What To Do When You Feel Lost As A Christian

    As a Christian, it’s not uncommon to feel lost or overwhelmed at times. Life can be difficult and it’s easy to feel like you’re not living in God’s will. When this happens, it’s important to remember that God is always with you, even in times of confusion and doubt. Here are a few tips for what to do when you feel lost as a Christian:


    When I graduated from college, I had no idea what to do with my life. I felt lost and confused. This sense of feeling lost is something that many people experience when they leave school or when a major transition in their lives occurs.

    In this post, we will explore how you can get through these times of confusion and uncertainty. We will discuss the importance of making an effort to be in a relationship with others, finding purpose in your work, and cultivating a positive attitude during difficult times. These are just a few things that can help you get through difficult transitions as a Christian!

    What To Do When You Feel Lost As A Christian

    1. Pray:

    When you feel lost and confused, the best thing you can do is to talk to God about it. This can be done through prayer, either aloud or in your head. Pray for clarity, for guidance, and for understanding. Pray for strength to get through whatever situation you’re facing.

    Seek guidance from Christian mentors. When you’re feeling lost, it can be helpful to talk to people who can offer guidance and wisdom. Seek out a Christian mentor who can provide you with support and advice. Talking to someone who is further along in their faith journey can be incredibly helpful.

    Take time to be still. One of the best things to do when you feel lost as a Christian is to take some time to be still. Spend some time in prayer, meditating on God’s Word. Be still and let God speak to your heart. This can help you to gain clarity and direction in your life.

    Listen to Christian music. Listening to Christian music can be a great way to help you find your way back to God. Let the lyrics and music of Christian songs remind you of God’s love and presence in your life.

    2. Read scripture:

    Reading God’s Word is a great way to be reminded of God’s love and to help you find your way. Let the words of scripture fill your heart and mind with hope and direction.

    These are just a few tips for what to do when you feel lost as a Christian. Remember that God is always with you, even in times of confusion and doubt. Seek His guidance and direction, and He will give you the strength to keep moving forward.

    3. Remind yourself of who you are in Christ.

    When we feel lost as Christians, it can be difficult to remember who we are in Christ. We may feel like failures or think that our lives aren’t good enough. Here are some ways you can remind yourself of your identity in Christ:

    • Remind yourself of the good things God has done for you. Think about all the times God has shown his love for you through others and through circumstances in your life.
    • Read scripture out loud every day until it becomes familiar to you again (and even after). Remembering scriptures will help remind you that God loves us unconditionally; no matter what we do or how many mistakes we’ve made, He still loves us just as much as he always has! It also helps when reading scripture out loud because then other people will hear about how much God loves them too!

    4. Write down your blessings.

    When you feel lost, it can be helpful to write down the blessings in your life. You may have noticed that when you write down what you are grateful for, it changes how you feel about those things. You may even come across some things or people that you take for granted.

    Writing down what has been learned from a difficult experience can also be helpful. For example, if God guided me through an issue and led me to someone who helped me through it, I often write down what I learned from that experience (rather than focusing on how long it took). This helps keep my perspective positive as well as giving me something to look back on later when another difficult situation comes up!

    5. Ask for help.

    It’s okay to ask for help.

    This is the most important thing I can tell you, and it’s something that has helped me immensely. When we find ourselves feeling lost, we tend to fall into two traps: 1) We think we’re alone in our struggles, so we try to work through them on our own, or 2) We’re afraid of what others will think if they know how lost we feel. It’s not uncommon for Christians who are struggling with their faith to worry about what God thinks of them and whether or not they should keep quiet about their doubts because they don’t want people thinking less of them as a result. So many times I would have loved someone telling me this when I was struggling myself: “It’s okay.”

    The first step toward recovery from feeling lost is asking for help. This doesn’t mean getting counseling (although it might), but rather let someone else know what you’re going through so that they can offer advice or encouragement in whatever way feels right for them and you both.

    6. When you feel lost, God is there to help.

    If you feel lost, remember that God is always there to help. He is always with you, and he is always watching over your life. He’s not just a distant person who lives in heaven somewhere; he is here for us every step of the way as well. And if we need encouragement or guidance or simply an ear to listen, God wants us to know that he’s right there with us too – even if it feels like no one else is paying attention or cares enough to listen when they could be doing something more important than listening to what I’m saying right now.


    Being lost is a normal part of life. We all experience it at some point, and that’s okay. If God has blessed you with reading this article today, then you are probably experiencing some kind of loss at this moment in time. But don’t worry! God will always be there to help you through whatever situation you may find yourself in—even if it means just listening to your problems or giving advice on how to find something lost. Remember that He loves us unconditionally and wants us all to be happy; what could be better than being free from sorrow?
