Unlocked: Daily Devotions for Teens

I am lost

The world shatters

I am alone

Nothing matters

I am done

Reality has broken into a million pieces

And I am lost in the chaos

I am finished; the nightmare’s begun

Beaten and bruised; scarred and in pain

I stumble through the dark

I scream

Death is at my door

A knock at the window

Another Visitor


The Light hovers outside

I invite Him into my heart

Death is gone

The nightmare has ended

Life slowly pieces my world back together

I am no longer alone

I have been found • Maria Achilleos


• We live in a world full of evil, darkness, and death. At times we feel
lost and hopeless. But even as our world falls apart, God searches us out.
Through His own death and resurrection, Jesus saves us from death. When
Jesus returns to raise all His people from the dead, we will live with Him
forever, free from pain and sorrow. As we wait for that day, Jesus holds us
close, and He takes all the broken and painful parts of our lives, working
everything for good.


• Has there ever been a time in your life when you felt as if God abandoned
you? How could it be comforting to know that even Jesus felt this way when
He was on the cross? (Mark 15:34)


“For the Son of Man [Jesus] has come to seek and to save the lost.” Luke
19:10 (CSB)
