A place to belong

For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago. Ephesians 2:10

I did well enough in school but didn’t have much of a passion or focus, like those kids who knew since birth – or maybe second grade – that they wanted to be a doctor or rockstar or veterinarian. When I met Jesus, I found a passion and a purpose, which was good and essential. But I’ve continued to fumble through my jobs, trying to be content and do well, knowing with all my heart that I was not created to do coordinate calendars, plan events, or type up minutes from meetings I can’t seem to focus on.

And I’ve fumbled through the other areas of my life, trying to find that spark – where I fit in this master plan – which so often seems to misfire and die out. I have never been a great communicator. I am not quick on my feet. Emotions are hard to define. My mind is frequently scattered and confused.

But I sit down in front of this banged-up MacBook and everything on this earth starts to make sense. God, people, life, myself. All of it. Each of the places I haven’t fit don’t matter, because I fit here. Everything is just as it should be for this little bit of time in front of this little white screen with the scotch-taped corner. It is easy and beautiful and free. And I am at perfect peace.

So thank you for being here with me, in my special place. It is a pleasure to have you, and I want you to know that are always, always welcome.


  1. It’s an honor to be in your special place with you, Kara. 🙂
