Morning Thought: Often we put too much weight on human beings caring for us. Yet, like a tree branch cracking under pressure, the sum of your cares outweigh any human’s ability to endure. Take comfort that the Lord himself is your shepherd. He will care, deliver, gather, feed, lead, seek, heal and strengthen you. Look to him and him alone. “For this is what the Sovereign Lord says: I myself will search for my sheep and look after them” (Ezekiel 34:11, NIV).
