His Shepherd Heart

He calls His own sheep by name 
and leads them out.
When He has brought His own sheep out,
He walks on before them, 
and the sheep follow Him 
because they know His voice…
I came that they may have and enjoy life,
and have it overflowing in abundance.
I am the Good Shepherd. 
John 10: 3-4, 11

The Lord is my Shepherd.
He knows me, calls me and leads me.
He walks on before me that I might follow Him.
He speaks to me and has enabled me 
by grace to recognize His voice.
Lord, everything about Your shepherd heart is good.
You came that I might have life overflowing.
I want to know You more intimately as the One
who calls me, leads me and speaks to me.
I know that You have many names, 
but I want to understand You as my Shepherd.
It is a most caring, compassionate
and trustworthy name.
You are not just A good shepherd.
You are MY good shepherd.
It is infinitely important 
that I know this personally.
Help me to see You as my Shepherd today.
I want to see You as You lead me.
I want to hear You as You speak to me.
I want to know Your abundant life today.
I desperately need Your grace.
I desperately desire Your face.
You are my Shepherd.
I shall not want
anything but more of You.
