Belonging

Belonging

I do not know when the relentlessness of life’s most hurtful things will make sense but I do know that with Jesus I find my belonging. I do not have to negotiate, or prove my worth. I find friendships potential and the utter acceptance of me. I find a friend that will not drop me, that is loyal for life! He tells me Everyday that His vision for me is still so great and that His dreams of what we can do as a team is still building!  I do not know if you have moved away from your tribe, been told you no longer serve a vision in a persons life, or have lost someone though death or sickness. I hope you know you belong. That you are important and that you matter. Valued. You belong to Him and He will never give up on you. Just an FYI, I never will either! In all the transitions and transformations of life, I’m here.
