You Are Accepted

Sometimes it’s hard to adjust to a new area where you stick out because of how you look or your language or culture. I admire people who live in foreign countries where they stand out but thrive anyway.

Being at home with yourself and accepting of who you are is paramount in these situations.

I’m still on the journey towards self-acceptance. Something that helps me is focusing on how God accepts me. There’s a seat at his table for me and if I’m not at the table, the seat stays empty. No one else can take my place with him.

We can belong with him in a place that doesn’t quite feel like home.
