Day 9: Lost But Found

It makes you keep going.

You just can't stop

because your heart is beating so fast

that if you stopped you think your heart would stop.

Because something is pulling you that wants you so bad

that it drives you to keep going.

And then you FIND IT.

What you have been SEEKING for your whole life.

Just like the woman who lost a coin. She still had nine coins,

yet she wouldn't stop

she couldn't stop

until she FOUND the ONE~

"And when she finds it, she calls her friends and neighbors together and says,

‘Rejoice with me; I have found my lost coin' "(Luke 15:9.)


And then there is the father whose younger son

left home on purpose

to find a bigger purpose

leaving his father and older brother home.

Oh he was SEEKING and he FOUND lots

as he squandered his inheritance

SEEKING LOVE in all the wrong places.

And oh the father waited.

And then it happened.

The LOST son is SEEN coming down the path

by his waiting father

who immediately

runs to

wrap his arms around him.

His son SEEKING what he thought would FIND him~

what he thought he wanted~

when what he needed was what he had the whole time.

The LOVE of his father

that was so great that

FORGIVENESS wrapped his arms around

who was LOST and was now FOUND~

" 'Quick! Bring the best robe and put it on him. Put a ring on his finger and sandals on his feet. Bring the fattened calf and kill it. Let’s have a feast and celebrate.

For this son of mine was dead and is alive again; he was lost and is FOUND.’

So they began to celebrate" (Luke 15:22-24).

SEEK & THEE shall be FOUND by the ONE

who SEEKS the LOST

who LOVES the LOST

and will leave the 99 to find the ONE


GOD wants no one to PERISH~

and HE means no one.

Even the "worse of the worse",

for who Paul claims to have been,




UNLEASHING Saul to become PAUL

UNLEASHING the PRODIGAL to become HIS child

UNLEASHING you & me & everyone else~

"For the SON OF MAN came to seek and to save the lost" (Luke 19:10).

From RAGS TO RICHES because

HE takes our RAGS and exchanges them for HIS RICHES

the moment we

SEEK HIM with our whole heart mind and soul.

"I tell you, in the same way there will be more joy in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine righteous people who have no need of repentance" (Luke 15:7)

So come to the CROSS and bring your RAGS

for JESUS has a ROBE waiting for you

with no questions asked,

as all you have to do is


because wasn't it there where JESUS saved the LOST samaritan woman?
