“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

There will be days we become distracted and forget to trust the One who loves us. We will forget who handles our days and need to be reminded where to find calm. But, the Good Shepherd will guide us back where we belong. He will redirect our steps and help us when we're lost. And, when we forget which way to go, He will help us remember how to be found in Him. 

Jesus is the Provider of strength. He prepares us to trust the Father. He speaks to the heart of our weakness and shows us what to do. He uses circumstances in our lives to demonstrate His holiness. And, when we have experienced the power of peace, He prepares us to welcome the grace of God and helps us remember who handles ALL things. 

Christ will lead us in the right direction and show us how it feels to embrace a trusting heart. He will remind us to put our hope in Him. He will help us recognize the power of God’s strength. But, we will need to faithfully follow and never be afraid to welcome His healing love. 

Dear God, Thank you for Your love. Lift us with Your arms of strength and carry us EVERY day of our lives. Forgive us when we forget we are held by the hope of Your holiness. Humble our hearts, so we will recognize the power of Your strength and be guided by the offering of Your everlasting love. Amen
