While revisiting and sharing my 3 day devotional “Wanted”, I’ve been meditating alot on the idea of belonging. The truth is I have never really felt like I belonged to many things in my life. There was a time in my life where I tried the very best I could to assimilate into different spaces. The strange thing is that regardless of my efforts, it never really happened. No matter how hard I tried to blend in, the light inside of me would always find a way to show itself. At first, I was afraid to let it shine. However,the older I got, I refused to dim my light in order to make others comfortable in my presence. I began to own it. I started to see myself as a force whose power laid in my uniqueness. You see. Being my true authentic self was my superpower. It was what made me who I was and I will no longer apologize for being who I AM.

Yet, there have been times in my life since that I have sometimes tried to retreat or allow others to diminish my sense of self. In those times, I’d eventually come to my senses. I’d ask. Who am I? I am a daughter of the most high God. I am made in His image. Therefore, I bear His light as a vessel of His glory. Although I am imperfect and at times shattered from the impact of live, His light shines even brighter through the cracks.

Due to the simple fact that I AM an heir and reflection of the Great I AM, I belong to His kingdom. Such belonging entitles me to possess and experience all that belongs to Him. No- Thing Less. I don’t assimilate to anything. Because of His authority at work in me, I can cause the atmosphere to shift and assimilate to me. For that reason, I belong right where He has me in this particular space and time until He changes it.

I have decided that from now on, I will longer apologize for who I am or explain it.. I will embrace it and walk in my God-given right to just Be. Be great. Be honorable. Be strong. Be beautiful. Be courageous. Be humble. Be wise. Be prosperous. Be loved and love. Be hopeful. Be joyful. Be peaceful. Be…

You’ve been given the same right. We are so quick to forget that. Let it marinate into your innermost being. Declare It.

Who do you say you are? Who does He say you are? Who will you chose to be today?
