Take a couple of deep breaths.
Recall that you are in the presence of God.
You are loved and blessed.

Isaiah 40:11
11 He tends his flock like a shepherd: He gathers the lambs in his arms and carries them close to his heart; he gently leads those that have young.

Jesus gently cares for His people as a shepherd, caring for them, loving them. I am reminded of the 23rd Psalm. I want God’s love, care, and protection. I accept His leadership. I hear his voice and I choose to follow his lead. Jesus said “my sheep hear my voice, and I know them and they follow me. Jesus said that He would lay down His life for His sheep, and later on the Gospel’s tell us that is exactly what He did.

What does it mean for me to be in the care of Jesus the shepherd.
In what ways do I demonstrate that I hear the voice of Jesus and follow Him?

Pray to God in your own words or perhaps use the prayer below.
Loving Jesus,
I choose to follow you, where ever you go, where ever you send me.
I place my faith and trust in you.
Draw me closer to you.
Help me to be more like you.
