By His Wounds You Have Been Healed

He himself bore our sins in his body on the tree, so that we might die to sins and live for righteousness; by his wounds you have been healed. For you were like sheep going astray, but now you have returned to the Shepherd and Overseer of your souls. (1 Peter 2:24-25)

My baby sheep, I love you and take care of you like a Good Shepherd. You once were lost, but now you are found. You wandered away from the fold, but now you have returned to me. In your wandering your story developed. Though you suffered wounds, I healed those wounds. I suffered on a tree so that you might die to sin and live for me. I turned your ashes into beauty. I am the Overseer of your soul. You may now live in righteousness because you have been healed by my wounds. I died for you. Will you now live for me?

Plumb – Need You Now (How Many Times) Lyrics

Well, everybody’s got a story to tell

And everybody’s got a wound to be healed

I want to believe there’s beauty here

So, I guess you’re tired of holding on

I can’t let go, I can’t move on

I want to believe there’s meaning here

How many times have you heard me cry out

“God please take this”?

How many times have you given me strength to

Just keep breathing?

Oh I need you God, I need you now.

Standing on a road I didn’t plan

Wondering how I got to where I am

I’m trying to hear that still small voice

I’m trying to hear above the noise

How many times have you heard me cry out

“God please take this”?

How many times have you given me strength to

Just keep breathing?

Oh I need you God, I need you now.

Though I walk, Though I walk through the shadows

And I, I am so afraid

Please stay, please stay right beside me

With every single step I take

How many times have you heard me cry out?

And how many times have you given me strength?

How many times have you heard me cry out

“God please take this”?

How many times have you given me strength to

Just keep breathing?

Oh I need you God, I need you now. I need you now

Oh I need you God, I need you now. I need you now

I need you now

I Will Not Lead You Astray

See link to Greg Olsen’s “Take My Hand” artwork on my Facebook page.

“The man who enters by the gate is the shepherd of his sheep. The watchman opens the gate for him, and the sheep listen to his voice. He calls his own sheep by name and leads them out. When he has brought out all his own, he goes on ahead of them, and his sheep follow him because they know his voice.” (John 10:2-4)

Good morning, my child. I am the good shepherd. I look after my sheep. I call them each by name, and they follow me because they know my voice. You are my sheep; you know my voice. Listen to me. I will not lead you astray. Let me go ahead of you and prepare the way for you. Follow me wherever I lead you. I will remove the obstacles that impede your travel. I will clear the path and mark out the best way for you to go. The road is narrow that leads to life. All other roads lead to destruction. I want the best for you. I will lead you on the path of life. I never said it would be easy. Truly, it will be worth any hardships you have to endure. Remember, I am with you always. You never walk alone. Take my hand. We’ll travel this journey together. You are my precious child. I know you by name.
