Sometimes I get lost. I become distracted by the people around me saying that I should act a certain way, dress a certain way, talk a certain way. They point and laugh at me. Sometimes I let it get to me. I get distracted by all the pretty disguises being used by all the things that I shouldn't do. Sometimes I fall victim to the things that this world says are ok. I lose sight of the Lord for a split second and suddenly I'm doomed.
Sometimes I get lost. I stray away from the narrow road and fall into the canyon surrounding it. I worry about the Lord's plan for my life and I don't know where to go, what to do. I get confused because once things get hard, I try to do it all on my own. It's like my brain is programed to think that I have to do it all alone. I start traveling in circles because I'm misguided, misdirected when I stray afar. And suddenly, I don't know which direction to walk in.
Sometimes I get lost. I get lost because I become a player in the world's game. A game that leaves no room for God. I get lost because I wander away from my loving Lord's arms. I run head first into the troubles left in this world without my compass to lead me out. I get lost because I am a sinner. I am not perfect and sometimes I walk away from God when I need Him most. We all do it.
We'll be going strong all day long, but once night hits and things get hard...we lose sight of it all. This is when we fall victim to giving up, giving in. This is when we need to turn to God, but instead find ourselves turning to something entirely different.
So I don't really know where I was going with this, but I do know one thing for sure. It's in times like what I've described above that I need to hear one thing. I need to be reminded of thing more than I need anything else. In times like that, I need to know that God's arms are always open. He's always waiting for us to come back to Him. He's not going to force us to stay, but He'll always be waiting. He never gives up on us. He's got a plan for our lives and will guide us through it all if only we would let him.
