The Lord is my Shepherd into deep valleys green He leads with His staff by a quiet soft stream But when sin beckons, He tells me to walk On the straight narrow way through the cleft in the rock And through the valley of shadows and tears His rod and His staff comfort all of my fears When my enemies set up an ambush ahead He shows me a table where His banquet is spread Then If I stop to worry about things left undone His goodness and mercy lead me farther along With His cross ever guiding like a good shepherd’s staff We will come to His house when our journey is past!
Are you a staff for the Shepherd to lean on A yielded heart to His plans for today? A calendar filled with appointments On His schedule and choice for your way? For His burden grows lighter and lighter And His yoke is a joy to receive When He gathers the weak and the lowly To follow and simply believe Through trials and troubles He leads us His voice rings more clearly each day Though dark paths and steep valleys lie just up ahead He safely carries His lambs all the way! He shall feed his flock like a shepherd: he shall gather the lambs with his arm, and carry them in his bosom, and shall gently lead those that are with young.

Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching. Hebrews 10:25
We were so blessed to be celebrating our one year anniversary of prayer and praise meetings at Sunshine Christian Village. This was a meeting that never happened before the pandemic. We know God works all things together for good and He used our need for fellowship when the normal Sunday services inside the facility were cancelled to motivate us to start an outdoor fellow praise place at the fountain. Slowly we were allowed into the activity building which is separate from the facility and together as a team and with God’s help we are growing our outreach. Today the combined theme of our readings, message and songs was prayer and the 23rd Psalm. Towards the end I shared this song which the Lord gave me this year, called The Voice of the Shepherd. I not only hope you like the song but that you take time this weekend to open your heart and listen for the Shepherd’s voice. If you are His sheep He knows your name and is calling it today!
