Where do I Belong?

  1. Love this, Julie! God has me working through a different aspect of belonging. He is calling me to be brave and stand apart – scary for me. Through this shifting, some people dear to me have pulled back, fallen away. He has walked this path with me and sent me new, surprising people to stand with me. I’m discovering sometimes authentic belonging begins with standing apart. As always, your blog posts touch my heart and make me think.

    1. Thank you for being here, Liz. I can relate to this process you describe of some people falling away while He provides others, specifically chosen for us. I appreciate you sharing your thoughts here with me. Blessings in your belonging, Julie

  2. Feeling on the outside is so hard. I’m beginning to realize how many of us really feel that way. I have to say, I am so very thankful for you. Know that I’m right there with you working to get out of the way and let Christ work through me.

    1. Janyre, I could not agree more, how many of us feel on the outside … which for me begged the question of do we fit in ever when we are set apart (led to today’s post)? Thank you for joining me today here, but thank you in general for walking with Jesus and me. And always, thank you Jesus for your patience and your guidance.

  3. Oh those days when I don’t fit in, I remind myself that this world is not my real home. Scripture says we’ll be set apart, that we should be different, that we’ll be insulted and maligned. I do a gut-check to make sure I’m in His will, then look for the blessing in the situation. Usually, there’s a bigger reason.

    1. Thank you Carole! It is a comfort to know others struggle and return to Him for truth. I have been back to Scripture where Jesus isn’t welcomed or supported by His hometown many times. I have been surprised about my lack of fitting in certain areas of my life. I appreciate your thoughts here. Lets continue to wrap ourselves in His belonging and see where He takes us!

    1. Thank you for being here today Jeanne. It is a help to know other sisters struggle too. Yes, I know Christ is in me when I am at peace at times when I don’t fit in. Then there are times I still feel sad about some things. Spirit reminds me to be set apart and often reminds me to look up to please only my Father. Blessings upon what’s left of this day, Julie

  4. Thank you for this article on one of my key issues. Isaiah 43:1 speaks to me. “But now, this is what the LORD says—he who created you, O Jacob, he who formed you, O Israel: ‘Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have summoned you by name; you are mine,'” God said it. I believe it. It’s settled. -D

    1. Thank you for visiting Sandra. Your response to this verse is a powerful one. I believe His truth, too, that says I am His. Still tossing around the idea of being set apart and fitting in. Perhaps another blogpost … Enjoy your Friday and hope we run into each other again!
