Belonging

 I have often asked, and others have also asked, the question “Where to I belong”. This usually happens when the cycle of happiness begins to wane. We are not always happy; we are, sometimes, sad or depressed. It is at these times that we must look inward to find our true worth and where we truly belong. Every day, whether we realize it or not, God asks us to become more fully the person He wants us to be.

 In His eyes, we are beautiful; as a creation of God, we can be nothing less. We are part of nature, and in God’s nature, all is beauty. Let no one tell us otherwise. Our function is to reflect this beauty in ourselves and in others. All we have to do is accept this wonder of God’s creation, awaken to the presence of God within us, to live in that sacred place created by Him.

 I believe that we are always in God’s care, warm in His loving embrace. Quoting from Jeremiah 31: “God appeared to him from far away. I have loved you with an everlasting love; therefore, I have continued my faithfulness to you.” These are comforting words to remember when we feel alone, unwanted, or lost.
