FMF-Belong

I sometimes feel as if I do not belong anywhere. I am not one of the beautiful people, or the smart people. Definitely not an athlete, or outstanding personality type. I am just plain, simple me. When I begin to feel like I do not belong, or feel lonely, I turn to Jesus. He lifts my head, dries my tears, replaces those tears with smiles. He replaces all negative thoughts, with positive ones. He assures me over, and over again, that I truly do belong, to Him. Believe me, that is the best place to belong, now, and forever.

Sometimes I think that the devil tries to put thoughts in our mind about ourselves that actually apply to him! You belong to Jesus. He set you free!!

I can sure relate to feeling like I don't fit in. I, too, have learned to turn my focus back to Jesus especially when I feel like that. Thanks for sharing your heart.

I think everyone feels that way, sometimes especially those who are in any kind of spotlight. But to god there is neither jew nor gentile and we are allvadopted as sons of the king. It is a wonderful place to belong. It makes me think of the verse, i would rather spend one day in your courts than thousands elsewhere. Thank you for sharing your heart - i feel the same way some days :)

You speak my heart. I often feel as if I don't belong any one place. But I have to keep looking at Jesus and asking Him where I belong. And He is everywhere so whatever I am doing I belong there, because He is with me. Blessings!

Rebekah said...

We are all unique in our own way. A person doesn't have to be all of these things of grandeur to be beautiful. Simple IS beautiful and plain is ok. Nothing wrong with that!

Dawn said...

AMEN! You wrote my story too! {{hugs}} my friend.

Natalie Hart said...

You're so right -- we need to hear it over and over again, and Jesus tells us over and over again. Thanks for this encouragement.

Linda@Creekside said...

Oh yes, Denise, we need to re-calibrate and focus on Who is ours and how richly He defines who we are!

Cheryl said...

I feel the "I don't belong" more than I'd like to admit. Sometimes I take it further to "I'm not acceptable." I know it's not true, but those thoughts wage war in me sometimes--if I let it. But I know I belong with Him and with those that honor His name. I am acceptable in Him and am being make complete in him. But I know the loneliness. Running to Him is the only cure.
Thank you for writing it.

Farida said...

Amen, Ms Denise!

Peggy said...

Amen. I often feel like I don't belong but Jesus always shows up and ensures me that I do.

Pamela said...

Ah, Denise. We are beautiful in God's sight. It's the enemy that whispers those words in your ear. You chose wisely to look to God for your worth.

Shannon Cochran said...

I love how you always turn to Jesus. The Lord blesses me every time I read the thoughts of your heart that you pour on the page. May the Lord embrace you, beloved daughter of the King of Kings, time and time again.

We are all special and I'm glad Jesus has shown you the way to understand this.

Heather said...

There is great blessing when we know who we belong to. :)

Heather said...

It is such a blessing knowing who we belong to. :)

Floyd said...

We all fall an eternity short of His glory... It is His love and mercy that brings peace... Wise words to use to pull us from the place the enemy whispers lies over us... God bless, sister. Thanks.

Casey Springer said...

Well said. He is the only one that really matters for us to belong to! Hugs!
