I tried to be all things for everyone. Thinking back, I realize none of us were intended for that. Hmmm . . . was I thinking of my Lord, my neighbors, or myself? In my foolishness, I thought the answer was Jesus. I remember reading the 23rd Psalm and thinking “STUPID SHEEP.” Me, I had it all together . . . NOT! I was all about Martha!
Those sheep loved the Master, served Him well, and were lovingly cared for – Facing hunger or fear or uncertainty of any kind was no real problem. The Master (Shepherd) who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask had it all together since long before we were we! Those sheep had it good! THIS SHEEP is gonna follow the Shepherd far more closely than she used to!
20 Now to him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us, 21 to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever. Amen.
Ah, those green pastures
Where did the still waters go?
Good, the Shepherd’s near!

I am a northeast girl living in the south and it has taught me much! I never met a Doppelgänger (that I know of) but moving here introduced me to lots of large and small scary looking potential ganger types anxious to make my acquaintence!
ARE THESE Doppelgängers ?
DO THEY CONSIDER ME DINNER?

I am both blessed and humbled by any and all opportunities to be the Lord’s apprentice! It saddens me though when some fear they must be worthy, and it really breaks my heart to meet those eager to profess to be His replacement. . . thank you, Lord, for your unmerited favor!
