Two Together: Lost

All of us, like sheep, have strayed away. We have left God’s paths to follow our own. Yet the Lord laid on him the sins of us all.

Isaiah 53:6 (NLT)

If a man has a hundred sheep, and one wanders away and is lost, what will he do? Won’t he leave the ninety-nine others and go out into the hills to search for the lost one? And if he finds it, he will rejoice over it more than over the ninety-nine others safe at home! Just so, it is not my Father’s will that even one of these little ones should perish.

Matthew 18:12-14 (TLB)

I think there are times when we know we are lost and other times when we don’t know we are lost. It’s those times, when I am so sure I am on the right path, when I’ve done my research and made what I’ve determined to be a good decision, yet have left God out of it, that I find myself confused by my outcome and in need of direction.

Lord,

You are the Good Shepherd.
When I am in your care,
I am secure.
You lead me to restful places,
And you lead me to bountiful places.
When I wander off
You rescue me,
Because you love and care for me.

Amen
