Lessons from the Farm....

Sometimes the feed buckets heavy....
but the animals will die if you don't get it to them..

I look out my window and a smile comes to rest on my face.

I see them walking across the yard headed for the chickens.

She's carrying a bucket.

It's heavy for her and yet she keeps on walking. I'm sure it's him saying

"you can do it." Just a few more steps and you'll be there I can hear him whisper.

I've seen this before. She'll finally make it and then the back
door will bang open and she will announce to all how
she did it. No mention of the one who walked beside her.
No remembrance of the words that were
spoken in her ear.
How often I'm like my little girl and how I
forget to give all the glory and honor to my
precious Saviour for every new day
and every breath I take.
Forgetting to thank Him for
the hard days when he walks beside me
and whispers "you can do this."
"Oh Lord, this is heavy. Maybe you've over-estimated
my strength"
He gently reminds me
that indeed He knows what I'm able to carry
and just keep walking.
There's sheep to be fed and they're His sheep
and He expects me to feed them so I can't
Hearing His words in my ear to keep
"picking up" my feed bucket and keep moving......
His sheep are hungry and they might
die if I don't carry my load..

Feed my Sheep.

John 21:15-18
When they had finished eating, Jesus said to Simon Peter, "Simon son of John, do you truly love me more than these?" "Yes, Lord," he said, "you know that I love you." Jesus said, "Feed my lambs."
Again Jesus said, "Simon son of John, do you truly love me?" He answered, "Yes, Lord, you know that I love you." Jesus said, "Take care of my sheep."
The third time he said to him, "Simon son of John, do you love me?" Peter was hurt because Jesus asked him the third time, "Do you love me?" He said, "Lord, you know all things; you know that I love you." Jesus said, "Feed my sheep.
