“I belong to Jesus.” (Galatians 6:17)

To belong means to be “rightly placed in a specified position; to be rightly classified in or assigned to a specified category; to fit in a specified place or environment.” (~Siri)

Are you unsure where you fit in this world, whether or not there is a slot for you, if you have anything to contribute, or if you belong anywhere? This encouragement is for anyone who has yielded to the leadership of God who made you and loves you:

My Child,

There is no other person in the world designed exactly as I have designed you. My own heart knit you together in your mother’s womb. You are created for belonging.  You belong to me. You are designed for a purpose. This purpose gives you meaning, fulfillment and delight, a reason to awaken every morning with a song.  I have ordained this purpose for you. Believe my word: you are created with beauty, design, and intent. There are no exceptions to my grace or to my Truth. Believe, dear child. You belong.

~Jesus

You made all the delicate, inner parts of my body
and knit me together in my mother’s womb.
Thank you for making me so wonderfully complex!
Your workmanship is marvelous—how well I know it.
You watched me as I was being formed in utter seclusion,
as I was woven together in the dark of the womb.
You saw me before I was born.
Every day of my life was recorded in your book.
Every moment was laid out
before a single day had passed. (Psalm 139:13-16)

Lord, I choose to believe your Word of truth, that I belong to You, that I always have a home in Your blessed heart, that every promise you have uttered in your Word is true for me, that I am not an exception to your lavish grace and provision. I belong to you and you belong to me. Thank you.  Amen.
