We are country dwellers and stray dogs and cats are frequently showing up at our door; we kept a beautiful white female cat, who I named "Frosty." Our home is in the midst of wheat fields and Frosty has proven to be an excellent mouser as she roams the fields and wooded areas. I witnessed her making a return-trip one day last week. As I stood at my kitchen sink and glanced out the window, I saw her running from the woods across a furrowed field, towards our house. The sight was a "Kodak moment;" the contrast of dazzling white fur above freshly tilled soil caught my eye; her determination to return to her home captured my heart.
My spirit anticipates a trip home; I know the Lord Jesus will meet me and believe His promises of preparing a place especially for me. I strayed from His flock was lost and hurting; He rescued me, placed me in a green pasture, provided food from His storehouse and healed my wounds. I have the opportunity to work in His fields and to pray for others to join in His harvesting. The field is at my door and I need not be blind to the white that surrounds me. "Behold, I say to you, lift up your eyes, and look on the fields, that they are white for the harvest (John 4:35b NAS)." The Lord wants to gather in the strays; He is the keeper of the flock!
