"He tends his flock like a shepherd:
He gathers the lambs in his arms and carries them close to his heart;
he gently leads those that have young."
I am so grateful for the Lord's leading.
I fail so often on my own.
I think I've got it all figured out....
then I am grossly made aware that I don't have it all figured out.
That my life is truly selfish.
That for all the good things I do,
I am still a sinful, selfish, undeserving person
who needs the redeeming love of my Savior!
That taking up my cross and following Him
is a DAILY task.
One that is not dependent on mood or circumstance,
sun or rain.
Yesterday was a day filled with "willing" myself to remain
positive even though I wanted to cry.
Even though, because of a decision I had made,
my day wasn't going so well.
After a few words with the Lord and some time laying quietly,
I was reminded that peace comes from the Lord but that we must
"rest in it".
Help me Lord to not allow my emotions to dictate my mood.....
