The Gentle Shepherd


Ezekiel 34:12 As a shepherd looks after his scattered flock when he is with them, so will I look after my sheep. I will rescue them from all the places where they were scattered on a day of clouds and darkness.

***

Gentle Shepherd come and lead us
For we need You to help us find our way
Gentle Shepherd come and feed us
For we need Your strength from day to day
There’s no other we can turn to
Who can help us face another day
Gentle Shepherd come and lead us
For we need You to help us find our way

***

The Shepherd lays down his life for his sheep. That’s what the Great Shepherd did for all mankind.

When we were lost in the deep, dark abyss of sin, He came looking and didn’t stop until He found us. If we stray from the fold too many times, He will break our “legs” and carry us around on His shoulders until that time we can again walk on our own. After that, we won’t be so apt to stray.

Remember, you didn’t find Him, He found you! When you weren’t looking for Him, He was searching for you.

If the “storm” has been raging against you recently, and has forced you into places dark and deep, hold on. He’ll find you!
