Type that in MSN messenger and you get an emoticon of a sheep. It is on my peronal message now and it reminds me of the song “Shepherd of my Soul”. It was a song during last Sunday’s worship and I was truly ministered. It reminds me to be submissive and to follow wherever God may lead me.

 

Shepherd of my soul I give you full control,
Wherever You may lead I will follow.
I have made the choice to listen for Your voice,
Wherever You may lead I will go.

Be it in a quiet pasture or by a gentle stream,
The Shepherd of my soul is by my side.
Should I face a mighty mountain or a valley dark and deep,
The Shepherd of my soul will be my guide.

Shepherd of my soul Oh You have made me whole,
Where’er I hear You call how my teaars flow.
How I feel your love how I want to serve
I gladly give my heart to You O Lord.

Be it in the flowing river or in the quiet night,
The Shepherd of my soul is by my side.
Should I face the stormy weather or the dangers of this world.
The Shepherd of my soul will be my guide.

 

I think the lyrics of the song was inspired by Psalm 23.

Today in the MRT, I was thinking about University of Melbourne and worries all flooding in again. God used a very interesting way to speak to me. There was this lady wearing a T-shirt with Psalm 23:4 printed on it. It reads,

“Even when I walk through the dark valley of death, I will not be afraid, for you are close beside me.” (NLT)

“I will not be afraid” stood out to me. Interestingly, how this NLT version was different. Usually in most other versions, it is “I fear no evil.” If it was in the other versions, I would not be reminded of the verses God gave me when I first got the offer from University of Melbourne, which I even blogged about it in “Don’t be afraid.” Why, how could I forget. Thank God for reminding me of the word He gave me last time. He truly touches me.

So once again, I dedicate myself to God that I will not be afraid and to follow wherever He leads me.
