Day 212- Thankful our Shepherd is right there going through the difficult valley with His sheep

Metaphorically speaking, I am a sheep, and the LORD is my Shepherd.

Overcoming self-pity, hurt feelings, and rejection

Today an old, unwelcome acquaintance came to visit and brought along some of his unwelcome buddies.  I’m going to call them self-pity, hurt feelings, rejection, lies, slow burn, unforgiveness, blindness, and unthankfulness.
