Lost in the woods

After our Blue Night Service on the 18th, I took time to stop and talk with each person in attendance.  When I checked in with one woman, I asked how her heart was and she told me it was broken. 
She said, "I feel like a lost child wandering in the woods, trying to find my way out."  
I asked, "Do you know what they tell lost children in the woods?" 
"They tell them to stop and stay in one place."  
(long pause) "That's really good spiritual counsel.  Otherwise you just (weaving her arms) keep criss-crossing and missing each other."
"If you stop, it makes it easier for someone to find you."

Our conversation touched me, so I thought I would share.
If you feel lost, stop where you are, and let help come to you.
