The Great Shepherd promises to always lead His sheep. He has given His very life for us. He will lead you through.
The Lord Is My Shepherd
23 A Psalm of David.
2 He makes me lie down in green fpastures.
He leads me beside still waters.1
3 He grestores my soul.
for his jname’s sake.
I will mfear no evil,
for nyou are with me;
your orod and your staff,
they comfort me.
5 You pprepare a table before me
in qthe presence of my enemies;
you ranoint my head with oil;
my scup overflows.
all the days of my life,
Dearest Ann, God has placed you in precisely the time for which you have been created. In that sense, we are all much like Queen Esther, created for such a time as this!
Your children are a gift to you, entrusted to you by a wise, loving Father who knows your comings in and goings out. He is not surprised by your struggles nor dismayed. I have also been only a shadow of a woman and mother…and in ways still am. You are not alone. We are tempted to place undue pressure on ourselves when the beautiful truth is that God is mindful that we are but dust (Psalm 103:13,14).
Taking hold of the mighty hand of God, place yourself by faith in His care. This time won’t last forever. May God in His mercy calm your mind and grant you peace.
