We Can Shout With Joy

Psalm 100, beginning at verse 1: “Make a joyful shout to the Lord, all you lands! Serve the Lord with gladness; come before His presence with singing. Know that the Lord, He is God; it is He who has made us, and not we ourselves; we are His people and the sheep of His pasture.”

You may not know this, but I was once a shepherd of real sheep. For several years, my wife and I owned a small sheep ranch. I daily cared for the sheep and their every need was my careful and constant concern. I knew most of them by name.

You know, I suppose because of this, it’s easy for me to understand how much God loves us. With joy we can come to Him with every need, big or small. You should have heard them call out every time they knew I was drawing near.

It’s time to pra-a-a-ay.

    Pastor Carter and Pastor Theresa, my mom let me listen to your testimony, and I did know you were a shepherd. Theresa and you have taught me how to face truth, confusion, and things I wish I had said to you sooner. I thank the Lord now that the bondage that surrounded me back then, isn't that some bondage that kept me silent from both you for so long. I shout for joy for that. Faiona
