Musings From A Musical Mind

Lost

So I’m at my Zumba class tonight – GREAT FUN!!  And by the time I leave – it is dark.  I parked the car – quite a ways from the front entrance – I took note of what was around me etc. and was so sure I knew where my car was.  I don’t like coming out of anyplace alone and in the dark – but at least there were many people milling around in the parking lot.  But….

Yes – you guessed it.  I couldn’t find the car.  It was funny at first – and just annoying – I mean I had really paid attention to where I had parked it – just in case…Okay – I do tend to lose my vehicle quite a bit – even in the day light – so I have to be sure to pay very close attention when I go anywhere at night.  So here I am wandering around the HUGE parking lot – filled with every vehicle imaginable.  I walked down one aisle – it looked sort of familiar – but there was no car.  So I went down the next aisle – and the same thing.  After a few minutes it wasn’t funny or annoying any more – and I wasn’t too concerned about looking like a COMPLETE DORK – Okay I was a little concerned about that – but it began to become alarming. And by alarming – I mean – all these weird things were popping  into my head like – “the car is stolen. ”  It’s pretty old – but still a nice Mazda Millennia – who knows – would someone really want it for the stereo system or something?  And since this have NEVER happened to me before – I really didn’t know what to do.  So I called Greg on my cell – and he laughed at me.  Okay – he stopped when he knew how panicked I was.  I told him I just wanted to sit down in the middle of the parking lot and cry like a baby.  Isn’t that silly?  It didn’t feel very silly.  I felt – lost.  But he assured me it probably wasn’t stolen – just misplaced for a moment.  He knew I’d find it if I walked down the middle aisle and went across – and eventually – I did.  It probably took 10 minutes – but it felt like an hour of walking around.  But it was there all along – my sweet little car – waiting for me as if to say, “I’m over here.  Over Here.  OVER HERE!!!”

Well I was relieved and WAY past feeling silly this point.  It was a “Thank you Lord” moment – so thankful that my car wasn’t stolen after all.  And that totally helpless and lost feeling was gone – in an instant.

Do you ever feel lost? Incredibly frustrated – even silly for feeling that way?  Me too.  Our lives can sometimes go this way – a little “sideways” and it can throw us off and make us feel helpless and frustrated – and all we want to do is sit down and have a good cry.  I believe that Jesus understands this about us.  I believe we will all have days and moments like this.  I believe for every bad lost “moment” – there is an even better “moment” around the corner.  A feeling of being “found” – of being valued – of being loved.

I am praying for you today.  That if you are lost – that you would indeed be found.

God Bless

  1. I don’t lose my car very often. But I will admit it has happened to me a few times. More often, I’ve locked my keys in the car! The secretaries at the last church I pastored will always remember me for it, I’m sure. My “parking lot practice” is to always park straight out from the front doors, even if that means I must park a long ways away. That way, I only need to walk straight out of the doors when I leave until I reach my car.

    Strangely, I have this recurring dream about always looking for something I’ve lost. Is that weird or what? I usually get so agitated that it wakes me up! Then I get disgusted with myself because it’s only a dream.

  2. Oh I am directionally impaired. I get lost backing out of my own driveway!

  3. I have been through that before Cindy. In fact several times when I thought my car was gone too. Of course I had forgot where I parked it. As for prayer for feeling lost, well that is always needed. Thank you. Have a great weekend.
