Surely Goodness and Mercy shall follow me all the days of my life, and I shall dwell in the house of the LORD forever.
I've been thinking about our Good Shepherd and how much He cares for us. . . or maybe I should say I've been TRYING to comprehend how much He truly cares. . .and of course, my mind can not grasp His love. I'm so thankful that He understands we have this treasure of salvation in "earthen vessels." I'm sure you're familiar with Psalm 23 and the words of David--how he compares the LORD to being our Shepherd. The chapter may have just a few verses, but they're so full of "goodies," it's something that should be thought about, mulled over, and digested slowly but surely over time in order to receive its fullest blessings.
Thank the LORD, that no matter what season you're in--whether it be "spring" or "summer," and you're growing spiritually by leaps and bounds ~OR~ you're feeling like you're "falling" away and your heart is even growing cold----no matter what season you're in spiritually---The Goodness and Mercy of God remain ever faithful as your guide, to keep you on track! Trust Him. God is soooo good, isn't He? Thank the LORD! :)
Thank You, Father, for your goodness and mercy and for being our Great Shepherd Who will lead us in plain paths of righteousness for Your Name's sake. Help us to follow You as we listen for Your tender voice.
In Jesus' Name, Amen.
