Five Minute Friday....Belong.
Some things just seem to belong together naturally like Fish and Chips,Adam and Eve and a pair of socks.
Can you associate with those feelings of frustration when you can't find that missing sock...and there is always one!
Another of the same colour, bought at the same time just won't do...it hasn't washed or worn the same. It doesn't belong.
I have always had the sense that I belonged to God. Even as a little girl I remember not being able to go out for Play times with my friends as I recovered from a kidney infection. For a while I was excluded, different.. I didn't belong. I remember so clearly sitting outside the Headmistresses room reading a bible.I knew it had the answers to my need to belong...but at that tender age I didn't really understand. But it comforted me,calmed me and guided me.
There have been other times I have experienced that not belonging, feeling, not part of the 'group.'
I used to isolate myself, lick unseen wounds and relive the not belonging.
Gradually my sense of not belonging has diminished as my sense of belonging to God has increased.
I belong to Him and we fit together perfectly...a pair of pretty pink socks with bling, well worn and washed clean.
Without my God I am never going to belong but with Him I am a perfect fit and belonging to Him means everything.
Hope you will join in the fun...for more details on Five Minute Friday click on this link
