As a Sheep Before its Shearer

Lessons From the Flock – #2

We have recently finished shearing our sheep here on the farm. We had three shearers working, and ended up shearing 5,321 sheep altogether. During the entire fortnight of shearing, there were only two sheep that made any noise as they were shorn. Scripture states truly that “a sheep before its shearers is silent” (Isaiah 53:7).

My Journey to Torah

I have been asked from time to time about my journey into the Torah way of life. As you will see, the journey has been more of a slow progression rather than a drastic, overnight change. Perhaps this was YHWH’s will for us all along, or perhaps it is more a reflection upon me as someone slow to trust. Either way, may this be a testimony to YHWH’s goodness in opening eyes that were once blinded to these things.

Don’t be Shaken

To state the obvious, we’re living in a strange world at the moment! In fact, the events that we’re seeing on a global level are unprecedented, in my opinion. On top of the pandemic situation, we have an economic disaster looming – one that is going to produce world-wide change in many areas of our lives. We also see political unrest in many regions, and increasing tensions between nations that could someday erupt in all-out war.

Passover Lockdown

It’s lockdown time! Many countries right across the world are in a “lockdown”, with others deciding whether they should follow. It’s a huge change for everyone involved as the draconian measures enforce people to stay within their own private boundaries. With all of this going on, it’s fascinating that we have the Passover season almost upon us. Perhaps there’s some lessons for us at this time and hour.

Self Isolation

Do you have any of the COVID-19 symptoms? A cough, a fever or shortness of breath? Are you being told that you need to self isolate? Perhaps you’re feeling fine and you’re happy just to continue life as usual. But it may be a good time to reconsider! I think there’s something our Messiah can teach us about this.

The Forgotten Box

Edwin stumbled into his house at the end of the most heart-wrenching morning of his life. As he flicked on the lights, he still couldn’t quite believe what had taken place – it all seemed like a hazy dream where everything was totally out of his control.

When We Grieve

My brother passed away this month …

It makes life look different somehow.  There’s a hollowness to it that is hard to ignore.  Of course, I realise that I’m not the first one to experience this and I certainly won’t be the last.
