Feeling Stranded?

I liked the look of life until it took me for a ride that left me reeling. I guess I thought character could be built from the comfort of a passenger seat. So with the help of a little bohemian blood in my veins, I tried hitch hiking instead. But after wandering aimlessly without purpose or direction, I started to feel lost. Until one day Jesus met me, sitting on a curbside with my hair disheveled, my clothes stained, and my soul worn.

Has this life left you feeling stranded? Perhaps it's time to turn to Jesus for help.

"The angel said to the women, “Do not be afraid, for I know that you are looking for Jesus, who was crucified. He is not here; he has risen, just as he said. Come and see the place where he lay. Then go quickly and tell his disciples: ‘He has risen from the dead and is going ahead of you into Galilee. There you will see him.’ Now I have told you.”

So the women hurried away from the tomb, afraid yet filled with joy, and ran to tell his disciples. Suddenly Jesus met them. “Greetings,” he said. They came to him, clasped his feet and worshiped him. Then Jesus said to them, “Do not be afraid. Go and tell my brothers to go to Galilee; there they will see me.”
-Matthew 28:5-10
