ONCE WAS LOST BUT NOW AM FOUND

WHAT DOES ONCE WAS LOST BUT NOW AM FOUND MEAN?

ONCE WAS LOST BUT NOW AM FOUND STUDY ON ONCE WAS LOST BUT NOW AM FOUND MEANING WITH ONCE WAS LOST BUT NOW AM FOUND MESSAGE

So, here we are again huh?

Lost in the darkness of our own self induced Spiritual prison.

We have experienced trials and tribulation which have brought forth pain and suffering.

We are hurt ... We are confused ... We are angry ...

We are ... LOST

Yeah, yeah ... I know you.

You are just like me.

But pssssssssssssssssst ...

You have no idea what LOST truly is.
You have no idea what pain and suffering truly are.


But hey ... It is US that is experiencing the discomfort within our soul.

It is US that was hurt.

So, you bet we believe that we are suffering BEYOND the imagination of anyone else.

And you know what we seek first don'cha ...

We are looking for a scape goat ...

Someone to blame ... ANYONE.

Most times it is easy to find someone to blame.

After all ... They DID do something to us.

Or ... There ARE circumstances that sprung forth in our lives beyond our control which were overwhelming.

For example:

Parents divorced.
A loved one died.
I was put up for adoption when I was little.
I was raped by a family member.
I was beat by my spouse.
I was bullied at school.
My spouse left me.
My kid got caught breaking the law.
My co workers and friends constantly gossip about me.
My best friend started dating my ex.
My boss hates me.
We had a miscarriage.
My friend committed suicide.
I got in an another car crash.
My friend is addicted to drugs.
My parent is an alcoholic.
Cancer has struck my family again.
My teen daughter is pregnant.
My family is being evicted.
My friend was killed by a drunk driver.
Our house got robbed. Everything is gone.
I lost my job because of the economy and down sizing.
My spouse is addicted to porn.
I was robbed.
I was raped.
My spouse is having an affair.

OR ...

Maybe it is something that WE did instead of what someone else did.

ONCE WAS LOST BUT NOW AM FOUND WANING ON ONCE WAS LOST BUT NOW AM FOUND DANGERS WITH ONCE WAS LOST BUT NOW AM FOUND TRUTH

Maybe WE created the circumstances that brought on the trials and tribulations that have us in such "anguish" ...

For Example:

I cheated on my spouse.
I hit or even killed someone drinking and driving.
I cut myself even though I know it will upset anyone I show.
I flaked out on my job and got fired.
I gossip about my friends ... which is why I lost them all.
I don't try to see the bright side of things. I would rather have the attention.
I've closed everyone out of my life.
I wear a mask everywhere I go so no one can really see how I feel.
I dress provocatively just to get people to look at me.
I know when I drink too much I do horrible things, but I just don't want to stop drinking.
I cursed God and told Him I hated Him.
I fantasize about someone else other than my spouse.
I had an abortion.
I broke the law.
I am/was involved in witchcraft.
I abused my child.
I hit my spouse.
I was involved in a gang ... and all the things they do.
I robbed someone.

These are just a few examples ...

Maybe your crime or that which was committed against you is not there but ...

At either rate ...

We truly believe that we are TOO far gone to be reached.

We ponder on thoughts such as  ...

Is there really any hope? Or am I as washed up as I think I am? 

It is too late to get help anyway Ö with the way I am.

Most have no clue what I really am deep within. 

Iíve tried to seek people before to help, and no one can seem to help me. 

Besides, why would I want to look for help?

Nothing I have ever tried has helped.

Counselors, Shrinks, Self help books.

NONSENSE !!! 

Iím just TOO screwed up ... I guess. 

All the meds, doctor visits, time spent ďaccepting who I amĒ Ö when I hardly even KNOW who I am, or what the point of my life is supposed to be! 

I do not like who I am !!!

So why should I accept it?

Or maybe you are one of those who are not so far gone ... YET.

We whisper to our self ...

My problems are not that big of a deal.  I know people have it a lot worse than me.  I know sometimes I feel like my problems are overwhelming Ö but why would someone spend time with me and my problems when there are so many others that seem to have it worse.  Even if I canít think of others right now Ö Iím sure others are going through as much pain or more pain than I am.  I donít want to burden anyone with my problems.

I'll just live with em and deal with em myself.

There is nobody to help anyway.

Oh Yeah ... I remember those early days well. 

But wait ... There's more ...

We suddenly begin to seek excuses as to why we should not even try, such as ...

I donít have enough hope. And if I did ... Enough hope for what? Just hoping that I can make it through another day?  I know some people think that you canít get better until you believe you can Ö but many days I really donít believe Iím ever going to get better.  How can things change if deep down I know they just canít? 

Iím too damaged to do anyone any good so why try? 

Iím just passing time everyday awaiting until when I can go back to sleep again. Some days I donít even get up.  Iím just existing.  Iím not even living.  Sometimes I donít want to be around other people because I donít want them to get the negative vibes I give off.  Who wants to be around someone that feels depressed, or hopeless, or shameful, or miserable most of the times? 

Iíve pushed God aside for too long, Heíll never take me back now.  I know people say in the Bible that God has never left Ö but I really do feel sometimes like its just too late.  I already told God I hated Him.  I canít take that back as much as I want to sometimes.  Isnít that the unforgivable sin that keeps me out of heaven anyway?  Iíve hardened my heart too much, now I canít even feel God. 

God allowed me to choose what I wantedÖ now its too late to turn back.  I know we each have free will and I spent too long of my life living for myself.  God just canít Ö forgive and forget that. 

Oh the memories ...
I said the same things ...
 


I remember wondering where God was during all my days of suffering.

Many days I blamed God for how I felt.  I mean seriously Ö if He would just snap His fingers, I could have been better.  God could have prevented all of the trauma and drama in my life from ever happening IF He wanted to.

Some days I think He just doesnít care enough about me to fix it all.

Some days ... I questioned His existence. 

And once we take God out of the equation ...

Then the sorrow within evolves at a more rapid rate as there is now TRULY no hope of a miracle healing ...

More whispers echo within, and our thought process becomes dependent on the depressive state of mind and heart we have CHOSEN to place ourselves within whether we made the choice consciously or not.

Then comes the denial stage ...

I don't think I needed any help Ö or I just don't WANT the help is a better way to put it.  
God was not in the picture because I didnít think He cared. 
God doesnít have time for me and I donít have time for Him. 
Besides Ö you have no idea what I did in my past. I can hardly forgive myself Ö so how would GOD ever be able to forgive me? IF there was a God. 

I remember the doubt growing within me too.

You know Ö I almost felt more powerful or stronger when I just tried to convince myself that I didnít need God or counseling or help of any kind. Iím not sure why really Ö it just made me feel better thinking that bad things just happen and that is they way it is and no far off deity could come and make it all better.

Maybe I liked the independence.

Funny thing tho ...

Yet, at the same time I depended on others to pity my misery. 

Complaining about our problems is so much easier than getting help is it not? I suppose that part of me likes the attention I get. People donít really pay attention if you arenít in pain or they canít pity you. 

And even if they do, it only lasts a while and you have to find others to pity you cuz the ones that were listening, start disappearing. Like they thought it would never end so they bailed.

Does it ever end though?

I never tried to help myself. I mean, sure, I went to therapy and stuff sometimes, but Ö I was wanting THEM to fix me without me putting much effort into it. I didnít really want any oneís help anyway Ö usually it would lead to some kind of hurt I would have to avoid dealing with later. 

I was sick of the hurt ... But accepting it became easier than fighting it.

No one would ever really understand what Iím really going through anyway. 

So why bother? 
 

Yes, that's right ... I fed the fire with the CHOICE to harbor those thoughts.

Iím in so much more pain today. Because of my choices.  
 

 I was too stubborn to reach for God and get help and then started doubting He even existed. 

I didnít want people to bother me with the nonsense of Christianity or bother me with the foolishness that I will go to hell if I donít believe in Jesus. 
 
 

Oh yeah Ö How rude of me.

I suppose this would be a good time to introduce myself.
