I am lost can you help me.
We have often said this from time to time. We tell our children if you are lost go to a Police officer or storeowner tell them your name, address, and call home. This is just basic survival in this harsh world we have come to exist in nowadays.
We do not always tell them before we send them off to their first grown- up day of school scared and unaccompanied, that they can call on the Lord for a warm feeling in a moment of great fear for a child or a person in a lost place in time.
Do we smile and say, Sweetie you are not alone, the Lord is right by your side making sure you are all right.
I like to see the little eyes light up when you tell them that the Lord loves them just as much as Mommy and Daddy. The scary thoughts just drift away and fear, replaced with a comforting smile.
