As I reflect on Thanksgiving, I am reminded of another major thing I experienced going through cancer. Someone was there for me. People prayed for me, sent me cards, left messages of good cheer, took me to appointments, and most importantly-they cared. We all share this journey of life with others. Heartfelt gestures can touch us deeply. The Bible says God is love. The image of God as our shepherd is endearing to me. I think Isaiah 40:11 speaks about God’s care for us the best. “He tends his flock like a shepherd: He gathers the lambs in his arms and carries them close to his heart.”
In what ways do you feel the care from others? Do you believe God cares for you?
