Close To His Heart

“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.” Isaiah 40: 11 ( NIV)

 Wow! Life has a way to bring us surprises. Not so much the surprises that bring us tears of joy but surprises that may shock us down to our knees in sorrow or despair. Yet we do not have to be in despair because our Shepherd is taking care of us. In the Bible the Lord refers to Himself as a Shepherd who cares deeply for His flock which are His people. Domesticated sheep have little wit or wisdom on taking care of themselves or defending against tenacious predators yet the Shepherd will be there at all times to guide, defend and care for them. So it is with us who belong to Him, He will be there at all times to be our Companion, Friend, Attendant and Guide throughout our lives. Dear Lord, please remind us that You carry us in Your loving arms close to Your Heart. Please comfort us with your Peace through the unfortunate surprises that come our way.
