11 He will tend his flock like a shepherd;
he will gather the lambs in his arms;
he will carry them in his bosom,
and gently lead those that are with young.
The Holy Bible: English Standard Version. (2001). (Is 40:11). Wheaton: Standard Bible Society.
A shepherd takes care of his flock. Our shepherd takes care of us. There are times you think you cannot go on. He will gather you in his arms. There are times you feel overwhelmed with your children and their direction in life. Place these worries in Jesus. He will gently lead you. He will gather you children in his arms.
Our day to day experience sometimes makes us doubt. Sometimes we are restless. Sometimes we wander. But Jesus tends his flock. He can and will bring you back to the herd even though he may have let you wander a little while. Jesus, our shepherd, will carry your burdens, gently lead you, and one day usher you home.
What an awesome friend we have in Jesus.
