Eggnog French Toast

Not a Sugar Cookie & Eggnog French Toast

Hebrews 13:2 (nirv)

Don’t forget to welcome outsiders. By doing that, some people have welcomed angels without knowing it.

Read

Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy church, and eventually, we found a church that really stole our hearts and represented Jesus in nearly every capacity. But it can be difficult to find a place to call your church home. Believe me, I get that.

For years, I’ve felt like the churches that I walked into were filled with primarily 1 mold. I’ve walked into so many doors and sat in so many pews where I felt out of place and like I didn’t belong. I felt like a bright pink macaroon in a sea of sugar cookies. Maybe you’ve felt that way too at church?

But here’s the thing; just because you might be different, act different, or look different, doesn’t mean there isn’t room for you in the community of God’s children. Sometimes, we have to be willing to stand alone and stand out to show others that they’re welcome.

I used to try to say all the things my church friends said and wear the same things the church crowd wore. It wasn’t until recently that I changed my viewpoint on this. Now, I feel like God urges me to be okay with standing out. He encourages me to add my own value, in my own words, to conversations that I wouldn’t normally be a part of. He’s asking me to also listen in on those conversations and learn from them in order to recognize the common ground I share with these other Christ-seeking humans.

And today, I felt like He was asking me to share this with you; all the other non-sugar cookies out there – to remind you that God created variety because He enjoys it. You, in all your differences, are still more than worthy of a seat in the rows, a hug at the front door (if you want one…), and the honor and privilege of speaking the name of Jesus without apology.

Write

Do you feel that you don’t always belong in the “church community”? What makes you feel different or like you stand out?

Pray

Ask the Lord to show you the incredible plans He has for you and your differences today.
