Scripture describes my Shepherd as one who would leave 99 safe, healthy sheep to go after one in trouble.

I am that one.

I am the one who needs to be rescued. Every. Single. Day.

I am the one the Shepherd pursues even at his own peril. For the sake of fellowship.

Imagine that! He wants a relationship with someone like me.

No – not someone like me, with me. I really am the one!

The realization of such truth blows up my mind. Explodes my heart. Alters every aspect of my existence.

I was never the one I thought I was; I have always been the one he pursues. So, so much better!
