For God, all things are possible; we have heard and read this simple saying many times in our lives. It is when we feel lost that we must grasp this and know that we are safe. Jeremiah says: “Seek and ye shall find.” But Matthew brings this closer to our reality as he writes: “Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you.”
When we feel lost, we are in God’s hands; we cannot escape His loving embrace, for wherever we wander, God is with us; God is within us. I cannot put a number on the times that I have felt lost in my mortal life. At times, it seemed as if I was racing toward a bottomless chasm. When I turn to my spiritual leaders, I am invited to open my heart to the reality that I am always walking in the light of God. Not only that, but God also provides fellowship for me right here on Earth. My family, friends, and neighbors are here to support me when I feel lost.
Being lost is not a permanent state of mind; as I remember that through my faith, I am cleansed of all my sins and all my problems, regardless of how terrible I think they are. I walk on the path shown to me by Jesus, being the good Samaritan to all I meet. I greet you, my readers, whom I may never meet face to face with love and affection. You are my brothers and sisters, and therefore, I am never lost.
