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.

Psalm 23:1-3


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

Points of Reflection

  • Do we fully trust that walking with Jesus protects us?
  • What does being a “Good Shepherd” mean to us?
  • What are is our life’s purpose and how does Jesus help?

Blessings, until next time,
