Hey there, friend! Welcome to Sheep Once Silenced (SOS)!
SOS is defined as “a call or request for help or rescue”. If you wound up here, you may have a deep urgency to call for help when it comes to learning about Jesus and His word! Historically, SOS was used as an abbreviation for ‘Save our soul’, to signal distress, when using the radio ‘Morse Code’. Here at the SOS blog, I implore you to urgently call out to Jesus. He is the only One who can truly save our soul!
So, where did the name for this blog originate? My name, Rachael, is Hebrew for ‘ewe’- or otherwise known as a female sheep. The Bible often refers to humankind as sheep and Jesus as our Shepherd. Oh, how I love that correlation!
I am a sheep who seeks and listens to her Shepherd’s voice. I blog to share of my personal experiences and correlate them to lessons I’ve learned from biblical principles. I wanted to offer a haven for readers to share their voice. I encourage people who are silent to speak against their inner persecutions.
You, too, are Christ’s sheep and you no longer have to be silenced! I want you to confide in this community of readers or myself. May you be inspired to ask for prayer as needed, when needed. But most importantly of all, I encourage you to receive Jesus as your Savior, and to call upon Him for your help and rescue.
“My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me.”- John 10:27 (NLT)
