Which Path Do You Choose?

The Lord is my Shepherd.

This message is the heart of Psalm 23.  Like a Shepherd cares for his sheep, leading them to food, water, and safety, Our Shepherd, the Lord, leads us.

If we’re willing to listen.

And follow the path He has chosen for us.

Sometimes we think we know the way.  So we jump forward not thinking to ask God if we should.  We chase the path of money, lifestyle, or fame.

We live life “to the fullest” because we don’t want the discomfort of conforming to the perceived stringent Biblical road map God has provided.

Following His path might require us to change.

And change is hard.

But it’s worth it!

God knows exactly what we need for contentment and restoration.  In fact, He knows better than we do.

The path He has chosen for you and for me?  It’s one filled with love, peace, joy, comfort, strength, courage, faith, and life!

Friends, we have a choice.

We can allow our Shepherd to guide us - to walk with us on His approved path- and be blessed with true joy.


We can take our own path, alone.  Endlessly searching for happiness and purpose among worldly possessions and circumstances.

I choose my dependable, caring, all-knowing Shepherd.

I choose life.

Which path do you choose?
