It’s okay to feel a little lost.
Maybe you have been doing the hard work, keeping your head down and getting things done. You look up, and you just feel… a little out of place. You can’t really explain it, you just… sort of… drifted…
You feel a little…
It’s okay to feel a little out of place. It’s okay to feel a little lost.
However, in your lost-nees, don’t forget Jesus is with you.
“Therefore the Lord himself will give you a sign. Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel.” (Isaiah 7:14, ESV)
Immanuel is an Old Testament name for Jesus meaning ‘God with us.’
The incarnation, God putting on flesh, walking through the dust. God put on flesh. God came near.
God is with you, and just because God is silent does not mean that God is absent. God never sleeps. He is always on duty. You are never out of His sight. He holds you in the palm of His hand. You are His. You are loved. You will never be forgotten. You are never alone. You are engraved on the palms of His hands.
So when you feel a little lost, remember:
God will never forsake you.
“Keep your life free from love of money, and be content with what you have, for he has said, “I will never leave you nor forsake you.”” (Hebrews 13:5, ESV)
God dwells with his people.
“What agreement has the temple of God with idols? For we are the temple of the living God; as God said, “I will make my dwelling among them and walk among them, and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.” (2 Corinthians 6:16, ESV)
Christ lives in you.
“I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.” (Galatians 2:20, ESV)
The Spirit dwells in you.
“even the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees him nor knows him. You know him, for he dwells with you and will be in you.” (John 14:17, ESV)
You are loved.
You are not alone, even if you feel a little lost at times.
