Often we read of someone being lost in the wilderness - or a lost pet, child, etc. To be separated from family and familiar surroundings has to be frightening. Most of us have been lost (to different degrees). But to be lost without hope of being found must be an awful feeling. Yet, all around us there are folks who are -lost without hope.
Several weeks ago, a man gave a praise about finding his expensive hearing aid after searching and backtracking to a store he had visited earlier. There it was - hanging on a cap he had tried on earlier. It was lost, but he found it - and he was rejoicing. I've had that same feeling when I found my cell phone or car keys. To me, they were lost without hope of finding them, but somehow I did find them. Rejoice? You bet!Subscribe to Read!
