As promised last Sunday, I can now write part three of ‘the saga of my new glasses’

For several weeks I have been saddened by what seemed to be the eternal loss of my recently purchased glasses. But then!!! Whilst in Swansea for the New Wine Cymru Leaders Conference, they suddenly appeared under the rear seats of my car where I had already searched several times!

I am so pleased to have found them – not least because of the price I had to pay to acquire them a couple of months ago – and the fact that cost will not now go to waste. I am delighted that those glasses can now fulfil their destiny!

My feelings through this escapade have given me the tiniest insight into what it must be like for God when we remain in the darkness. He has paid the greatest price that we may be forgiven and found in Him and His light, yet so many remain lost.

Let’s make it our mission not to give up on seeking the lost and the lonely, just as was Jesus’ purpose during His earthly ministry. As we show His love to the people of our town, may we see many join us in being able to quote those lyrics ‘I once was lost but now I’m found, was blind but now I see.’

And when she finds it, she calls her friends and neighbour’s together and says, ‘Rejoice with me; I have found my lost coin.’ (Luke 15:9).
