Feed My sheep

Do you mean to tell me that I didn't have a single insight during January?
OK so I'll start again  now.

It was late in the afternoon and Jesus was teaching people. The disciples came to Him and said, "Let the people go home to get something to eat." Jesus said, "You feed them." Then follows the familiar story of the five loaves and two fish - the lunch of a little boy. Jesus miraculously multiplied the lunch and the disciples used it to feed not only all who were there, but to provide left-overs.

Similarly, there have been several times in my life when I have prayed for Jesus to send someone along side to care for a friend of mine and the Lord has said, "You care for her."

During my mother's last two months of life in a convalescent hospital, she had a roommate named Dora. Although I was there to care for my mother, I did form a relationship with Dora. When Mother died, I prayed that God would send someone to minister to Dora. He clearly impressed on my mind, "You minister to her."

Mother died in December. Dora died in late spring. During those few months Dora and I talked, took rides together to get ice cream cones, and read the Bible which she loved. I was with Dora when she left this life to meet her Savior in heaven.

Jesus said to Peter, "Do you love me?" Peter answered, "You know I love you, Lord." And Jesus said, "Feed my sheep."

Insightfully yours,
