Like a shepherd he feeds his flock; in his arms he gathers the lambs, Carrying them in his bosom, and leading the ewes with care.
God leads us and cares for us, that we might not go astray. We are like the flock that knows and follows the voice of the shepherd. Occasionally we do not hear, or worse, we choose to ignore God and go astray. At these times, we remember that God draws us close and carries us in his bosom with care, forgiveness, and love.
(Pray in these words or your own.)
Shepherd God, you care for me with gentleness and love. Help me to listen for your voice and to turn to you in my time of need.
