I realized it has been a while since I have written on my blog. Many things have been happening, and I must take the time to update you as things are shifting at school and in my heart. God is so good!
Recently I read a phrase in a book that just stuck to me and wouldn’t let go. The specifics indicated that the scripture, “Jesus came to seek and save what was lost”, did not just indicate seeking lost souls, but all that has been lost in our lives. I decided I needed to break this down a little and meditate on this for a bit. After :looking in the online Webster’s Dictionary, here are some of the definitions found:
1 : to resort to : go to
2 a : to go in search of : look for b : to try to discover
3 : to ask for
4 : to try to acquire or gain
5 : to make an attempt
transitive verb 1 a : to deliver from sin b : to rescue or deliver from danger or harm c : to preserve or guard from injury, destruction, or loss d : to store 2 a : to put aside as a store or reserve.

- Misplaced. Relationships. Time. Treasures. Talents. Opportunities.
After breaking this down, I started considering the reality of Jesus seeking and saving what has been lost in our lives. He’s after lost souls for sure, but He’s also in the business of redeeming all other things that have been lost in our lives.
I am filled with peace, hope, and joy as I reflect on this truth. Thank you Jesus for coming to seek and save me and all the things that need redemption in my life. I am expecting to see movement on those lost things that will be rescued in my life.
Thank you King of Glory!
