What is a Lost Soul?

I Once Was Lost But Now Am Found Meaning

Pssssssssssssssssst ... Come walk and talk with me. I need to show you something that is so very important. I want to share with you the true Spiritual essence of the, I once was lost but now am found meaning. To be a lost soul is to be so very lost in the darkness and we can usually be found hiding within our own self induced Spiritual prison. We have experienced trials and tribulation which have brought forth pain, anguish and suffering. We are hurt. We are confused. We are angry.

We are ... Lost.

Yeah, I know you because you are just like I was. But, let me tell you something. 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 better believe that we believe that we are suffering beyond the imagination of anyone else.

And you know what we seek first don't you? We start looking for a scapegoat. Someone to blame ... Anyone. Most times it is easy to find someone to blame. After all, there is always someone who did do something to us. Sometimes, there are circumstances that sprung forth in our lives that we believed to be way beyond our control which were overwhelming. So, we are happy to blame that as well.

Maybe it is something that we ourselves did instead of what someone else did. Maybe we created the circumstances that brought on the trials and tribulations that have us in such "anguish" ... For Example:

These are just a few of the ... I once was lost examples. Maybe something horrible that was committed against you that is not listed above, but you get the idea. But, what it is our own mistake that is to blame? At either rate, in the end, we truly believe that we are too far gone to be reached. We ponder on thoughts such as:

Lost Soul Therapy
I Once Was Lost Hopelessness

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

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

Most have no clue what I really am deep within.

I've 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.


I'm just TOO screwed up ... I guess.

All the meds, doctor visits, time spent "accepting who I am" ... 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, I once was a Lost soul who was 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 ... 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 can't think of others right now ... I'm sure others are going through as much pain or more pain than I am. I don't want to burden anyone with my problems. I'll just live with em and deal with 'em myself. There is nobody to help anyway.

Lost Soul Pity Party
I Once Was Lost Damage

Oh Yeah, I remember those early days well. We slowly start to believe that we should not even try to be healed or that we are unworthy of being cured. So why hold hope? Just hoping that I can make it through another day? I know some people think that you can't get better until you believe you can get better ... But, most days I really don't believe I'm ever going to get better. How can things change if deep down I know they just can't?

I'm too damaged to do anyone any good so why try?

A Lost Soul usually just passes time every day awaiting the time when they can go back to sleep again. Some days they don't even get up. They are just existing. They are not even living. Sometimes they don't want to be around other people because they don't want them to get the negative vibes given off. Who wants to be around someone that feels depressed, or hopeless, or shameful, or miserable most of the time?

A Lost soul may think to themselves ... I have pushed God aside for too long, He will never take me back now. I know people say in the Bible that God has never left ... But I really do feel sometimes like it's just too late. I already told God I hated Him. I can't take that back as much as I want to sometimes. Isn't that the unforgivable sin that keeps me out of heaven anyway?

I've hardened my heart too much, now I can't even feel God. I know God allows me to choose what I wanted ... Now, it's 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 can't ... Forgive and forget that. Oh, the memories of the chaotic and con-fusing lost soul mindset. I remember those thoughts and emotions well, because I said and did the same things. That negative mentality was like my security blanket.

Lost Soul Manual
I Once Was Lost Blame Game

I remember wondering where God was during all my days of suffering. Many days I blamed God for how I felt. I mean seriously ... If He would have just snapped 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 thought He just doesn't 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. Then, here came more whispers echoing within, as the horrible thought process became commonplace. I subconsciously became addicted to the depressive state of mind and heart.

Then comes the denial stage ...

Yes, I once was lost. I did not think I needed any help or I just did not want the help, might be a better way to put it. God was not in the picture because I did not think He cared. I believed that God did not have time for me and I do not have time for Him. Besides, you have no idea what I did in my past. I could not even forgive myself. I remember the doubt growing within me too.

So, how would God ever be able to forgive me?

Lost Soul Con-viction
I Once Was Lost But Now Am Found Meaning To Me

You know ... I almost felt more powerful or stronger when I just tried to CON-vince myself that I didn't need God or counseling or help of any kind. I'm not sure why really ... It just made me feel better thinking that bad things just happen and that is the way it is and no far off deity could come and make it all better. Maybe, I liked the independence.

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 don't really pay attention if you aren't in pain or they can't pity you and even if they do, it only lasts a while and you have to find others to pity you because the ones that were listening, start disappearing. Like they thought it would never end so they bailed.

Does it ever end though?

Lost Soul Woe
I Once Was Lost But Now Am Found Here

I never tried to help myself. I mean, sure, I went to therapy and stuff sometimes, but I was wanting them to fix me without me putting much effort into it. I didn't really want anyone's help anyway. I was sick of the hurt ... But accepting it became easier than fighting it.

No one would ever really understand what I was going through anyway.

So, why bother?

Yes, that's right ... I fed the fire with the choice to harbor those thoughts too creating so much more pain, because of my choices. I was too stubborn to reach for God and too prideful to ask for help. I did not want people to bother me with the nonsense like the ... I once was lost but now am found song or bother me with the foolishness that I would "go to hell" if I did not choose to believe in Jesus. I just wanted to be left alone !!!

Oh yeah, how rude of me ... Before we continue I suppose this would be as good a time as any to introduce myself ... I once was lost but now am found in a new place that I want to show you.
