Have you ever felt lost in life?
Or maybe felt like you were a lost cause?
I recently heard a song by Remedy Drive called “Resuscitate Me” in the song he says,
“I might be lost, but I’m not a lost cause I’m barely breathing I’m barely seeing I’m barely even alive I’m barely breathing I’m barely seeing But you can wake me inside I need you to save me It’s not too late to resuscitate me Don’t let go”
Have you ever felt like that; drowning in a hopeless life. Maybe you have felt like David as he writes Psalms 38
My guilt overwhelms me— it is a burden too heavy to bear. My wounds fester and stink because of my foolish sins. I am bent over and racked with pain. All day long I walk around filled with grief. A raging fever burns within me, and my health is broken. I am exhausted and completely crushed. My groans come from an anguished heart.
You know what I long for, Lord; you hear my every sigh. My heart beats wildly, my strength fails, and I am going blind. My loved ones and friends stay away, fearing my disease. Even my own family stands at a distance.
Sometime sin can make us feel sick. That guilt eats away everything we love; even our families. You feel like you are barely alive. You might be so lost you feel like there is no hope. Sometimes it feels as though God has left us. But as they say in the song, “But you can wake me inside, I need you to save me, It’s not too late to resuscitate me, don’t let go” It’s never too late; He is always there when we cry out to Him.
Jesus says in Matthew 18:12-14, “What do you think? If a man owns a hundred sheep, and one of them wanders away, will he not leave the ninety-nine on the hills and go to look for the one that wandered off? And if he finds it, I tell you the truth, he is happier about that one sheep than about the ninety-nine that did not wander off. ”
You may feel that it’s too late for you. That you are to far gone. You may have once tried to live for Him, but have gotten so far you don’t feel like you are lost or dying, but already dead. And there’s no way to get out of the situation your in.
In John 11 it tells the account of Lazarus. He was a friend of Jesus’. He became very sick and died. Jesus came to the place where Lazarus was buried. He had been dead for four days by this point. Jesus called to Lazarus, “Lazarus, come out!” and Lazarus walked out.
Jesus is always able to find you and pull you out of your situation.
Whether you are drowning in sin, worry, discontentment, stress, fear, pain, or if you feel that you have already drowned and are floating face down through the river of life. Jesus is looking for you.
John 5:24 Jesus says, “I tell you the truth, whoever hears my word and believes him who sent me has eternal life and will not be condemned; he has crossed over from death to life.”
Think about it…
