Feeling Lost and Alone

The New Testament is full of scripture about the Shepherd and the sheep:

  • Then Jesus told them this parable: "Suppose one of you has a hundred sheep and loses one of them. Doesn’t he leave the ninety-nine in the open country and go after the lost sheep until he finds it? And when he finds it, he joyfully puts it on his shoulders and goes home. Then he calls his friends and neighbors together and says, 'Rejoice with me; I have found my lost sheep.'" (Luke 15:3-6, NIV)
     
  • I am the good shepherd; I know My sheep and My sheep know Me. (John 10:14, NIV)
     
  • 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. (Isaiah 40:11, NIV)
     
  • "My sheep listen to My voice; I know them, and they follow Me." (John 10:27, NIV)


Recently I came across this video. The expression on the sweet little lamb reminded me of the way I sometimes feel, especially in a time of need or crisis. Lost. Alone. In the dark. But, by the end of the video I was uplifted and reminded of the truth. Are you ready? (Grab your tissues!)​

Have you ever felt like the little lamb in the video? Lost and alone? That’s the time to look up and know that God is with you, directing your path. All you have to do is turn your eyes toward Him and feel his strong arms around you.

Most likely, our problems won’t magically go away, but we will be stronger and able to get through anything. We are never alone when we have a relationship with our Shepherd.
