Isaiah 40:9-11(NASB)
9 Get yourself up on a high mountain,
O Zion, bearer of good news,
Lift up your voice mightily,
O Jerusalem, bearer of good news;
Lift it up, do not fear.
Say to the cities of Judah,
“Here is your God!”
10 Behold, the Lord GOD will come with might,
With His arm ruling for Him.
Behold, His reward is with Him
And His recompense before Him.
11 Like a shepherd He will tend His flock,
In His arm He will gather the lambs
And carry them in His bosom;
He will gently lead the nursing ewes.

We know Jesus is the Good Shepherd, who gathers His lambs and carries them in His bosom. He is a gentle guide to those who love Him, and we want to be among His lambs. All we have to do is to open our hearts to Him and make Him Lord of our lives, putting Him first above all the cares and distractions and allures of the world.

Heavenly Father, we give our hearts to You and accept Your Son as our Lord and Savior. We trust that He will guide us gently and carry us in His bosom. In His holy name. Amen.
