The Weekend Brew: Shepherd

Friend, I am not sure what you are facing today.  I’ve had a week of frustration, with myself, my circumstances and I have had to fight to keep looking through the eyes of faith.  I want to remind you that He is able.  He is with you and will never leave you.  The Good Shepherd, you can trust Him with your heart.

In the process, in the waiting
You’re making melodies over me.
And Your presence is the promise
for I am a pilgrim on a journey. –
Shepherd, Amanda Cook (Bethel Music)

I hope you will click over and listen to the entire song.  Just this first verse alone leaves me in tears at the thought that even though it’s hard at times, the Lord is truly working in my life.  And He’s working in your life too!  Let’s keep our eyes fixed on Him, shall we?  He is our Shepherd, our Good and Faithful Shepherd, and He promises to lead us well.

      This entire album is messing me up, in a good way. So good. Have a lovely weekend my friend.

    • Jedidja says:

      Sometimes we have, yes. Sometimes we have a week full of frustration and failure. But God says: “My grace is sufficient for you.” Enough grace for each new day. He makes all things new, on His time. Let us follow the Shepherd.

    “Oh how I love you, you have not forsaken me!” I could listen to those words from the song over and over. This is the perfect song for encouragement. Great choice, Barbie! I pray your weekend is full of reminders of God’s love and it washes over you and brings you peace. Blessings!

  18. Barbie….”Let’s keep our eyes fixed on Him, shall we?” I think in times of difficulty we can do nothing but look up.

    Hi Barbie…you are right…that song is so beautiful and comforting. I’ve had a couple of rough weeks myself and I have needed my faith strengthened. Thank you for sharing this! Have a blessed Sunday and a great week ahead!

    • Barbie says:

      Thankful you were blessed Debby. I just tried to click on your name to go to your blog, and the link is not working. Have a lovely weekend.

  20. I’m so sorry you have had a difficult week, friend. I pray you get some rest and enjoy this Lord’s Day.

  21. Thank you for this post, Barbie. I have felt under spiritual attack, lately, and lacking strength to resist temptations. I have been reading The Screwtape Letters by C.S. Lewis and it is giving me insight into all the ways the enemy of our souls uses to try to pull us away from God. I am just trying to stay focused and not look to the right or to the left. This post is needed encouragement.

  22. Heather says:

    I hope your week is better this week. 🙂
    Mine is getting better. Trusting in Him always.
