We welcomed a new addition to the farm a few weeks ago…a cute donkey. My daughter named the little foal Coco. I was riding the fence and noticed Coco bedded down and nodding off in the morning sun. I snapped a quick pic.
I thought of the words the shepherd boy David wrote in Psalm 23:1-2…”The Lord is my Shepherd; I shall not want. He maketh me lie down in green pastures: He leadeth me beside the still waters.”
We are all often too busy in life..,more than we can handle at times. Like sheep we can go astray and need a shepherd to bring us back to a safe and quiet place. Notice that David didn’t say, “He ASKED me to lie down”. He said that God, our Shepherd, MAKES us lie down. That’s what a true shepherd does. He knows what you NEED…you shall not want.
