Five Minute Friday :: Belong


Speakout Sparklers

{This is a little blip from our English Camp in Keszthely, Hungary.  During each of 3 weeks, students come from all over Hungary and we get to love on them and speak to the about the One who loves completely and perfectly…every week/day, lives are changed forever:}

Go ::

I have always longed to belong…

It is a strange thing to say, since I was born a twin

a built in best friend.  And as long as we live

and beyond I believe we will always

share that precious gift.

But the belong for which I have longed

I am coming to believe from somewhere

inside my heart of hearts

that placed that is marked

and set and positioned towards


that I long to belong forever.

I long to take one eternally deep breath

and know that all that wants to take me

away from Home can never do so again.

To breath in crystal clear that which will never,

ever pass away.

And this kind of belonging is what has begun to mark

my sojourn here in this earthly tent.

The tent is my body, but it is also this world.

I have let go and continue to let go of places

that I have loved. I cannot go back and yet

they call me back to the love that dwelt there

but they also, now, have begun to point me

forward.  Like this book that I love

and it talks about the best of all that we

have loved how we will forever be discovering

the further and deeper of the good that

it is.

But to belong is human.  To belong is real.

To belong shapes the restless journeys of

a fallen sin-weary world.  And so, as I begin

to put my hope more fully in the world that calls

me deeper and stronger every day, I live more

deeply here looking around this vast world

asking who is searching for their eternal home too…

Come weary ones…journey with me too?


faith filled friday
