The Lord is My Shepherd

The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want. 

He makes me lie down in green pastures;
he leads me beside still waters; he restores my soul.
He leads me in right paths for his name’s sake.

Psalms 23:1-3

Our life with Jesus leads us down the right paths. We are both strengthened and protected through our faithful beliefs. Jesus guides us through the difficult and turbulent times of our lives. When we invite Jesus to take over our hearts, we emerge with a new direction. A direction of calm and grandeur. No longer troubled, but content, we lead lives with purpose and joy. We will become rested and resolved. We become caring and hopeful. Like any good shepherd, Jesus leads us protectively towards our life’s purpose.

Points of Reflection

  • Do you fully trust that walking with Jesus protects you?
  • What does being a “good shepherd” mean to you?
  • What is your life’s purpose, and how does Jesus help you obtain it?

Blessings, until next time,
