One of the downsides to working part time is missing out on the same camaraderie those who work full time share.
The same can be said about our walk with God.
God isn’t interested in part time relationship.
He is ours full time, 24/7, 365.
We think of time in forward increments, God sees all time at any time.
He is, after all, eternal.
When I keep too busy with life, I tend to waver on knowing where I belong.
God is always there to remind me I belong to Him.
He belongs to me.
Nor because of anything I have done, will or can do…
but because I am the only me He made.
That alone makes me, and you, precious to our Creator.
But He didn’t end there.
When we kept wandering, as the distracted tend to do, away from Him, and failed to focus on the words He kept speaking to us through His Word & prophets…
He sent the Word.
To live among us.
To walk beside us.
To listen to our hurts.
To heal our brokenness.
To love away our loneliness.
To touch us- heart, mind, soul & body.
To set us free through the death we deserved.
To know, without doubt, we belong.
We are His.
He bought us at great price, and will never stop calling out to us to come: be known by Him, and know Him.
When we spend a great deal of time with others, we develop a sense of belonging: that we fit, we are good together, which only makes us want to spend even more time together.
We become tightknit, close than we sometimes could ever dream possible.
We know that we know we belong.
If you struggle with knowing where you belong, look no further than His Word, His heart poured out in a love letter like no other.
God reminds us each and every day that we have a place where we belong.
God reminds us each moment that we are treasures.
God draws us close in His embrace, so we can rest.
The belonging you long for?
It is a precious gift,
May you draw closer to His Presence than you can imagine, as He reminds you how much you belong to Him, always.
