The Keeper of My Soul

You were like sheep that had lost their way, 
but now you have been brought back to follow 
the Shepherd and Keeper of your souls.
1 Peter 2:25
There is such peace knowing I am no longer lost.
Many years ago, I was mercifully found by the Lord.
But He didn't just find me and bring me back.
He brought me back to follow.
I didn't really know much about following.
He had to show me by guiding me
so that He could keep me.
He is my Shepherd and 
the Keeper of my soul.
He leads me along paths that He might
fill empty places with life,
breathe strength into weakness,
and settle me with streams of peace.

Thank You, Jesus, my Shepherd and Keeper,
 that You care about every part of my life.
You are the Keeper of my Soul.
You are my help and refuge.
Though I slumber and fight distractions
of every kind and on every level,
You are constant and steadfast.
You never sleep;
You know no distraction.
My help comes from the Lord 
Who made heaven and earth.
He will not allow my foot to be moved; 
He who keeps me will not slumber.
The Lord is my keeper....
He shall preserve my soul."
Psalm 121:2-6
