If you are anything like me, there are times that you enjoy feeling as if you belong. Whether at a job, in a relationship or neighborhood, you want to feel as if you belong there. During a painful period of constant struggle trying to find a job, finances and relational questions, my prayer to God became “Lord place me where I belong.” I think that it’s a simple yet profound prayer. Oftentimes we find ourselves dealing with people, circumstances and situations that we should not be a part of . Because of that, we may suffer consequences. These consequences can be emotional, mental, physical, financial and even spiritual.
Sometimes you may be involved in something or at a place where you know you don’t belong. There is an uncomfortable-ness that you cannot shake. Feeling as if you don’t belong can also lead to feelings of loneliness and isolation. God never meant for us to feel lonely and isolated. There are times when you may be alone but you should not feel as if you have no one to talk to. The most important Person that you have is Jehovah Shammah, The God Who Is There. He is aware of your every emotion, thought and feeling. He promised never to leave or forsake you. If you are feeling as if you are misplaced and not in the right ‘box’ pray the simple prayer of “Lord place me where I belong in every area of my life.” When you are obedient to His voice and leading, we can rest assured that blessings and peace will surely follow.
