I loved this today when I read it! It just gave me a sense of peace and belonging! So often we go about wanting to belong.... all of us. It starts in school... but it happens every where we go. We want to belong to be a part of. Not to be left out. If we can get it to drop down into our heat, our souls that we do belong, we belong to God. If we can really internalize this so much of our fear of loneliness would leave us. So often when we choose to do the wrong things we choose to out of our fear of rejection. Our fear of not belonging. When we know, really know that we belong to God, always! .... no matter what, we then get better at making choices based on what will make God happy. We are less likely to become slaves of the need to belong.
Psalms 37:4 tells us that God cares about the desires of our hearts! God knows that we "need to belong." If we spend our energy belonging to God.... God will make sure that our needs are met...even our need to feel like we belong.
