    I'm just coming into reading the Bible. But I must admit I feel lost, even though I do believe in our saviour Jesus Christ. My faith has always been in him but my life is like a muddy picture where I'm trying to see my life purpose and I am lost. I felt compelled to write this as tears fall from my eyes.
