The Shepherd by DiVoran Lites
God Speaks of His Love and Care
Beloved, I am your shepherd. I know what you need. Look around you and see the green pastures, the lush green grass? That is your place to rest a while before you get back to work. And over there is a pool of clear, fresh water. When you are rested you may continue on the trail laid out before you. Watch for the arrows that show you the way to go.
Your trail goes through sunshine and through shade. Sometimes the light grows dim and you wonder if you will ever be able to see to move on. Be not afraid, I am with you. I will always be with you no matter how you feel or what you do. Troubles fade as I carry you through. One thing you need to know is that although the enemy wants nothing more than to destroy you, you can resist him and he will run away from you. I am always here to protect you and to make you powerful in my Spirit.
There now, we are coming out of the dark valley. On the side of the mountain you see a picnic area with a long redwood covered with a white damask cloth. All your friends and loved ones are there.
The chef has prepared favorite dishes and given you the appetite to enjoy them. Your enemies are furious because you reject their suggestions and trust in Me.
You are a blessed person. I give you the strength to bear anything you must. Look, here is the cup that overflows with all the good things such as love, peace, joy. You are thirsty, drink it down and it will be health and healing to your bones.
Here are the two black lab pups that want to play with you: Goodness and Mercy. They will follow you all the days of your life and you will all dwell with me in my house forever.
Psalm 23, John 10: 14-15.
“When the Mists have Rolled Away,” Words from the Broadman Hymnal.
Note: I just discovered that all the songs in the Broadman Hymnal are played on piano in the old fashioned way on this site. You can find words on the other one. For years, I’ve wondered what some of the songs I didn’t know must sound like and now, I can find out. I just have to figure out how to use the site. Happy Trails.
