It’s common to want to feel a sense of belonging. When we belong, we are accepted as a member of the group. A sense of belonging is a normal human need just as our need for food and shelter is. When you feel like you belong, you feel your life has value and you cope with your emotions better.

Sometimes though, we lose our sense of belonging.

This can be for a variety of reasons. Traumatic events could influence a person’s self-esteem and self-compassion. Trauma often leaves survivors feeling out of sync with the rest of the world. They feel lonely, overwhelmed, anxious, turmoil and emotional pain that creates a sense they are different.

So, my question is Are you feeling out of place?

A sense of belong is something we all crave and sometimes because of modern technology or the place we are in at the moment we can have feelings of disconnection.

If we are feeling isolated it might be because we haven’t created meaningful relationships and feel out of place.

Our relationship with Jesus is that belonging is about so much more than a relationship with something, but it is more about a relationship with someone.

Together, Giving Jesus,
