“And when he brings out his own sheep, he goes before them; and the sheep follow him, for they know his voice.”  John 10:4 NKJV

“Then Jesus said to them again, ‘Most assuredly, I say to you, I am the door of the sheep.’ ” John 10:7 NKJV

“If anyone enters by Me, he will be saved, and will go in and out and find pasture.”  John 10:9 NKJV

We know His voice and follow HIm.

Thank You, Lord, for laying down Your life for us.  And here’s a simple poem  . . .

We are His sheep
and know His voice

where He leads
we will follow

for our Good Shepherd
is the door

through whcih we go
to the Father.

God bless you as you hear and follow Him today!

Head First

“And these are the sons of Ehud, who were the heads of the father’s houses of the inhabitants of Geba, and  who forced them to move to Manahath:

Naaman, Ahijah and Gera who forced them to move.”  1 Chronicles 8:6-7

Heads of the households make decisions about where the family goes and what it does.

Lord, help us lead our families ever closer to You.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

His House                                    

We love You, Lord
and we’ll follow
where You lead us
to this day.

You are the Head
of our households
and its to You
we bow and pray.


(This isn’t my house. 🙂 )

Whose Steps?

“For the children of Israel walked in all the sins of Jeroboam which he did; they did not depart from them . . .”  2 Kings 17:22

The fact that others are following in our paths puts a whole new realization to our steps.

Oh Lord, may all those who follow us be led straight to You.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

Who I Can Follow

We must honor and love
those around us each day
be respectful and listen
to what they say
but when it comes to following
there is only One’s way
may we all run after
the Lord Jesus, I pray.

They Forsook All

“And when they had done this, they caught a great number of fish, and their net was breaking.” Luke 5:6
“And they came and filled both the boats, so that they began to sink.” Luke 5:7
“So when they brought their boats to land, they forsook all and followed Him.” Luke 5:11

How many boat loads of fish have I received and been thankful for, but then stayed with, turning to the next need . . .how do I get it to market?

Oh Lord, move me beyond praying that my needs be met to praying that my life be sunk deep with the Meeter of my needs. And here’s a simple poem . . .

Catch and Release

Hearts weigh heavy
with gratitude
for needs
that have been met,
only to release the gift
and follow the Giver
to be closer
and closer yet.

There Are Many

“Now it happened, as He was dining in Levi’s house that many tax collectors and sinners also sat together with Jesus and His disciples; for there were many and they followed Him.” Mark 2:15

I’m one of those many sinners that followed Him.

Oh Lord, help me not to build pretenses, cliques and barriers that would keep anyone from following You. And here’s a simple poem . . .

Keeping A Path Cleared

I’m a simple sinner
following the Sinless Son
I’m flawed and weak
You are the perfect One.
May I never elevate myself
and unwittingly block the view
that would keep someone from coming
straight on after You.

“Follow Me”

“Then as Jesus passed on from there, He saw a man named Matthew sitting at the tax office.  And He said to him, “Follow Me.”
“And so it was as Jesus sat at the table in the house, that behold, many tax collectors and sinners came and sat down with Him and His disciples.”  Matthew 9:9-10

When Jesus called Matthew to follow Him, He broke down the walls and barriers so other tax collectors and sinners could come to Him.  People like me.

Thank You, Jesus, that there is nothing so shocking that we can do to keep You from saying to us, “Follow Me.”

At The Table

It’s not so much

about who we are
how we look
or what others think

but so much more

about who You are
and what You think
when you look at us.
