Jesus Said “Feed My Sheep”

This picture dropped out of an old photo album while going through our storage of stuff. I forgot all about it and got a kick out of how I could relate it to this poem I came across and the pictures and scriptures below. It’s of me at a family friends ranch in the Summer of 1959.

FEED MY SHEEP

SHEPHERD, show me how to goโ€‚
O’er the hillside steep,
How to gather, how to sow, โ€ƒ
How to feed Thy sheep;
I will listen for Thy voice,โ€ƒ
Lest my footsteps stray;
I will follow and rejoiceโ€ƒ
All the rugged way.

Thou wilt bind the stubborn will,โ€ƒ
Wound the callous breast,
Make self-righteousness be still,โ€ƒ
Break earth’s stupid rest.
Strangers on a barren shore,โ€ƒ
Lab’ring long and lone,
We would enter by the door,โ€ƒ
And Thou know’st Thine own.

So, when day grows dark and cold,โ€ƒ
Tear or triumph harms,
Lead Thy lambkins to the fold,โ€ƒ
Take them in Thine arms;
Feed the hungry, heal the heart.โ€ƒ
Till the morning’s beam;
White as wool, ere they depart,โ€ƒ
Shepherd, wash them clean.

Mary Baker Eddy

So Jesus told them this story:ย โ€œIf a man has a hundred sheep and one of them gets lost, what will he do? Wonโ€™t he leave the ninety-nine others in the wilderness and go to search for the one that is lost until he finds it?ย ย  Luke 15:4

๐ŸŒฟ๐ŸŒฟ๐ŸŒฟ๐ŸŒฟ๐ŸŒฟ๐ŸŒฟ๐ŸŒฟ๐ŸŒฟ๐ŸŒฟ๐ŸŒฟ๐ŸŒฟ๐ŸŒฟ๐ŸŒฟ

โ€œHe shall feed his flock like a shepherd: he shall gather the lambs with his arm, and carry them in his bosom, and shall gently lead those that are with young.โ€ Isaiah 40:11

This conversation took place at Tiberius (Lake Galilee), after Jesus had risen from the dead. Peter and other disciples were fishing. Jesus appeared, caused their nets to be filled, and invited them to add some fish to the breakfast he was cooking.
My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me: And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand. John 10:2728

My Redeemer Lives

The lyrics of this song that is sung by Nicole C. Mullen, rejoice in the life of Jesus Christ, and the salvation He gives to mankind. He lives, all glory to His name!

For I know that my redeemer liveth, and that he shall stand at the latter day upon the earth: Job 19:25

My lips shall greatly rejoice when I sing unto thee; and my soul, which thou hast redeemed.   Psalm 71:23

And they remembered that God was their rock, and the high God their redeemer.   Psalm 78:35

In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of His grace. Ephesians 1:7

Thus saith the Lord the King of Israel, and his redeemer the Lord of hosts; I am the first, and I am the last; and beside me there is no God. Isaiah 44:6

You Will Never Walk Alone

Never think you’re all alone,

for Jesus loves us, this He’s shown;

Although we may be far apart,

we know we’re in each other’s heart.

So when we lift each one in prayer,

we know that Jesus will be there.

The Glory of God

OMNIPRESENCE

Our God outside of time and space

He’s all around and in His place,

Soon we’ll meet You face to face;

God of mercy, full of grace.

The Heavens declare the Glory of God and the firmament sheweth His handiwork. Day unto day uttereth speech, and night unto night sheweth knowledge. There is no speech nor language, where their voice is not heard. Psalm 19:1-3

But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him.
1 Corinthians 2:9

Father God, I ask You to bless all those who visit this blog. Please lead them and guide them, protect them, and heal them. I ask that You refresh and strengthen them, and keep them on the path of righteousness for your names sake. In Jesus name I pray, thank You Father, Amen.

Bread of Life

Then Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Moses gave you not that bread from heaven; but my Father giveth you the true bread from heaven. John 6:32

Bread of Life, Son of man,

You are the only one who can,

Fill our lives with hope and love,

That You send down from up above.

Living Water, flowing free,

Into our lives for us to see,

Your Truth and Wisdom from above,

Poured into us with all Your Love.

Behold, God is my salvation; I will trust, and not be afraid: for the LORD JEHOVAH is my strength and my song; he also is become my salvation. Isaiah 12:2

Prince of Peace, begotten Son,

We know You are the only one,

Born from above, O Son of man,

To save lost souls, the Fathers plan.

 And he spake this parable unto them, saying,
What man of you, having an hundred sheep, if he lose one of them, doth not leave the ninety and nine in the wilderness, and go after that which is lost, until he find it?
Luke 15:3-4

๐Ÿƒ๐ŸŒพ๐Ÿƒ๐ŸŒพ๐ŸŒพ๐Ÿƒ๐ŸŒพ๐Ÿƒ๐ŸŒพ๐ŸŒพ๐Ÿƒ๐ŸŒพ๐Ÿƒ๐ŸŒพ๐ŸŒพ

For the Son of man is come to save that which is lost. (Matthew 18:11)

When the Son of man shall come in His glory, and all the Holy angels with Him, then shall He sit upon the throne of His glory.  (Matthew 25:31)

A LOVE THAT SHALL NOT FADE

An end of age before us,

Bittersweet we all do know;

Creation groans around us,

A lost world we need to show;

That Godโ€™s Love is always for them,

And by faith they too can see;

That Jesus is their Saviour

And with Him theyโ€™ll always be.

He offers them Salvation,

With His life He truly paid;

The Blood that He shed for them,

With a Love that shall not fade.

For we know that the whole creation groaneth and travaileth in pain until now. (Romans 8:22)

For the Son of man is come to seek and to save that which was lost. (Luke 19:10)

But now in Christ Jesus ye who sometimes were far off are made nigh by the blood of Christ. (Ephesians 2:13)

And we have seen and do testify that the Father sent the Son to be the Saviour of the world. (1 John 4:14)

And now abideth faith, hope, love, these three; but the greatest of these is love. (1 Corinthians 13:13)

BLESS GOD AND HE WILL ALWAYS BLESS YOU….. HE TAKES CARE OF HIS OWN .

A Song of Praise

A morning prayer of praise, a great way to start your days

Lord I lift you up,
I will lift you up on high;
I will praise You with my mouth,
And Your Name Iโ€™ll magnify.

Lord I lift you up,
I will sing Your Name in praise;
I will bless You with my soul,
In Your presence through my days

Thereforeโ€ฆ.

Because of Who You are,
And who I am in You;
We will walk this path together,
And each day youโ€™ll see me through.

Because of Who You are
I will trust you all my days;
And because Your Word is true,
I will worship You in praise.

Amen

O magnify the Lord with me, and let us exalt his name together. (Psalm 34:3)

And Mary said, My soul doth magnify the Lord,

And my spirit hath rejoiced in God my Saviour.

For he hath regarded the low estate of his handmaiden: for, behold, from henceforth all generations shall call me blessed.

For he that is mighty hath done to me great things; and holy is his name.

And his mercy is on them that fear him from generation to generation. Luke 1:46-50

Fearfully and Wonderfully Made

In my motherโ€™s womb, You knit me with your hands,

And brought me in this world for Your purpose and Your plans;

To teach me and instruct me in the way which I should go,

And filled me with Your Word, and for this to You I owe.

Thus saith the LORD, thy redeemer, and he that formed thee from the womb, I am the LORD that maketh all things; that stretcheth forth the heavens alone; that spreadeth abroad the earth by myself; (Isaiah 44:24) 

I will instruct thee and teach thee in the way which thou shalt go: I will guide thee with mine eye. (Psalms 32:8)  

O LORD, how great are thy works! and thy thoughts are very deep. (Psalms 92:5)

I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvelous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well. (Psalms 139:14)
