Virginia, if you are saved you are no longer a lost sheep. If possible go to a non-denominational church and ask for help. God has found you now you need to find fellowship with other christians. God will bless you.

The Messiah, whom is also called the Savior, said in Matt. 15:24, "I was sent ONLY to the lost sheep of the house of Israel." He was speaking to a Canaanite woman there, a person who was not part of the tribes then known as Israel. Even though she did not "fit in" to the qualificationsof an IIsraelite, Messiah answered her plea and cured her daughter. Never let doubt or confusion place a barrier between yourself and The Messiah of Israel. He is able to match your faith with His favor. Tell Him of your inadequacies and your needs." A bruised reed He will not break, and a smoldering (dimly burning) wick He will not quench..." - as it is written at Matt, 12:20. Tell Him of the light which is in you that wants to shine brightly before the world. Messiah will send the Set-apart Spirit, to "breathe upon" the dimly glowing candle of uncertain faith. "There is [a vital force] a spirit [of intelligence] in man, and the Breath [Holy Spirit] of the Almighty gives men understanding." ( JOB 32:8, AMPLIFIED Translation ) If you have come to a saving faith by believing upon the Hebrew Messiah, the One called the Christ by Gentiles, you are eligible to receive a blessing which comes in the form of the inheritance of those who believe as Abraham believed, Read carefully through Galatians 3: 6-29 to understand how you, through belief, or faith, are placed within theBody of Messiah, made up of "Abraham's offspring hand spiritual heirs according to promise." (V. 29) If you agree with the counsel I offer, I invite you to reply to this message. I should like to acquaint you, by the teachings of Paul in Romans 11, with a Scriptural identification for those who belong to (the house / family of ) Israel. Israel was of course the new name offered to Jacob, grandson of Abraham, who received the assurance of the blessings of Divine Covenant, just as did Isaac his father as did Abraham, who is known as the first Hebrew. I shall pray that you grow in your faith, and that you come to know the comforting Presence of the Messiah of Israel in every aspect of your new life. Shalom. (From Marlin Jones)

The Bible talks about a race. It explains that the life of true Christians is like a race that has a prize. Those who make the effort to live like Christians and to remain loyal to Jehovah are like runners who want to finish the race. The apostle Paul wrote about this type of race in his first letter to the Christians in ancient Corinth. He wrote: Do you not know that the runners in a race all run, but only one receives the prize? Run in such a way that you may attain it.1 Corinthians 9:24.

It's all about rewening your mind. You need to change your mind-set and get all your focus on the Lord. You need get rid of the world and its ways and desires. When worldly people are going, don't go with them at all. You must denie yourself take your cross daily. Know that you're no more of the world, but remember you're of God. A Christian cannot go with nonchristian, but we just share our faith them in order to become Christians. You need watch people you go with. Are they Christians? Dosharing the same faith with you? Do they encourage you to read your bible? Do they get you closer to God? Which friends are you more closer with? Are they Christian friends? Are they worldly followers? Which advise they do give you? Do they love God? You have to ask yourself all these questions. We must not go with people who know don't God. But we must try as much as possible to bring them home to God.
Do you still have desire and love for worldly things again as you in the Lord now? Are you still chasing worldly dreams? Have no love for the world and everything in it again, if you don't do that it would be impossible for you to love the Lord. Because the bible tells us that we shouldn't love the world and anything in it. The scripture says: "Do not love the world or anything that belongs to the world. If you love the world, you do not love the Father. 1 John 2:16.
How can we love God and obey him while we are still cannal minded? How can we do what God requires us to do whiles our heart and our mind are still in the world? How could we grow spiritually whiles we still desire to follow the world? How could we live a Godly-life while we are still living in darkness? God wants us to do whats he want us to do. But still we our mind are unchanged. We need to be so despreate for God so that He might use our heart and mind. If we receive Christ we receive God, but not the world. We have received Jesus to follow Him alone, but not the world. Some of us has received Christ, but still our will is in the world, so due to that we are really acting as woldly people. You would only feel God near you, if you renew your old mind-set to have the mind of Christ and surrender totaly to God.
We have to say NO to the world, and declare YES to the Lord. You would only enjoy your Christian journey if you forget the world and keep focusing on the new WORLD you received. We become new leaf by the moment we would renew our mind.
Let's say no to the world, if we are no more of the world. Let's strongly declare that we are really new from inside us and to outside us. We were like the world, when we were living in the world. But we are no more in the world, but we have a new foundation; and that is Christ Jesus.
Where's your bible? It's your new world now, just pic it and never put it down. Read and obey it, and just go by what it says. Say to yourself that i am certainly not looking back. If you wnat to live a life that pleases God, just hate the world and love God.
Never go with the world again. Just go with God till nothing is no more. God bless you and may He aid you to fine Him. Obey God not the world. The world has nothing at all for you.

Read and practise word of God. Pray unceasingly and sincerely with full faith. Attend eucharistic services and participate in it. A true deep confession will you lighten yr mind and set you free.
