More of a Test Really or The Story of a 'Woolly Headed Christian'

Ok I'll bite... nibble the hook, you might say.  I know the chances of my keeping up with this are proportionate to the chances of people reading this.  Nonetheless I'll give it a go...

Firstly, why wondering sheep?  No, it's not because I'm woolly headed (although Bren might not entirely agree)!  It's because - "All we like sheep have gone astray; We have turned, every one, to his own way; And the LORD has laid on Him the iniquity of us all." - (Isaiah 53:6 NKJV)

There's a story in the Bible about a shepherd that leaves 99 sheep in search of the one that got lost.  Some tasty bit of grass just happened to lure it away.  Well the grass is always greener...

You might say I'm continually that one; I keep drifting off, He keeps bringing me back.  I know this story applies a lot to salvation... but I suppose you might call me a 'woolly headed Christian' He goes that way... I drift over the other way; eyes keenly focused on that tastier bit of grass... Next thing you know - He's over there, I'm over here.  I cry out to Him and He always listens and brings me back to where I should be.  Amazing really.
