“I have other sheep who are not of this fold.” — Jesus
Welcome to OtherSheep.net. Let me explain why this blog is here.
I’ve been on this path for over 40 years. And 30 or so years ago I pretty much had it all figured out. Not any more.
Today I struggle… with the darkness of loneliness, the questions of issues I just can’t reconcile, the dangers of temptations I thought I’d overcome, and the “what-if” doubts that enter my mind despite my best efforts to keep them at bay. Sometimes I feel that I’m not quite as good as the happy people with the “Smile – God Loves You” bumper stickers.
Then I hear the words of Jesus: ”I have other sheep who are not of this fold.” Truth is, I’ve felt like one of those “others” for a very long time. And maybe that’s not so bad. In fact, I have a suspicion that there are a lot of us out there… and in here… in THIS sheep-pen where the Good Shepherd also lays down His life.
So I share – perhaps from a different perspective – in the hope that we will find each other as we find and follow Him.
