|Jesus and the Lamb by artist Katherine Brown|
Welcome Cottage Friends,
This print by artist Katherine Brown is one of my favorite works of art. It so beautifully portrays Isaiah 40:11 (NIV):
He tends his flock like a shepherd:
He gathers the lambs in his arms
and carries them close to his heart;
he gently leads those that have young.
I know that many of you who have placed your trust in Jesus are struggling with life issues right now, and perhaps you cannot see an answer to your prayers. Your faith may be wavering, but know that the Good Shepherd has you firmly in His grip and is holding you close to His heart. He never lets go! Never! There is something in my life that I have been praying about for fourteen years, and I am still waiting to see Him complete that work. It may not happen in my lifetime, but I know that He has heard me and He will deliver. In the meantime, He is holding me close to His heart. And He is holding you, as well.
I have another precious song by Keith and Kristyn Getty to share with you today: He Will Hold Me Fast. Let this be your song of faith today, as it is mine.
I love you, I'm thinking of you, and I'm praying for you.
