Doodle for the day:)

Hello!

My lifeline for the last 18 years has been Women’s Bible Study.  Let’s face it…without constant encouragement and accountability we fall away.  We are stupid sheep.  A friend I used to teach with (in children’s ministry) grew up on a farm that raised sheep.  stupid sheep.  He told me that when it got cold the sheep would huddle together….NO…not just huddle, actually PILE UP on top of each other.  He said that one day he went out to where they had been sleeping for the night and found a pile of dead sheep.  They had suffocated each other…and this happened more than once…20 sheep pile up.  WHAT A PICTURE of who we are…we are so slow to learn, and then have trouble remembering just what it is God has taught us…over and over, we pile up.

Women’s Bible Study is a preventative measure to avoid my own pile up.  Hence my sheep doodle today!

“My sheep hear my voice and I know them, and they follow Me.”  – John 10:27

Hearing God’s voice takes commitment. obedience. a sincere desire to put our stupid stubborn sheep will aside and humbly practice God’s presence.

“If you want to hear God’s voice clearly and you are uncertain, then remain in His presence until He changes this uncertainty.  Often much can happen during this waiting for the Lord.  Sometimes He changes pride into humility; doubt into faith and peace; sometime lust into purity.  The Lord CAN and WILL do it. ”  -Corrie Ten Boom

I want to be a listening sheep.
