Many times you are hard pressed by the realities of life, but that pressure is meant to supple your souls for Love. You are already enclosed in that Love having only to come to see it in the very things that are fearful and the hardships that weigh heavily upon you.
Jesus, Lamb of God, comes down to enter our sheepfold - the Lamb of sacrifice - and in His entering He makes all our sacrifice sacrificial, redemptive, pure as His own. We no longer stumble through life as beasts, we live, as lambs in Him. And as well as Lamb, He is Shepherd, enclosing us in the sweet warmth of the Father's Home, which is not only "in heaven" but here because of Jesus . . . .
