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.
