Be Made Whole

Are there times you feel lost? Do you feel as though something just isn’t in sync? Have you felt as though you were not where you should be? Do you like having that feeling? Would you like to regain the feeling of being where you should be?

We all go through times of feeling out of place. Perhaps it’s as simple as being at a company party. It could be a promotion that moves you up a level. Maybe it is moving across the country. You might have had to be part of a search team.

Regardless of feeling like you are lost, there is one thing we can all do at all times—we can praise God. We may be lost in a strange town. We can praise God and ask for His help. We may be going through a tough time in our personal lives. We can praise God and ask for His guidance.

At no time is it inappropriate to praise God. This is a point I believe we all forget. I know I do at times. We forget God is always there, He is always with us. We lean on our own knowledge and wisdom, rather than reaching out to God.

It is at times like these that we need to reach out to God to put things right. It is when we feel like something is missing that we need to realize it is God, we are not reaching out to Him. God is always ready to come, like the shepherd seeking his lost sheep, to our rescue. We simply need to call to Him.

It is not to say God is not working in our lives. We need to reach out to remind ourselves that He is always there. We need to ask for His assistance to put ourselves back in sync with Him. It gives us comfort and a feeling of peace as we remember God is there with us.

I pray we all reach out to God during those times of feeling out of sync. I pray we ask God to seek us out. I pray each one of us will recognize God is what is missing during those times of unease. Reach out to God. Ask God for help. Ask God to come into the situation. Know that He is always there. Trust God to answer. Be made whole.

Psalm 119:175-176

Let me live that I may praise you,

and may your laws sustain me.

I have strayed like a lost sheep.

Seek your servant,

for I have not forgotten your commands.
