Have you ever felt lost in life?

What should we do when we feel lost and lonely?

First, I want you to know that we are never lost, we just think we are. It is okay and completely natural to feel this way at certain points in our lives. I’d say it is a human trait, it is what makes us human. You never see a lion or bear feeling lost in life, not even a goldfish. They just are present in their habitat. Not us humans we need to overanalyze Everything.

Why does this happen to us? This happens because there are so many things our worldly side wants to understand that are just not of worldly things, they are of spiritual things. There is so much we do not understand about our life and God’s creation, but we try. (1 Corinthians 2:14)

Look, we are not God and there are things He is working through behind the scenes of our lives that we just do not understand. This is why He wants us to just trust Him.

Sometimes we have to struggle so that we can be strengthened. This way we can help other people around us. Sometimes we need to experience a loss so that we can overcome it and then encourage others to overcome it as well. There is always a purpose for your pain. God believes you can do it and His promise is to help you. “Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.” -Hebrews 13:5

Remember the story of Joseph who was favored by his father and was given a coat of many colors? His brothers were so jealous of him and sold him into slavery when he was just 17 years old! He ends up in prison, and much later in life, by God’s divine purpose, he becomes second in charge in Egypt, then went on to deliver his whole family from famine and death. When his brothers finally noticed who he was, he told them, “You meant it for bad, but God meant it for Good!” Wow, what a great attitude. I don’t know if I would have handled it so well. Read: Genesis chapter 37 – 45.

The human side of us, the conscious mind aka our ego side that has to be right, needs to make logical sense of things, even the things it cannot understand because they are spiritual. Our subconscious mind is spiritual, intuitive, and creative. It is the flow of our energetic Being. This is why meditation and rest are so important. This is where we feel His Spirit whispering to our hearts. “Be still and know that I am God” -Psalm 46:10

It is through dreams and times of silence or meditation that God would reveal things to his prophets, and I believe it is in the silence that He talks with our spirit as well. We just need to quiet the mental chatter and sit in silence for a few moments, while feeling gratitude for His Love, to feel the peace that surpasses human understanding. We can pray to Him and feel his presence in our heartbeat and breathe because they are given by Him.

If you are feeling overwhelmed and lost in life it is probably because your mind is talking too much, overanalyzing, judging, and telling you things are not the way they should be. This means you need to slow down for a minute and just breathe, get present in this exact moment, and tell God you may not understand the way things are at this moment, but you trust Him, and let His peace fill your heart. I promise He Loves you So much! In fact, He thinks You Are to Die For.

God wants to turn your pain into purpose, your mess into a message, and turn you from lost into found. Just trust Him. Right here, right now, just close your eyes take a deep breath, exhale, and say in your heart, “I Trust You Lord.” and feel His peace now.
