Lost and Found

LA_City_Hall_with_sister_cities~ There are those who are lost – this is everyone who does not know God. It is the default setting into which we are born in.

And then…

There are those who are lost among the lost. All I can see is that there are people who I have met in life who are just so going left and right, up and down, indecisive, flitting from one thing to another… confusion central … life is a mess.

Then there are the found… the found meaning found by God. Found in God. Those who live by faith and have their compasses ever pointing heavenward are never lost. They always have direction.

Then there are the lost among the found … This could be due to sin… it could just be due to being hit hard by the rough and tumble of life, such that they find themselves perplexed, confused, lost… I think of Job or Paul… These are the lost among the found. Lost yet found.

Lost: ” …We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, – ”
Yet Found: “- but not in despair; ~ 2 Cor. 4:8
