Thought for the Day: Mariah preached a wonderful sermon on Psalm 23 this past Sunday, and there are other Psalms that speak of the Lord being like a shepherd. Here we have the wonderful image of God carrying us as a shepherd might carry a lost or injured sheep. God does not abandon us or forsake us, but carries us ‘forever’ or it could be translated as ‘eternity.’ No matter how difficult this life might become, God remains faithful. The Lord lifts us forever, and when the time comes, the Lord delivers us into eternity. Those words are full of hope, especially in those moments when despair and darkness appear to be winning the day. No matter how bleak the situation might appear, we hear God say, “Don’t worry! I’ve got you.”
Prayer: Thank you, Lord God, for being my shepherd in this journey of life. Amen.
