Brought Back to the Fold

Brought Back to the Fold

The Lord’s never turned and left me alone,
But there was a time when I drifted away;
Neglecting His Word and the Spirit’s guidance,
I trusted in myself, forgetting to pray.

Every time I struggled in my own efforts
Thinking “my” strength would carry me through,
I stumbled and fell, with no direction at all;
Going ‘round in circles seemed all I could do.

Praise God, He never let me drift very far,
But drew me back with Mercy and Grace.
Back to His Word and back to prayer;
Taking my weakness, His strength to replace.

Praise God I am rescued, brought back to the fold
By the Shepherd who searched for His wandering lamb.
Forgiven and clothed in His own Righteousness
Jesus loves and accepts me just as I am.

Reviving my soul, He gave me new joy;
New purpose and a vision of hope and power.
The desire to bring honor and glory to God
And trust in His Grace every day, every hour.

I must not allow myself to become careless,
Allowing the devil to cause me to stray,
But constantly abide in Jesus, my Savior
And follow His steps as my Light and my Way.

I pray I’ll never again, drift from His side;
Never lose sight of God’s plan for my life.
May I stay in His Word and be faithful in prayer;
Reaching out to others in their sorrow and strife.

very very beautiful Shirley, it really encourages and strengthens a person to never give up. God bless you.
I couldn't live without my Savior.
Thank You Lord for inspiring her and keeping her close to You.

JESUS AND HIS LITTLE LAMB
My precious little lamb
feel the beating of My Heart
full of love, this ain't no spam
I will never let you fall apart

I love you, My little one, always
I hold you so close in My arms
I will never abandon you, no delays
I ask you don't push panic alarms

I have always been with you
surrender your emotions to Me
continue to live in My angle of view
all will be well, listen to My plea

Be at peace, My daughter
I repeat that all IS well
I'm not asking you to slaughter
the lamb in you, this idea I do repel

NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE FOR YOUR GOD

Thank you so much Rita! Your comments and response means a lot to me.
Yes, we all have to pray to the Lord to help us to stay close, to not give up or turn away in the midst of our problems and trials and when temptation come our way, but when it happens, it's so wonderful that the Lord seeks us til He gets us back in the fold.
Love and blessings!!!
