You Have Not Lost Me

How long will this take
How much can I go through
My heart, my soul aches
I don`t know what to do
I bend but don`t break
And somehow I`ll get through
Cause I have you

And if I have to crawl
Will you crawl too?
I stumble and fall
Carry me through
The wonder of it all is you
See me through

Oh Lord where are you
Do not forget me here
I cry in silence
Can you not see my tears
When all have left
And hope has disappeared
You find me here

When everything I am is lost
I have forgot but you have not
When I am lost you have not lost me
You have not lost me

- Superchick - "Crawl (Carry Me Through)"

It seems that no matter what Superchick comes up with these days, they always have wonderful lyrics.

For no particular reason, it was comforting to hear and remember today that when I feel lost, He has not lost me. He is indeed there, walking, or crawling, with me whenever I stumble. And no matter how clueless I am to the direction we're going, He is not lost, He knows exactly where this journey is headed.

Lord, thank you for your comforting presence, especially when I feel lost, tired, or scared. When I am crying, thank you for giving me your shoulder. When I am lost, thank you for showing me the way. When I am tired and don't feel like I can go on, thank you for carrying me. When I am scared, thank you for holding my hand. Thank you for being by my side, at every moment of my life. As we continue on this journey, please continue to guide me through the difficult times and lead me to Heaven. Amen.

St. Anthony, patron of lost things, pray for us.

"We are not the sum of our weaknesses and failures;
we are the sum of the Father's love for us and our
real capacity to become the image of His Son."
