This is Not Where i Belong!

By Familyfriends @familyfriends_

I have been blessed to live in three different countries, all three beautiful in there own way. I live now in Spain with the Mediterranean sea just around the corner, but I don’t belong here, or in Sweden, or in Scotland, I belong somewhere else, somewhere so much better.

So many times we let our outer circumstances determine our feelings and how we perceive our lives. And yes it helps sometimes if the weather is nice, you live in a nice house, drive a new car and wear the latest clothes. I have had that view on my own life so many times, but my inner feeling determine my outlook on life! It doesn’t matter if we have the best surroundings in our life if you don’t have peace and love in your heart. February 1999 I invited Jesus into my heart, and by doing that I was forgiven all my sins, and gained everlasting life! Since then I understand that I don’t any longer belong to this world, I belong to Jesus and to my Father in heaven.

But you belong to God, my dear children. You have already won a victory over those people, because the Spirit who lives in you is greater than the spirit who lives in the world. 1 John 4:4

When we accept Jesus into our hearts, it is Him that brings us life, not the world. And sometimes it is so hard to understand so hard to grasp, but when we stubble, in life, in our marriages, in our finances, when we feel we are in the wrong place, I want to remind you that the only place to go to is to Jesus. Don’t try to find your solutions in the world. When we where in our deepest place in our deep marriage crisis, we where definitely in the wrong place, both me and Linda had walk away from Jesus, away from our own hearts, where he actually lived. The world is trying to call you, trying to define you by what you ware, your profession, where you live the list goes on and on. The only thing you need to know is that you are Loved and your are forgiven and you don’t belong to this world!

Then, because you belong to Christ Jesus, God will bless you with peace that no one can completely understand. And this peace will control the way you think and feel. Philippians 4:7

So if you feel that you don’t belong where you are now, turn your self to Jesus and let him guide you to the right path! And if you haven’t invited Jesus into your heart, yet. It is simple, by accepting him he will forgive you all of our sins, he took every sin on the cross, let him set you free.

If you don’t know him and want to invite him into your life, you can pray this prayer!

Dear Jesus, I need You in my life. I acknowledge that I have sinned and I come to You right now confessing that and asking your forgiveness. Thank You for dying on the cross for my sins. I believe You are the Son of God and that You rose from the dead and are alive today. I open the door of my heart and receive You as my Savior and Lord. Thank You for forgiving my sins and giving me eternal life. Please take control of my life from here forward and make me the kind of person you want me to be. In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.
