God's Love

"The LORD is my shepherd, I shall not be in want. He makes me lie down in green pastures, He leads me beside quiet waters, He restores my soul. He guides me in paths of righteousness for His name's sake. Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me;" (Psalm 23:1-4a NKJV) God. Our Father...Our Shepherd. In some ways, they are overlapping, but both show how God loves and protects us. God guides us and leads us to places of safety, and teaches us the right and wrong paths to take; He gives us everything we need, often what we want, so that we don't lack for anything; God gives us quiet, soft places to sleep, and watches over while we sleep. He leads us to water both to drink and to fill our souls; And, at the end of our earthly lives, just like a loving parent or guardian, He is there with us comforting us, easing any fears, giving us peace, guiding us toward "the light," and helping us transition from this life to the next. Both a father, and a shepard, would do this for those they are in charge of because they love them...and God is both our shepherd and our father...and He loves us. Love, Beau
