Today’s writing prompt: Belong

Sometimes I feel like I don’t belong anywhere. I look around at my surroundings and think, what in the world am I doing here? When I am around other bloggers, I feel so inadequate.

I write and share my heart, but then after hitting publish — I feel fake — like I am just only doing half of what God wants me to. It’s like He keeps whispering to my heart, “Stop trying to make yourself fit in here. I have a special task for you. It’s different. You need to step out and embrace it.”

All my life growing up,  I have never belonged. I struggled for most of my childhood and teenage years in school with bullies, mean girls, and just discovering who I was. Even in my own family, I felt like I never belonged.

BUT THEN — I met Stephen, who has been my husband for almost 20 years, and instantly I felt like I was where I was supposed to be. I am his and he is mine. We belong together. We compliment each other. He makes me feel like I have a place in this world and daily encourages me to reach out and grasp what God has for me.

The real one that makes me feel like I belong though is God. He is my true source of acceptance. There is no one on this earth that I have to compete with or be like. God loves me just like I am and in His arms is where I belong.

      Wow Lisa! Yes. I love my nest here at home :) And love the fact that your hubby’s name is Stephen too.

      I feel that way many times when I read other’s posts. It’s like they are living my life.
