherd. I can be just as simple as a sheep and not worry about things because the King of all kings and the Lord of all lords loves me. Just the way I am right now. He leads me in the right way that is best for me because he cares so much about my life. He does know more than I do and he will never steer me in the wrong direction. He knows that the world needs him and he is willing to use a simple sheep to show this world his love. As he guides me I will be more and more like him and my light will shine bright in a dark world to change others. This will bring God glory and that is why I’m alive. “News Flash”, I’m not here to please only myself. I am here on a mission for God. My only responsibility is to work with him. To pray, talk to God, and always to get to know him better and better. Read his words so I know the truth and strengthen my mind. To worship him and praise him for all he has done for me and given to me. To attend church regularly and fellowship with other Christians, so we can lift each other up and encourage them to obey his commands. The hard part is up to him. But he has given me everything I will need to do it all. His spirit lives inside of me and gives me the wisdom and strength to do it and he never gives up on me or gets tired of my mistakes. Each morning he has endless grace and mercy for the new day ahead. Children can be quite challenging and frustrating at times but I am his child and he will never stop loving me. He will keep loving me all the way home to living with him forever. That’s how much he cares.
