****** Bruce is now in heaven with the Lord ******* LIFE is SHORT
Are you feeling naked today? Are you hurting? Has your voice been silenced before the sheerer? Is your body laid out flat before the LORD?
JESUS KNOWS HOW YOU FEEL!
We all, like sheep, have gone astray,
each of us has turned to his own way;
and the LORD has laid on Him
the iniquity of us all.
He was oppressed and afflicted,
yet He did not open His mouth;
He was led like a lamb to the slaughter,
and as a sheep before her shearers is silent,
so He did not open His mouth.
By oppression and judgment He was taken away.
And who can speak of His descendants?
For He was cut off from the land of the living;
for the transgression of My people He was stricken.
"I am the Good Shepherd. The Good Shepherd lays down His life for the sheep. The hired hand is not the shepherd who owns the sheep. So when he sees the wolf coming, he abandons the sheep and runs away. Then the wolf attacks the flock and scatters it. The man runs away because he is a hired hand and cares nothing for the sheep.
"I am the Good Shepherd; I know My sheep and My sheep know Me— just as the Father knows Me and I know the Father—and I lay down My life for the sheep. I have other sheep that are not of this sheep pen. I must bring them also. They too will listen to My voice, and there shall be one Flock and one Shepherd.
Be still my soul, wait patiently before the LORD, be still my soul... BE STILL!
For those who are hurting, feeling naked, silenced and still before You - may we remember when it happened to You. You alone know the pain and suffering of grief, sickness and the devastations of life. May we fall on our faces before You and weep at your feet so that You alone can comfort us. Would you wrap Your nail-pierced hands around us and those we love today?
In Jesus' Name - our Messiah - HaGo'el A'doni!
AMEN and Amen!
