I am a sheep.....


I AM A SHEEP, BAA BAA
AND I LIKE TO BE WELL FEB
AND LIKE A SHEEP, BAA BAA
A LITTLE STUPID IN THE HEAD
I GO ASTRAY MOST EVERY DAY
OH WHAT A TROUBLE I MUST BE
I'M GLAD I'VE GOT THE GOOD SHEPHERD
LOOKING AFTER ME - UH-UH BAA BAA

Man - I've had this song going round and round in my head since Friday when I wrote a talk about Jesus being the good shepherd. The thing is, although it is a kids song and a little silly - it does actually sum things up quite well. You see, I am a sheep. Jesus calls us sheep and thats not really the most flattering thing in the world. Sheep are so dumb they can't survive without a shepherd (though they are very cute - loooook!!) I'm very stupid too and I can't survive without God - I stuff things up on a daily basis, but thankfully I have a Good Shepherd who loved me so much he down his life for this sheep - woo! Its also reassuring to know that God knows I am a sheep. Carl (my boss) has been away for the last week and a bit on paternity leave (he's got a little baby - aww!) and I've been feeling the pressure of responsiblity in his absence. I've felt at times completley out of my depth, preparing Bible studies and talks at quite short notice, but I love the fact God looks down on me and says 'Look, Lou - I know you're a sheep - I know you're stupid and can't do this by yourself, but I'm your Good Shepherd - I will lead you, I will help you, follow me.' And He does lead, and he does help, and he does equip. I am a sheep, baa baa.
