Where are The Lost Lambs: Lessons from Samson’s Mother — 11 Comments

  1. What a beautiful and hopeful post, Maryleigh. I depend a lot of Philippians 1:6: “And I am sure of this, that he who began a good work in you will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ.”

    • In Samson’s time there was no evangelism, no one to save the lost. So thankful that Jesus came and taught us how to do that!

    • It is so hard – it’s hard waiting. It’s hard praying selflessly – not results that make my life easier. I am so thankful for these lost lambs who God favored and pursued – they are such encouragement to me, to wait, to pray, to press in to God and trust Him! He’s got our loved ones, Lauren.

    • We should feel every lamb is our lost lamb – not just my own lambs, but my neighbors. Praying God not just break my heart for all the lost lambs in our communities, but to open doors and show us how to reach them! Shalom, Linda – and much blessing in this holy season! ~ Maryleigh
