Musings of a Sheep
What if my Shepherd’s leading me
In pathways I don’t like?
I’m none too pleased with what I see
That’s coming down the pike.
What if I’ve not yet come to grips
With trials of the past?
What if each time the valley dips,
Familiar fears rise fast?
What if I feel like I’ve been burned?
What if I’ve had my fill?
What if I haven’t fully learned
Surrender to His will?
What if it’s not my place to choose
The route my Shepherd takes?
I will not fear the paths You use—
Lead on, for Your name’s sake.
What if Your love that never fails
Is all I really need?
Though shadows loom and fears assail,
I’ll follow as You lead.
Question to consider: How have you seen your Shepherd leading you in your trials and fears?
