“I have wandered away like a lost sheep; come and find me, for I have not forgotten your commands.” (Psalm 119:176, NLT)

“Everyone wanders away sometimes.

Face it. There’s no good argument for leaving the Shepherd. He knows you. He’s the only on who knows every thought you have ever had, every word you have ever said or left unsaid. And He still loves you and wants you to be with Him. Can you really think of a good reason to leave Him?

But undoubtedly you will. Everyone will stray. Everyone will turn their backs. Again and again.

“Come and find me,” you will pray. And He will. Your Shepherd will come with grace and mercy. He will come and pick you up and take you back to the flock again. Maybe this time you will stay.

Prayer: Lord, help me to understand that my best safe place is with You. Amen.”
