Some of the stories that author and pastor Robert Morgan tells in his book, "The Lord is my Shepherd", have to do with his own sheep because they have had a small flock of sheep for many years.
When one of his sheep, Ethel, became blind, Robert will do a couple of things for her everyday. One is to give her water. Since they did not have a lake at their house, he will bring in the water hose and fill up the trough with water.
Sheep has a natural fear of running water namely because they are afraid of loud noises and of drowning. As long as there is a loud sound of running water, Ethel will not go near at all. Yet once the hose is stopped and the water is still, she will go and drink to her fill.
That's why the good Shepherd leads us "beside the still waters" - keeps us safe and at peace. So follow Him every step as He loves you and calls you by name.
"He makes me to lie down in green pastures;
He leads me beside the still waters." - Ps 23:2
