“Show me the wonders of your great love.” –Psalm 17:7

At one of my lowest points, and after I’d exhausted all my human efforts, I put my troubles in a box, wrapped it in white paper, tied it with a red satin ribbon and in my prayer and thoughts gave it to Jesus. I needed him to show me he cared (as if he hadn’t already throughout my life).

 And he did.

First it came in a sense of peace with my surrender.

Sometimes that is answer enough.

But he did more and worked out a solution for a particular problem which I could take credit for in no way, but through him.


He is my shepherd.

“Acknowledge that the Lord is God.

He made us, and we are his.

We are his people, the sheep of his pasture.”

(Psalm 100:3)

 I am his sheep.

“We are the people he watches over.

The sheep under his care.”

(Psalm 95:7)

 Jesus loves me.

“Greater love has no man,

than to lay down his life for his friends.”

(John 15:13)

 What is love?

“There are three things that will endure—

faith, hope, and love—

and the greatest of these is love.”

(1 Corinthians 13:13)
