Recently, David Baxter spotted a soccer ball on an Alaskan shore. The ball was tattered, weathered and had extensive Japanese writing on its surface. When Baxter translated the writing, he discovered that the ball had floated aimlessly to Alaska all the way from Japan.
The markings listed a Japanese village and the owner’s name, so Baxter was able to contact the 16 year-old owner of the soccer ball and have the ball returned. After the ball was returned, the 16 year-old told reporters that he was very grateful because this piece of his past was his only personal item found after the destruction of the Tsunami.
As we all know, anytime something special gets found, it is a great thing, and that is why Jesus made a point to say that He was sent by God to “…seek and save that which was lost” (Luke 19:10).
You may have just weathered a personal storm and feel a little lost.
You may feel that you are just floating around without purpose and feel a little lost.
You may know you are lost and unable to navigate your future.
Remember, God cares about you and is seeking you. (John 3:16)
Have a Blessed Day!
