One of the most difficult aspects of writing regular acrostics is finding new subject matter. Fortunately, a couple of days ago Angela Umphers Rueger (The Abundant Heart) posted a great blog about Jesus the Shepherd, which helped me not only spiritually, but also to get over writer’s block
If you have any ideas for an acrostic, please email me or leave a comment and I’ll do my best to respond.
Sheep are wayward creatures, always wandering astray
Humankind is much the same, it’s in our DNA;
Ever envying, ever hankering after greener
Pastures – discontent is part of our demeanour.
Hirelings cannot save us, they’ll quickly run amok
Every time a ravening wolf threatens the flock.
Remember Jesus is The Gate, for both Gentile and Jew:
Didn’t he leave the ninety-nine, just to search for you?
