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.

You don’t have to be a Christian to pray.

For example, if you’re experiencing relationship problems or feeling lonely, try praying for guidance and peace. You can also pray for courage when facing a difficult situation. Some people even say that the only way they know how to get forgiveness from God is by asking for it in prayer. Praying about your faith can help you find clarity and direction as well: When I was struggling with my faith, I found that praying every day helped me feel closer to God than ever before.

If you don’t know what words to use when praying (or if you’re not sure what “prayer” means), here’s a sample prayer that might help:

“Dear Lord Jesus Christ (or whatever name/title feels right), thank you so much for being in my life today! I am sorry if I have done anything wrong today; please forgive me just as I forgive those who have hurt me today.”

Then ask yourself what else needs to be said? How do things look now? What are some other blessings that we could give thanks for?

2. Read the word.

When you are trying to find your way, the most important thing you can do is read the word. The Bible is not just a book of rules or a collection of stories, but rather it’s God’s love letter to us and contains everything we need to know in order for us to live fulfilling lives. Reading it can give us insight into what God wants for us and how he wants us to live our lives. A good devotional book can also help guide you through difficult seasons. Often times when life gets tough, it’s hard for Christians to know how they should respond because they don’t want their faith compromised by their circumstances (and rightfully so). Reading books on the topic will help guide you through those difficult seasons by showing how other Christians have dealt with similar situations in the past so that you don’t feel alone when things get tough

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?
