As much as my heart is broken, when I think of His goodness and his promises, my heart swells. He promises to be my Shepherd, my keeper, my comforter, my strong tower, my friend..... He has been that and more. Though I experience ups and downs, his rod and staff always comfort me, as long as I stay close to him.
As much as I miss my babies, who better to be with, and what better place to be? Dwelling in His house, means I will forever call upon and enjoy His presence, forever.
As tough as it is to understand the "whys", I am comforted knowing that he is always near and willing wrap me in his comforting arms. Like the SHepherd does to/for his sheep, he guides, leads and protects me from danger. He has made my enemies my footstools by allowing me to rise above their actions. What a great hope to have....... I really do love Him.
The Lord is my Shepherd, He makes me lie in pastures green
He leadeth me beside quiet water, that wash over me.
Though I will walk in the shadows
His rod and His staff comfort me
And I will recline at a table, in the presence of my enemies.
Surely, Goodness and mercy will follow me
And I will dwell in the house of the lord, close by His side, I will abide in His lovingkindness, FOREVER.
Where is my expected end?
