The Sacred Belonging


 
 
When we've hit the wall or reached the end.
 
When we've been denied or abandoned.

Left behind or destroyed.
 
He is there.  He hasn't changed.
 
We are His.  We belong to our Creator, Redeemer, Sustainer.
 
And wonder of wonders, He never tires of that heart-cry ~
 
'I need you now.  God, please save me.'
 
In fact, He can't wait to come down to wrap His lovingly powerful arms around us and pull us close to Himself.
 
Even when we're not in crisis.
 
We belong to Him.
 
This, the sacred belonging.

  3. I think we are both on the same page when it comes to belonging. We belong to our Creator and Redeemer. I love that song. The lyrics are perfect for this week's FMF.

  4. I like the term, "sacred belonging." Your music choice was perfect for this week's word prompt and emphasizes that desire for sacred belonging.

Welcome to the table, friend!

This is where we gather and hang out. I'd love for you to pull up a chair and jump right into the conversation. Or simply say 'hello.'

l'll be dropping in to visit you sometime soon ...
