LOST AND FOUND SONG VS LOST AND FOUND BIBLE VERSE
I ONCE WAS LOST BUT NOW AM FOUND MEANING
Welcome to our Christianity Oasis Daily Bread study program. This is our enLIGHTening and absolutely awe inspiring ... Lost and Found Song trek for truth into the Spiritual meaning of the famous, I once was lost but now am found quote sharing the blessing from being saved by the Grace of God and how the truth within the I once was lost and found song affects your YOU-nique Christian walk.
LOST AND FOUND
Let us begin, shall we? What do the words, I once was lost but now am found really mean?
It means to be so very lost in the darkness usually 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. 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't you?
We start looking for a scapegoat. Someone to blame ... ANYONE.
Most times it is easy to find someone to blame. After all, they 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.
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
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
My spouse is addicted to porn.
I was robbed.
I was raped.
My spouse is having an affair.
I ONCE WAS LOST REASONS
Maybe it is something that WE 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:
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 flaked out on my job and got fired.
I gossip about my friends ... Which is why I lost
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
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
I robbed someone.
These are just a few of the I once was lost examples ... Maybe your own mistake or crime that is to blame or something horrible that was committed against you is not listed there, but you get the idea. In the end, we truly believe that we are TOO far gone to be reached. We ponder on thoughts such as:
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 lost souls 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 ... 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.
I ONCE WAS LOST PITY PATH
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 don't have enough hope. Enough hope
for what? 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 ... But many
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?
Oh, the memories of the I once was lost mindset.I remember well, because I said the same things.
I'm too damaged to do anyone any good so why try?
I'm just passing time everyday awaiting until when I
can go back to sleep again. Some days I don't even
get up. I'm just existing. I'm not even living.
Sometimes I don't want to be around other people
because I don't 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 time?
I've 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.
God allowed 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.
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 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 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.
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.
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 can hardly forgive myself.So, how would GOD ever be able to forgive me?
the doubt growing within me too.
I ONCE WAS LOST BUT NOW AM FOUND HOPE
You know ... I almost felt more powerful or stronger when I
just tried to convince 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
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.
it ever end though?
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.
Now, I'm in so much more pain today, because of my choices.
I was too stubborn to reach for God and ask for help and
then started doubting that He even existed.
I did not want people to bother me with the nonsense
of Christianity or bother me with the foolishness
that I would "go to hell" if I did not believe in Jesus. Just leave me alone !!!
