Keep Walkin’

In lieu of a ROW80 check-in this week, I offer this encouragement …

My heart goes out to those who are hurting as a result of the devastating events that were in the news this past week.

I can’t help but think of Matthew 9:35-36, which says, “And Jesus went throughout all the cities and villages, teaching in their synagogues and proclaiming the gospel of the kingdom and healing every disease and every affliction. When he saw the crowds, he had compassion for them, because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd.” (emphasis mine)

Personally, I had no reason to be in a funk for part of the week, but I was. But so many had overwhelming reasons to throw up their hands and declare, “I give up.”

We desperately need the Good Shepherd. And when the evil threatens to immobilize us, we must keep walkin’.

  1. It is so easy to feel overwhelmed when we are constantly bombarded with bad news. I just try to keep looking to Jesus to keep me going. Thanks for sharing the song. I was at a Christian festival this weekend and had the chance to see Toby Mac, but needed sleep more.
