On Being Lost

And you’ll feel lost sometimes. Maybe you won’t even want to be found, or maybe you’ll fight with your whole being to be found, to be seen, to be loved, to be wanted.

Maybe we want the fairy tale to be true. Maybe it is. Maybe eventually, the prince gets the girl in the soft light of an autumn moon. But-

There’s always the chance that the prince doesn’t come home from the war he was supposed to win. There’s always the chance the ribbon doesn’t get tied.

Thankfully no matter what, we have this promise: Psalm 90:4 – “He will cover you with his feathers and under his wings you will find refuge; his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart.”

At the end of the day, we want to know that when we screw up there will be someone to comfort us and help us through the difficulties. We want to know that we’re not alone. We want to know that what we’re doing means something. We want to believe in a hope that we can cling to. We want to know that there’s more. We want to see the bigger picture.

We want to know that it will be okay. We want to be found.

Don’t worry

; your story isn’t over yet.
