The Shepherd Knows Our Name

My sheep listens to my voice, I know them, and they follow Me. I give them eternal life and they shall never perish; no one will snatch them out of My hand. My Father, who has given them to Me, is greater than all; no man can snatch them out of My Father’s hand. I and My Father are one. (John 10:27-30)

I thank God for never forgetting to watch over His sheep through storms and attacks by the devil’s flaming arrows. As we watch so much wickedness unfolds in the world, our Shepherd eyes are on His sheep.

He knows what we endure, and He allows us some rest on earth. My blood pressure numbers were outstanding for the past three months, and my nephrologist took me off the medication. My primary care physician/advanced registered nurse practitioner downgraded my diabetes diagnosis to prediabetes after implementing lifestyle changes and diet; and I lost some pounds not to be found again.

There are some medical conditions we will bear until we receive the ultimate reward of Heaven. Whatever His reasons for allowing this I am in agreement with Sister Copeland, “My secret is simple, I pray. I trust God. I give Him all the glory.” Amen.

  1. I’m thankful, too, that Jesus knows where His sheep is at all times! It’s good to hear your doctor’s report! Praise the Lord! I read your post on Seasons of Sorrow. It spoke to my heart. I wasn’t able to leave a comment. Not sure why. Have an amazing day!

    1. Hello DeborahMarie, thank you for sharing your comments. Also, WordPress has been making unannounced changes from what I see: Font options changed, finding legitimate comments in Spam, someone else said they cannot comment on certain posts. Thanks for letting me know. Have a blessed day/night and be safe.

  2. Amen. Thankful to God for allowing us to receive medical and nutritional information that we must take care of “Our physical temple” in order to serve God more abundantly, throughout our entire spiritual journey.
