One definition in the dictionary defines sheep as, "a meek or timid person, esp one without initiative." It is difficult for me to swallow this definition as I find it filled with negative connotations. Especially when I myself am praying for a change in character. I long to be a sheep. I find in myself, as always a constant struggle for power.
I like to control my life yet need to learn to let go. I feel that if I can let loose a little I may be able to enjoy the little moments more. I also believe that things are brought into our lives and revealed to us when we let what will be, be. Here's to the sheep in all of us. The Lord's sheep and learning to live a "meek" or at the very least, "meek-er" life.
