Today is National Lost Sock Memorial Day. Yes, that is correct. Today we honor all the lonely socks that have lost their mates. So on this day, you’re supposed to honor the lost socks, and move on with the single ones that are left by using them for sock puppets, or rags. Where do all these socks disappear to? Why are there always lost socks? But no matter what, today, you should get rid of the lonely sock pile.
We are never lost, alone or forgotten. God gives a few stories in the Bible to remind us of this–in Luke 15 he tells of the lost sheep, the lost coin, and the lost son all in one chapter.
Suppose one of you has a hundred sheep and loses one of them. Doesn’t he leave the ninety-nine in the open country and go after the lost sheep until he finds it? 5 And when he finds it, he joyfully puts it on his shoulders 6 and goes home.
Luke 15:4-6 (NIV)
Be strong and brave. Do not be afraid. Do not lose hope. I am the Lord your God. I will be with you everywhere you go.”
Joshua 1:9 (NIRV)
God has his eye on us, always. Do not lose hope. He will be with you everywhere you go.
Dear God my Father, Thank you for being amazing Lord. Keep your eye on me always. Do not let me lose hope. Be with me everywhere I go Lord. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
