V 25 For you were straying like sheep, but have now returned to the Shepherd and Overseer of your soul
Although I know that once we are “in” God’s flock we can’t truly “stray”; yet, I find myself battling to stay within the flock. I constantly feel like I have to fight my “self” to stay. Which is ludicrous I know. The shepherd holds me. I can’t help but think of Paul in times like this when he said that he constantly battled between what he knew to do and what his flesh wanted to do. How wonderful a day it will be when we no longer have to battle, when we can just rest with our Shepherd?
