There was a very difficult period in my life when I felt so incredibly lost and lonely and I didn’t know which direction to turn.
I was suffering from acute anxiety that was crippling me in areas of my everyday life.
To look at me I was the picture of health but inside I was a mess and completely lost.
It wasn’t until I accepted Jesus as my Lord and Saviour that I truly discovered who I was and ‘found myself’ and found fulfillment in Him.
Jesus desired for me to know Him in the same way that He knew me.
Below are lyrics to part of the chorus of the song ‘Know you’:
I was lost but you came to find me
Leaving the many you would come to draw me back to you
I was empty but you came and filled me
In love you opened up my eyes that I would know you
The song is based on the parable of ‘The lost sheep’ found in Matthew 18:12-14 and Luke 15:3-7.
Jesus clearly shows us that He is the shepherd that would do anything to find and bring back a lost sheep, even if it meant leaving the ninety-nine others in the hope of drawing that one sheep back to him.
He would even lay down his life for the sake of that one lost sheep.
Even if you were the only one person left on earth, Jesus would still choose to die on a cross, just for you.
That is how much he loves you and me.
Not only does God save us a VIP seat at the front before his feet but he also calls us by name to come to Him.
Jesus leaves the many, searches for us when we are amidst our darkest moments, takes us by the hand and rescues us from our loneliness and emptiness.
If you are feeling lost and lonely right now and are in need of help, comfort and love; Jesus is calling your name and reaching out to you.
Accept his invitation of love and find rest and peace in his arms of love and forgiveness.
There is absolutely nothing that can separate you from God’s amazing love and no amount of hurt, distress or anxiety is too difficult for him to deal with.
God has a plan to prosper you and he has a future of hope mapped out for you.
Will you allow Jesus to open your eyes so you would know him and be restored?
