Ponder Anew… for January 2019

A shepherd was asked why sheep often stray or get lost. He answered, “They are busy nibbling and don’t see where they are.” We tend to do the same. A little of the world here, a little of the world there, a bunch of this and a twig of that; and before you know it, we sheep are lost in the world. That is why God’s word teaches us to ‘turn to Him’, ‘abide in Him’, and ‘follow Him’.

In the New Year “…by the blood of Jesus, by the new and living way that he opened for us…” (Hebrews 10:19-20), let us live as God’s faithful children in penitential, prayerful, and powerful ways! And as Jesus taught us whenever trials come along, let’s just pray “your will be done.” (Matthew 26:42) and God Himself will lead us to higher ground.
