Jeremiahs Menu-strays-ReggieEach previously without a home… wandering with no place to stay… previously lost… but now they’re found…

Petting the first arrival purring in my lap… I remember… I was once the same…

Lost… wandering… a spiritual stray…

But He took me in… He showed me mercy… grace with abundance…

Unlike we… who received strays with reluctance…

We didn’t seek them… they found us…

In contrast… He sought me… and all those who are His… out of love… mercy…

We took in out of mercy… love (mostly?) followed…

I find myself humbled by these pets and the reminder they give… I’m His… no longer a stray…

Once you were not a people, but now you are God’s people; once you had not received mercy, but now you have received mercy.

1Peter 2:10 ESV
