Baaaaaaaaa!!!!

As I have shared with you before, I live in a very large Christian Retirement Village in North Florida…along the Georgia boarder, between Jacksonville and Tallahassee.  We are in a rural area with cattle, horses, sheep, large chicken farms, and the infamous country roads.  It is peaceful and dark at night.  I am such a country girl, I don’t even like to go for a 25 minute drive to Walmart…Ha!

Last week I drove by a sheep farm.  The sheep had just been shorn and were huddled together as if they were embarrassed, or cold. (HeHe…it was 95 degrees that day)

Then, Sunday morning, our Pastor preached on JESUS, THE GOOD SHEPHERD from the book of Ezekiel.  What a joy to be reminded that although we are stinky, “stupid” sheep who wander and go astray, our Good Shepherd seeks us out and covers us with His protection and correction.

Ezekiel 34, portions from vs. 13, 14, 15, 16 “I look after my sheep.  I will rescue them…I will tend them in a good pasture, I myself will tend my sheep and have them lie down , declares the Sovereign Lord…I will search for the lost and bring back the strays…I will bind up the injured and strengthen the weak…I will shepherd the flock with justice.”

John 10  gives Jesus’ words about His sheep knowing His voice and following Him, and that He is the Good Shepherd who lays down His life for the sheep.

Isaiah 40:11 “He tends His flock like a shepherd: He gathers the lambs in His arms and carries them close to His heart; He gently leads those that have young.”

Now that I know He cares about me I will answer this way…Psalm 23

The LORD is my shepherd, I shall not be in want.(provision)  He makes me lie down in green pastures, He leads me beside quiet waters, He restores my soul.(rest)  He guides me in paths of righteousness (right decisions) for His Name’s Sake.  Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for You are with me, Your rod and your staff, they comfort me (correction).  You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies .(Spiritual warfare)  You anoint my head with oil, my cup overflows(healing). Surely goodness and love (mercy) will follow (pursue) me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the LORD forever.”(NIV translation and my inserts)

Happy to be one of His stinky sheep…..Baaaaaaaaaa!
