"Yet a time is coming
and has now come when the true worshipers will worship
the Father in spirit and truth, for they are the
kind of worshipers the Father seeks." - John 4:23

My Heavenly Daddy is healing
me from the inside out.

Transparency is Real.
Many times painful.

Daddy let me be secure in You only!

A few of you in the past have asked about the quote in my blog’s heading. When I saw that particular quote one day in one of Dale and Juanita Ryan’s NACR Daily Meditation, I led claim to it. It made such an impact on me, that I put it on my blog from the-git-go.

I would like to “expound “(like that big word guys and gals?) on the quote a bit now below:

God comes to our lonely, anxious hearts and whispers our name. God says "I see both the fear you have of closeness and the deep longing you have to belong. I have come to comfort you and to respond to your need. I have been seeking a relationship with you. You belong. You belong to me. You are my child."

Every time I read this quote, which is at least once a day, I am reminded of the impact the words “You belong” have on me!!! I am actually someone! God considers me His child. I need to be constantly reminded of this, as it does NOT come easy!

I also pray for anyone else who is touched by those words or any part of the quote to accept them into their hearts!!

Since my blogs inception in March of this year, those words, “You belong” have stuck. Still the whole quote is very powerful, and maybe in a few weeks I will be able to relate to yet another promise within the quote. Each time accepting more and more of what God has to offer freely.


  1. It is a very validating phrase, "You belong". Thank you for sharing.

  2. Amen!! "You Belong"...love it!

  3. The enemy's mantra is "you don't belong" He says it over and over ever since the garden, I suppose. ~rick

  4. I can hear the Lord saying, "You belong....You are "Mine"" and I'd rather be His only :) God bless you JBR.

  5. Yaya, glad you were touched by the phrase dear! Appreciate your visits very much, thank you.

    Andrea, glad you too were touched and love it!

    Rikkij, this is so true that satan continues to throw his firey darts of negativism and despair our way. But, we shall overcome!!!

    Well said JBR. Your doing great!

  19. "You Belong". When I was 18 I met my birth mother for the first time. My reaction to her was physical...a gut twist, because we look so much alike. She threw a big party for me, invited all the realtives. It was a bit overwhelming, but her 80 year old Uncle took me for a turn around the yard, held my hand and said..."I am so glad you exist". It was a belonging that had been left at the womb and now returned in flesh and blood.

  20. Oh my goodness W and W's how beautiful. Thank you so much for sharing!!!
