I had an extra-ordinary expericence of God’s Grace. I was around 5 or 6. Out of the corner of my eye I caught a glimpse of the figure of Jesus outside my bedroom window. I felt a presence looking upon me. At the time I was staring at the books on my book shelf and it was early morning. As you do when you are aware of someone looking at you, I turned to face the window but He had gone. I felt a tingle of excitement mixed with fear. I pushed the experience to the back of my mind. However it was an important experience to me. It reminded me that I am not alone. Jesus is my friend and He is beside me all the way. I may have been His lost sheep but everytime I went missing The Good Shepherd brought me back to His fold.
I lift up my eyes to the hills,
From whence does my help come?
My help comes from the Lord,
who has made heaven and earth.
He will not let your foot be moved.
He who keeps you will not slumber.
Behold, he who keeps Israel will neither slumber nor sleep.
The Lord is your keeper: the Lord is your shade on your right hand.
The sun shall not smite you by day, nor the moon by night.
The Lord will keep you from evil, he will keep your life.
The Lord will keep your going out and your coming in, from this time forth, and for evermore.
