What To Do When You Feel Lost | #942

Fr. Joel Homilies 1 Comment

Ordinary Time, 24th Sunday (C) Today’s readings have one thing in common: the feeling of being lost. The Israelites got lost in the desert, St. Paul got lost in his own intelligence, and the sheep lost his shepherd. Being lost makes us doubt our value. Here are three things we should do when we feel lost:

  1. Don’t forget whose you are. God has been with you, will be with you, and is with you right now.
  2. You’ve used up your own resources. Now stop trusting in your own ideas and trust that God is starting something totally new with you.
  3. Listen to the Shepherd and follow his voice.

Don’t say: “I’m a nobody, worthless, garbage.”
Say instead: “I remember who I am: I will arise and go to my Father.”

Going Deeper: Take a moment to pause, breathe deeply, and present to the Father who is always present to you.

    Thank you Fr. Joel for your homily. I’ve been feeling lost since we sent Cole off to college. Wondering what my new propose is and how do I spend my days. And you reminded me that when we see an end God is already working on a new beginning. I need to be open to receive that new beginning because God has big plans for me. And he doesn’t forget his own. God bless!
