Soul Snack 59/12 ... Valuable Discomfort
Are you over-looked while others are invited in?
Do you stand alone in the midst of groups?
Do eyes turn from you when you catch those of others?
Do others find fault while affirmation eludes?
Have you ever found others disinterested in you or just may be you were even despised at birth?
Do you find that you are not the magnet at the party or the first selected for opportunities of privilege?
God is never disinterested in you even if others are. Your acceptability to others is not how He measures your acceptability to Himself.
You are never out-of-fashion, overlooked or stand alone to the infinite Father who is endless love.
Brennan Manning explained further, Jesus said blessed are you if you love to be unknown and regarded as nothing.
Rejoice if you have been counted as one of the lost, the least, the last or the lonely (you WILL know this) for yours is His kingdom to possess, to enjoy and then bask within forever.
It is far better to be uncomfortable.
Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. (Matt 5:3)
