Belonging begins with finding the right spiritual “home.” When we choose to follow God and His ways, he receives us into His family with open arms and unending love. No matter where we have been in the past, and regardless of what we have said when we receive Jesus we belong.
“Yet to all who received him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become the children of God.” (John 1:12)
Dear Heavenly Father, Today I come to you looking for a spiritual “home.” I am tired of striving to find a place to fit in, a space where others accept me for who I am. Help me to know today how much you love me, and give me strength to receive your love and mercy and to belong to your spiritual family. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
