“Moment By Moment”

Jn. 10:27-30/“My sheep listen to my voice.  I know them and they follow me.”Jn. 10:1-10 “I have come that they may have life, life in all of its fullness.”

Yesterday I woke up and was really uptight and angry. I feel sometimes like a square that does not fit into a round hole, and like people simply have trouble dealing with me, and I am difficult.  I did not like myself very much.  I took the bus to Sacramento and stayed on the “Delta King”==it put things into context getting out of the City.  The way I follow Jesus is not the most popular way–but it is my calling–I hear his voice each time I look into the face of shaggy looking kid, give him my time, a pair of socks, some clean needles and for me it is all worth it.  This morning the Scripture reminds me that we are not here for our own sake–we have a responsibility to continue the work of Jesus-to care for others as God cares for us–to keep alive the fire of faith in ourselves.  It is always for me moment by moment.  Deo Gratias! Thanks be to God!
