When you feel lost...


Lord Jesus,

You've never been lost, have you?

But maybe, in your human moments, 

you felt adrift, hopeless, or lost.

You're both a shepherd and a lamb.

So maybe it's possible you understand how I feel.

I feel lost.

I want your will in my life, but I feel incapable of understanding it.

I want your calling on my life, but I feel unable to practice it.

I want your blessing on my life, but I feel overlooked in receiving it.

I want your power in my life, but I feel unable to access it.

I just feel lost.

Come after me.

Search me out 

because I want to be found.

I'm yours, and I want to feel your presence.

Come find me where I hide

because I'm too weak to move towards you.

But your love is reckless and boundless.

You fight for me,

look for me,

and always find me.

Lord Jesus, find me now!

Wrap your Shepherd's arms around me and carry me home.

Reassure me that you care,

that I matter,

and that you will always accomplish your will in my life, 

if I let you.

Drown out the dark voices in my head that tell me 

I'm not worthy

and life won't get any better than this.

I cling to you.

Carry me through this difficult time in my life.

I trust you.

Oh, Lord, help me to trust you.

In your precious name,


Listen/watch this song "Reckless Love" by Cory Ashbury.

“‘My son,’ the father said, ‘you are always with me, and everything I have is yours. But we had to celebrate and be glad, because this brother of yours was dead and is alive again; he was lost and is found.’” (Luke 15:31-32)
