"MY SHEEP HEAR MY VOICE, AND I KNOW THEM, AND THEY FOLLOW ME" The LORD Jesus Christ in John 10:27
One day years ago, I was really upset and mad at God and in the midst of throwing a fit, I fell to the floor in tears, alone in my room.

I knew my attitude was wrong but I was hurting. Then as I realized that God was BIG and I was little - He could pretty much snuff me out like a tiny ant if He wanted - I was convicted of my sin and in brokeness I asked Him to forgive me.

It felt like I had been in a dark cave with no light at all and in fear, I quickly looked around to find a way of escape. Then out of the corner of my eye, I saw a small flicker of a light off to the side. As I turned to the light, it grew brighter. Relieved, I knew this was the way out!

A small still voice within me said, "If you keep your eyes on me, I will bring you into the light, but if you take your eyes off me, you will be groping in the dark with no way out." I knew this was my LORD Jesus Christ speaking to me.

Over the years, like then and now, these words have brought great comfort and encouragement to me. Today, I hope they bless you.

In 1 John 1, the Word of God says, "God is light, and in him is no darkness at all. If we say that we have fellowship with him, and walk in darkness, we lie, and do not the truth: But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin. If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us."
