And it was a happy day for him when he gave us our new lives through the truth of his Word, and we became, as it were, the first children in his new family”. James 1:18 (TLB)
You may ache right now, way deep inside, with the absence of true love and belonging in your own life—of family, acceptance, and home. Some may have told you that you don’t fit in, don’t belong, shouldn’t be here, or were never meant to be. Dear one—none of that is true.
No matter how the brokenness of the world has tried to mar, destroy, or break you—no matter what has left you feeling defiled, or like damaged goods, this was never God’s original plan for you. In reality, you were created to love and to be loved; to be secure in who you are; and in the beauty of who you were created to be. You were meant to live fully alive in the life God has prepared for you, including a place to live, and people—good, kind, and loving people—to share life with you.
God’s desire is that you would embrace these truths and let all lies fall away. They have cost you far too much already. Accept the healing power of His restorative love, and the home you have, secure in His heart—full of acceptance and belonging in Christ Jesus—Who truly sees, and has given His life, for you!
If you can dare to risk, to believe that it could be so, then the long days of searching will be over. Walking through rejection, disappointments, heartbreaks, and heartaches—finished for good.
No matter what you are struggling with, or through, in this very moment of time—God is the answer. He has laid out a path of perfect peace for you to walk in, with the full intention that you will never walk alone, for the Holy Spirit’s abiding presence overshadows it all.
Embrace the love He is sending today, truest treasure of His heart. Look up with new eyes and see the good things, planned from the beginning of time, on their way to you!
Thank You Father that it was Your desire that I would become a part of Your family—Your very large and loving family—and that I would have a special place in Your heart and in the midst of Your family.
Thank You for knitting our hearts together with You and with each other, allowing Your love and Your light to shine through! Let your life, Your love, and Your Word dwell richly in my heart. Let me represent You well as Your beloved child, and bring great glory to You!
Beautiful and Holy Jesus, it is in Your Name, I pray.
