For the Flock, Day 1

How is everybody doing?
I know, me too.
I’m just a little unnerved by news reports,
but watching for a move of God in our midst.

As we all do our part and practice social isolation for fifteen days (at least), I hope we each can redeem the time by using it wisely. I hope books are read, books are written, music is listened to, music is composed, bread is kneaded and baked, garages are cleaned, letters are written. I hope families pray together, play games together, are patient with each other. I hope the still, small voice of the Lord gets our attention. I hope we find strength and comfort in His Word.

But I trust in you, O Lord;
I say, “You are my God.”
My times are in your hands.
Psalm 31:14-15

I listened to a reading of Psalm 23 this morning, and it felt like a moment of calm in the chaos, a balm for my jitters, a restful reminder of who I am and Who is leading me.

We are the flock.
We have a Shepherd.

Over the next several days, I invite you to meditate with me on this psalm of David. Let’s let our minds soak in the beauty and comfort of these life-giving, faith-building words.

  1. I absolutely love your posts. They have carried me through many trials and good times . But especially in these past few days they have brought hope and calm. Thank you for your faithfulness.

  2. Very Nice.
    Joyful story

    Quite watching the news so much.
    2 or 3 minutes is enough for me.
    They are selling news, not comfort
    Why have a one or 2 hour news casting when 5 minutes does it.
    The rest mostly casts fear.
    I finally found the scripture which is relative., or so I feel as such.
    “I tell you, my friends, do not be afraid……you are worth more than many sparrows.”
    Luke 12:4-7
    Thanks for the inspiration Dinah
