Lose yourself & find others

Looks like I'm on a roll with bands and music this week. There is another band we saw live a couple of weeks ago called The Color Morale. I spoke with the lead singer, Garrett Rapp. He said he had a bad teenage life and going to shows is what kept him together. His lyrics are honest and thought provoking. Their t-shirts are positive and all about hope. The words on this picture are on the back of one of their t-shirts. I like how he is trying to bring hope to this generation of kids who feel like they don't have any.

I talked about hope last week. So I won't go into that again. But what does it mean to share hope with someone? 

Telling people that they are loved and have a purpose can really give them hope. Praying for others, listening to others, or just being there might be all they need. I think it's important to lose yourself sometimes. Get out of your own head/ issues and think of others. No matter what you are going through, there is always someone who is worse off than you.

Proverbs 17: 17 says, "A friend loves at all times, and a brother is born for a time of adversity."

Psalm 122: 8 says, "For the sake of my family and friends,
    I will say, “Peace be within you.”

Speak peace, love and hope over someone today. Pray for people. Step out of your comfort zone and be a friend to someone in need. Just be there!
In the song Strange Comfort, the chorus says this:
"I know I'm lost
I know I'm lostBut what scares me the most is I'm starting to feel at homeI know I can't stay here foreverWhen we lose ourselves we find each other"
There are so many people who feel lost and need hope. Lose yourself and find them. They need you.
