Yesterday morning I called one of the women who attends my Sunday morning conversation group. She was late, so I wanted to check on if she was coming. She sounded nervous on the phone and communicated with me in Spanish. I had a young man from Honduras, he has the highest level of English in the group, talk with her. We found out she had gotten lost. He left and drove to her, so she could follow him to church.
It was completely understandable why she got lost and why she was nervous. GPS had misdirected her. She has not even lived in my city for one year. She is a single mom from Venezuela doing the best she can to work and take care of her thirteen year old son.
She made it to church thanks to our young friend and we had a good time practicing conversational English. Before she left, I shared with her that she will be okay step by step.
There are times we all feel lost in life and nervous about which way to go. It is comforting to know that Jesus came for those who are lost in life. In Luke 19:10 Jesus said: “For the Son of Man came to seek and to save the lost.”
It is comforting to know that Jesus is the way. He is the way to heaven. He is the way to The Father. He is the way to eternal life. He is also the way for us in this life. He said in John 14:6: “Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.”
Jesus comes to us when we feel lost. He said in John 14:18: “I will not leave you as orphans; I will come to you”
Just as our young friend in my Sunday morning group went to find our friend from Venezuela and guide her safely to church, Jesus will come to us and guide us in life.
Thank you for reading. God Bless.
