Five Minute Friday – Belong
The Gypsy Mama shares this great idea to write every Friday for 5 minutes on a topic.
Want to take five minutes with me and just write without worrying if it’s just right or not.
I look out over the desk in front of me and wonder, “Where does this paper/note/idea belong?” I have been reading this book about Organization for Teachers. Friends and family look at me funny when they hear me say that I don’t think I am organized because I have kept up this facade that I have things going on in that department. However, I am a “stacks” girl. I generally know WHAT stack something is located in, but generally speaking, things don’t Belong in that kind of chaos. So, I will work toward accomplishing the goal of becoming a little more organized each day.
This brings me to life, however. Sometimes I just don’t feel like I BELONG. It’s difficult to meet new people…I think, “I don’t belong with this group.” It is narrowed down to insecurity. Generally, I get through it and have met some pretty awesome people when I open up and share myself with others. But it is definitely one of those areas I am gifted in.
I am blessed to belong to the King. I am His child and never have a need to worry about how I belong in His life. I can see it through His care over me, His protection, His provision, His guidance, and the security I have in knowing that I don’t have to “hope to fit in”; I am automatically accepted. Thank you, Father.
