“The LORD hath appeared of old unto me, [saying], Yea, I have loved thee with an everlasting love: therefore with lovingkindness have I drawn thee (Jer. 31:3).” Aren’t you glad to know that you’re loved by God? It dawned on me (although this isn’t the first time) that life is simply too short to be any place where you’re not celebrated… only tolerated. It makes no sense to try to fit in, to try to be included, to try to weave ourselves into social patterns that simply aren’t ready for us.
I’m glad God made me as He did–not seeking the approval of man, not desperately seeking friendships, not wanting to be in the know or in the in-crowd. I don’t have the need to be constantly attached to anyone. Yet, I see people desperately wanting to be included in circles that have no interest in them. I’ve seen people remain at churches that seem to have no real interest in them, pushing them aside for the more successful, more talented, or bigger tither. It just seems that if no one has a real interest in your being around, there are plenty of places and people that will appreciate and embrace you. Go where you’re celebrated, not just tolerated! To one group you may be ‘nobody’ but to another you’re just the ‘somebody’ they need and would embrace. Life’s too short to feel brushed over, used, abused and unappreciated. There’s no need to be anywhere that constantly beats up on you. It (abuse) can happen for such a long time that we think that’s the way it should be, or that’s the way it is everywhere–that this is normal. Not so. There are actually groups and people that demonstrate lovingkindness and are inclusive… not exclusive. Get out and get over there and let the celebration begin! Wonderful you.
