A Sheep of the Shepherd

Robert Doisneau

Psalm 46 Good News Translation (GNT)

God Is with Us[a]
46 God is our shelter and strength,
    always ready to help in times of trouble.
2 So we will not be afraid, even if the earth is shaken
    and mountains fall into the ocean depths;
3 even if the seas roar and rage,
    and the hills are shaken by the violence.
4 There is a river that brings joy to the city of God,
    to the sacred house of the Most High.
5 God is in that city, and it will never be destroyed;
    at early dawn he will come to its aid.
6 Nations are terrified, kingdoms are shaken;
    God thunders, and the earth dissolves.
7 The Lord Almighty is with us;
    the God of Jacob is our refuge.
8 Come and see what the Lord has done.
    See what amazing things he has done on earth.
9 He stops wars all over the world;
    he breaks bows, destroys spears,
    and sets shields on fire.
10 “Stop fighting,” he says, “and know that I am God,
    supreme among the nations,
    supreme over the world.”
11 The Lord Almighty is with us;
    the God of Jacob is our refuge.

There will be a day when I will enter my Shepherd's house and at last ask of Him the answers to the things of life that amaze me, confound me, and even frighten me.  Until that day, I have His Word with its wisdom, its promises, and its mysteries.   
It can be a scary world.  Stay close to the Good Shepherd.
