hello,

i got a Samsung Galaxy S4 from verizon [SCH-I545 and mk2] i rooted my phone and put a custom recovery on it. i went to my recovery [Safestrap] and back it up, then i went to wipe and wipe my data, system, and cache. then i went to install and try to install CM11 and gapps, it fail then i hit reboot and forgot to hit restore my backup. now i see Samsung and it shows a unlock lock under it says custom. i try to go to recovery but it takes me to odin mode. and i hit volume down>home>power and till to reboot but still nothing. i plug it in my computer and i hear the sound that it reading it but i don't see it in my computer or a window or my toolbar. is their a way i can download something and delete everything on my phone and re install android 4.3 like it was brand new. Thank You!

Lot of things there to help you know what you can and can't do.... Like you can't install any aosp ROMs on SafeStrap for instance lol

If you used Safestrap, then you should still have your stock ROM - just boot into Safestrap recovery and activate the stock slot.
If you used Safestrap to flash the stock slot, well, now you know why that's not recommended. Use the recovery images mistertac pointed you to, and spend some time reading before you flash again.
