In Luke 15 Jesus shares the parable of the lost sheep. A story I’ve heard my whole life. The thing is, I wouldn’t have been that one sheep that had wandered off. No, I’ve mostly been the good girl who did what she was supposed to do.
Predictable. Reliable. Responsible.
Most of the time.
I may not be a physical wanderer but I am a wanderer of heart and mind. And Jesus still goes after me and you. He knows when we are that lost little sheep, even though we appear on the outside to be in line and moving forward.
When we aren’t roaming off in a physical way that others can see, the enemy likes to swoop in to convince us of our failure. Don’t let that liar fool you.
God’s got you little one. He knows. Lay it before Him and hear Him say, ‘Rejoice with me; I have found my lost sheep.’
