"The LORD is my Shepherd; I shall not want"
"As a FAITHFUL Shepherd, our Lord MUST lead us into the SHADOWS as well as into the SUNSHINE. It is how we respond that makes the difference between defeat and victory.
If we become preoccupied with the SHADOWS, we will become cynical, bitter, discouraged and defeated.
If we become preoccupied with the SUNSHINE, we may become self-satisfied, self-centered, thoughtless of others, and worse still, FORGETFUL OF HIM.
But if we remain preoccupied with the SHEPHERD, regardless of shadow OR sunshine, we will overcome the peril of both with victory."
(Luke 10:38-42; II Corinthians 3:18; Hebrews 12:1-2)
