Five Minute Friday: LOST

Now, set your timer, clear your head, for five minutes of free writing without worrying about getting it right.
Five Minute Friday1. Write for 5 minutes flat – no editing, no over thinking, no backtracking. (On your own blog or in the comments here).
2. Link back here and invite others to join in.
3. And then absolutely, no ifs, ands or buts about it, you need to visit the person who linked up before you & encourage them in their comments. Seriously. That is, like, the rule. And the fun. And the heart of this community..

Lost...and found.
It's the first thing that comes to mind.

There's the big lost - as in, what we're born into.  Lost and unable to find our way to salvation.  Lost and wandering without a clue as to how to bring glory to His name.  Lost and unaware that we need to be found.

Miraculously, He calls us.  He leads us.  He shows us the way.
He provides the Sacrifice needed for salvation.

Once we're found, once we know Salvation - we're not lost anymore.

However, that leads me to the other lost.

The lost feeling that still happens.

The lost feeling that can be darker than anything we have ever known before.

The lost feeling that is scary and frightening.

The lost feeling that makes us feel like we don't know up from down.

The lost feeling that comes from Evil himself.

It is only a feeling.

Nothing can separate us from the love of Christ Jesus.

Once you are found...you can not be lost.

No one can pluck you from His hand.

Yet, feelings can paralyze.

Get up, take your mat, and walk...your sins have been forgiven

Be paralyzed no longer.

the Sacrifice that saved us, cleansed us, forgave us, found us

still does and always will

we can be eternally found

Amazing Grace, how sweet the sound.
