It has been said, “Nothing is really lost until your mom can't find it.” Mom’s have a way of knowing where most everything is or where to find it - a vital cog in the family dynamic. As long a Mom is around it seems that there is NOTHING LOST that can't be found.
Coaches play that same role for a team. Although some teams may seem doomed to losing, a wise coach makes over-achievers out of them by finding their remaining strengths and building on them. In the end they are found worthy of applause for meeting their challenges with heads high and doing their best. Even if there are fewer wins than hoped for, the NOTHING LOST outcome is that they learned the basic skills of life through a sport team which are forever stamped on their hearts.
Our Creator does the same for us. What have you lost and can’t seem to find? Your direction in life? Your sense of worth? Your once-loved ability? We can cry out to our God as the Psalmist David did…
Invigorate my soul so I can praise you well, use your decrees to put iron in my soul. And should I wander off like a lost sheep - seek me! I’ll recognize the sound of your voice. Psalm 119:176 The Message
When all seems lost and the fog of doom surrounds us we are found by the Shepherd of our lives who wants no one to be lost…
‘Celebrate with me! I’ve found my lost sheep!’ Count on it—there’s more joy in heaven over one sinner’s rescued life than over ninety-nine good people in no need of rescue. Luke 15:4 The Message
WE ARE NEVER LOST WHERE JESUS CANNOT FIND US!
