He tends His flock like a shepherd: He gathers the lambs in His arms and carries them close to His heart; He gently leads those that have young. – Isaiah 40:11 NIV
The Lord is gentle with us, as a shepherd cares for his sheep. He comforts us when we are feeling down. He restores us when we are tired. He especially helps us when we have children to tend to who need constant supervision and love.
We can easily get ourselves into trouble, but He is there to catch us when we fall. The path of righteousness sometimes seems hard, but in the end it will all be worth it.
He created us, and He saved us. We can trust that wherever He leads us, it is safe to follow. He will not lead us astray. He will not forget that we need directions and a map. He can guide us to the way everlasting. Amen.
