Our Lord, the Great Shepherd knows what pastures are best for his sheep and they must not question or doubt, but trust and follow him. The Lord sees that the best pastures for some of us are to be found in the midst of opposition and earthly trials. If Jesus leads us there, we will grow and be made strong. Even though the waters may be troubled, he will make them still. Amen.
