Belong – Five Minute Friday

I am in the trenches of raising a teenage daughter.  And although I am loving it and her, it might be the hardest thing I have ever done.  I remember what it was like to be a teenage girl – vaguely.  Constantly searching for a place to belong.  

They are a multitude of things that can complicate this.  Do you have a place to belong at school – good friends.  Do you have a place to belong at home – a safe place to come to when the rest of the world has gone crazy.  And probably the biggest and best – do you have a place to belong in Jesus?  
I am so thankful that my daughter belongs to Jesus.  That she has that sense of belonging to help her get through these tumultuous teenage years. What a blessing to know you belong to Jesus!!  No matter what might be falling apart in this world, we know we can count on Him.

  1. I love that your daughter knows her place of belonging in Jesus… and I love reading your heart for her. Cheering for your mama heart tonight. 🙂 (Stopped by from FMF)

  2. Thank you for this reminder of the struggle teens can find themselves in just wanting to belong. I have a teen boy and like you love the child and the age but it's one of the hardest things I've done. I do try to remember back to being that age and the emotional struggles but honestly forgot about how it's all about belonging. Thank you for that reminder. I want to be intentional about reminding him that he belongs to God. Thank you for that. Xoxo
