I once was lost, wandering aimlessly through the valleys of my brokenness. I was just one of the countless souls, lost in the wilderness of life. But then, a ray of light pierced through the darkness, and my life was forever changed.
In the midst of my despair, Jesus left the safety of the 99, the flock that was secure, to come after me. Me, just one lost sheep, struggling to find my way back to the fold. It is a love beyond comprehension, a love that knows no bounds.
He saw my brokenness, my pain, and my struggles. He saw the tears that stained my face and the heaviness that burdened my heart. And with infinite compassion, He reached out His hand and said, 'You are not forgotten. You are not alone.'
He left behind the comfort of the familiar, the security of the known, to pursue me relentlessly. His love defied all logic and understanding. He risked everything to rescue me, to bring me back into His loving embrace.
When I think of His sacrifice, His relentless pursuit, I am overwhelmed with gratitude. How could someone love me, a mere speck in the vastness of the world, so deeply and unconditionally? It is a love that surpasses all human understanding.
In His arms, I found solace. In His presence, I found peace. He healed my wounds, restored my brokenness, and gave me hope. I am no longer lost, for I have been found by the Shepherd who never gives up on His sheep.
Today, I stand as a testament to the unfathomable love of Jesus. I am a living proof of His grace and mercy. He left the 99 for me, and for that, I am forever grateful.
So, if you ever feel lost, abandoned, or forgotten, remember this: Jesus is searching for you. He will leave the 99 to find you, to bring you back into His loving arms. You are never too far gone, never too broken, for His love knows no limits.
Let the truth of His pursuit and love wash over you. Embrace the freedom and restoration that comes from being found by the One who gave everything for you. You are cherished, valued, and loved beyond measure. Jesus left the 99 for you.
