PostHeaderIcon THE LORD IS MY SHEPHERD

When I was a student at Moore’s Elementary school, I had a teacher named Miss Ross. A petite woman, she was stern and had an iron hand. There were several things that were mandatory assignments. You had to learn them or face Miss Ross! Everyone including me dreaded looking her in the eyes or feeling her black belt on your behind. In Mississippi in the early 1960’s, corporal punishment (as we called it) and religious teachings were still permitted in the classrooms. If you were disciplined by Miss Ross, you couldn’t turn her in to your parents because in those days teachers ruled – unanimously; no questions asked! My parents felt that if I was punished, it was justified! Go figure! One of Miss Ross’ mandatory recitations before the entire class was King David’s Twenty – Third Psalms. You had to say it over and over again until you got it right. Today, I thank you Miss Ross because Psalms 23, “The Lord is my Shepherd” has helped, guided, and uplifted me in so many ways! Miss Ross put those powerful words in my head; I put them in my heart. Happy Sunday! Be blessed!

PostHeaderIcon Let God be your GPS! You’ll never get lost!

Since I am directionally challenged, one of the most practical gifts that I have received was a GPS device. GPS’s can take you directly to your destination. Your only job is to put in the address. I love them! All mechanical devices have their shortcomings. GPS’s cannot see construction zones and other deviations that might take you off course. However, I have founded the best navigation system in the world. When you let God direct and guide you, you can make it to your destination even if you don’t know where you are going! God can and will place you on the right path. God doesn’t need satellite devices or signals. He knows the world and you! Remember, he created both! He can effortlessly recalculate your route; turn you around; and place you upside down. Gravity is no issue with God! Better yet, he can move other objects – people, places, and things – that may be obstacles out of your way. Forget Rand McNally! God has the best roadmap, the Holy Bible! So if you are lost, can’t see your way out, need clarity of vision, or a failed – proof system to keep you personally, professionally, and spiritually wise, put God behind the wheel. Let him cruise you around and order your steps. You will never get lost. Believe, be obedient to his Word, and be deep in your faith as you “go and let God!”
