I was seven or eight years old when our family decided to have a fun night out at the circus.  Popcorn, cotton candy, and an evening under the big top!  To be honest, I don’t remember a lot of the details, but I do remember one thing quite vividly.  On the way out, I became separated from the rest of my family.  Once I realized what had happened I retraced my steps, but my Mom and sister were nowhere to be found.  I was lost, which was a pretty scary feeling for a little kid!  I’m grateful that a nearby police officer realized that a young boy shouldn’t be out walking by himself, asked me if I was lost and stayed with me until I was reunited with the rest of my family.

Have you ever felt that way?  Hopelessly lost with no sense of how to get back to where you should be?

Sarah knows the feeling.  She wrote to us recently and said:

“After going through a divorce after 25 years marriage and the passing of my father all within months of each other, I was closed off.  A co-worker introduced me to Life 101.9. I have to say if it wasn’t for your station bringing me out of that place I’m not sure where I would be.”

Sarah was lost.  The circumstances of life led her to place where she didn’t know where to turn.  And just like that police officer who helped me find my way back to my family, Life 101.9 has been blessed to point her in the right direction.  While the music on Life 101.9 won’t fix all of the problems she is facing, having the reminder of that God loves her, even in the middle of the storm, has made all the difference.
