Psalm 23:1-2

The Lord is my shepherd, I lack nothing.
 He makes me lie down in green pastures,
he leads me beside quiet waters,
he refreshes my soul. – Psalm 23:1-2

Dear Lord,

I see how you have been shepherding me.  You provide me with a place to live, an income, moments of rest and relaxation, friends to laugh and cry with, family to share life’s burdens and blessings. I have what I need to feed my body and comfort my soul.  You have given me a church with a pastor who gets grace and truth, who works hard to refresh my heart with your teachings.  You have given me police protection, good roads, and transportation. I have the best medical care in the world within a few miles of my home.  You are my good shepherd.  Now, quiet my wanting heart so I can enjoy the blessing of having all my needs completely met. And help me to reflect the joy of being your cherished lamb to others.  AMEN

Pastor Don Patterson

Pause to reflect on what God does for you and will start to reflect the joy of being his lamb.
