“How think ye? if a man have an hundred sheep, and one of them be gone astray, doth he not leave the ninety and nine, and goeth into the mountains, and seeketh that which is gone astray? And if so be that he find it, verily I say unto you, he rejoiceth more of that sheep, than of the ninety and nine which went not astray.” – Matthew 18:12-13 KJV
Dear Lord,I often feel like I’m going to fall apart, I don’t know what’s wrong with me. I’m not who I used to be but I’m not who I’m meant to be either.
Somehow, I have managed to wonder so far from the flock and the storm is getting pretty rough out here. I know you continue to search for me and I promise I’m waiting here crying to be found.
My fear is rising in my heart because I can hear the wolves coming for me, Lord. If you could somehow shine your light so that I may see, I’ll run to your sheltering arms with haste.
I pray that you will forgive me for getting lost out here in the wilderness, I didn’t mean to. I seen something that caught my eye and drew my attention from you, it nearly led me to my death. I’m waiting here now, in the middle of this darkness. I pray so hard for the sun to bring me peace but without you here beside me I fear it won’t bring me peace as it did before.
My Lord, you are my protector and my peace, my warmth and shelter from the treacherous storms and enemies that are coming to destroy me. I see now that my only home and peace is with you, please come rescue me… I’m ready.
Yours Truly, A Lost Lamb
