“How the beasts groan! The herds of cattle are confused, because they have no pasture; even the flocks of sheep suffer.” Joel 1.18
Just as cattle become restless when they are hungry, the sheep (God’s people) groan, suffering from depression, addictions, and disharmony in their homes. They are at the mercy of various difficulties, even death. They need someone to help them and guide them to the Shepherd of their souls.
