I got lost...on my way to church!
So Jacklynn and I have been members at Real Life for about a 7 or 8 months and I got lost on my way to church. I knew exactly where I was supposed to go and have driven there or by there tons of times. I missed my turn because I couldn't get over and I figured I'd turn into this sub-division and instead of turning around I would just come out on the other side. Little did I know there was no other side to the sub-division and it was a huge circle. I thought I would come out at a different spot and so I turned like I was coming out at the point I assumed I would. Once I began to see that I was heading OUT of town instead of towards church I knew I had made a mistake.
Have you ever been lost? We always talk about "the lost" at church like people who haven't become a Christian yet are people just wondering around with this dazed look on their face completely clueless as to what is going on. Some may be like that, but I think the vast majority of the rest are much different. I think they're more like I was. They think they know where they're going or how to get there, but are completely confused. They have a goal in mind of where they're wanting to be or go and are working towards it, but in reality are heading away from it as opposed to towards it.
