Where I live there aren’t many shepherd so I tried to think about someone in my area who acted like a shepherd to a sheep. What I came up with was an animal rescuer. They are passionate and noble people who want to help neglected, abused animals, who cannot help themselves. I think that captures who God is.
He encourages me to lay down on a soft bed.
He leads me to a clean water dish.
He gives me hope in humanity
He takes me on walks in the park, because he’s good.
Even though I remember dark times and bad owners, I will fear no more, for you are with me.
Your protection and kindness comfort me.
You give me delicious food, even when I think enemies are near.
You clean my matted fur, I’m a happy puppy.
Surely because of your love, I will follow you all the days of my life.
I will live in your house, my rescuer, forever.
