English: Fotherley Love High Fotherley Farm in...

Luke 15:4 (ESV)

“What man of you, having a hundred sheep, if he has lost one of them, does not leave the ninety-nine in the open country, and go after the one that is lost, until he finds it?

 

The behavior was tantamount to stalking!  Honest, what innocently began as my routine daily call to my Mommy morphed into slow building frantic behavior when I did not reach her.  Every few minutes for hours, I dialed, then dialed again and again, oh and again!

With each unanswered call my anxiety and blood pressure  levels climbed.  Call after call, my overly creative imagination formulated a plethora of  “what if’s”, I was a wreck.  Then I called in the big guns, my daughter, who just so happened to be walking through the door of the house and was able to witness the picture of  mom sitting quietly and innocentlyon the couch.  Blissfully, safe, sound, relaxed and unaware that I was a basket case.  Confession, I broke down and cried like a child lost in the mall surrounded by well-meaning adults, none of whom were my beloved and I just wanted my mommy.

Occupying a much calmer place in my mind while meditating,  I felt the tap of the Shepherd’s staff on my brain!  Hey, that is how God loves us!  Granted,  He is infinitely more patient and definitely calmer yet He continually and consistently seeks to have a relationship with us.   He knocks.  He sends the Holy Spirit to whisper, entreating us to come, to feel His Love and trust in Him.  This morning I am grateful for the Love of my Savior who hunts those who are lost, offering not only unconditional love but the promises of eternal life and a heavenly home!

Making His praise glorious!
