"When he went ashore he saw a great crowd, and he had compassion on them, because they were like sheep without a shepherd. And he began to teach them many things.” ~ Mark 6:34 (ESV)
I give thanksgiving today, Lord, that You continue to speak to our hearts. Even though the cannon of Scripture is complete and full, You gently whisper to the quiet places in our souls, always speaking something new and fresh. Your Word is living, breathing and moving - alive in me.
Jesus, I praise you for Your tender heart of compassion. You care about our needs more than we could ever imagine. You see the bewildered looks on our faces and the piercing confusion in our souls and You come to guide us out of these dark lost places into the safety of Your arms.
Thank You Lord, for reaching down to this simple woman, condescending to share Your vision with me, inviting me into this partnership with You in the ministry of reconciliation. All out of Your compassion.
