*11-YOU BELONG TO ME
(Mindy Johnson)

I look around these faces
And I don’t know where I am
And I don’t feel I can be myself
And I just don’t fit in
And then I hear a gentle voice
As he raises my chin
And tenderly he spoke to me

Chorus
You belong, you belong to me
You are mine, I rescued you, you’ve are set free
And no one can take away
Nothing can take you away from me
Cause you belong, you belong to me

There are days when I feel
So insignificant
So small, so little
In life’s big busy crowd
Then he takes those pierced hands
And shows me what I’m worth
Where he holds me and reminds me….

You belong, you belong to me
You are mine, I rescued you, are set free
And no one can take away
Nothing can take you away from me
Cause you belong, you belong to me

No height, no depth, nothing can take you away
From me, you are mine, I am yours for eternity
You are mine, you are mine, nothing can take you away
No, nothing, no nothing can take you away

Chorus
You belong, you belong to me
You are mine, I rescued you, you are set free
And no one can take away
Nothing can take you away from me
Cause you belong, you belong to me

Behind the Song

There have been many times in my life where I often felt like I just didn't "fit" the puzzle where I was.
I felt lost, wishing I could just "fit in."
And sometimes, to make it worse, in those times, when I wanted to "fit in" ...my anxiety, my nerves got the best of me and I say something totally stupid, and I look ridiculous.

Oh the "people pleaser" part of me can destroy me sometimes!

And at those times I start to listen to the deceiving lies from the adversary telling me I am insignificant.
That I'm just weird.  I'm different.  "And everyone thinks so," is the whisper of the destroyer of souls.
WOW!  Can you hear it? 

It can be a very lonely place. 

But I think in that moment, God raises my chin and tells me I don't have to belong here....
that I belong to Him, and that's all that matters.
The pierced hands, those hands were for me.  He saved me.  He has a plan for me.

But no matter what, I am HIS.
I belong to Him.
And I "fit" into His Kingdom because He loves me.

And no person, no anything can take that away from me.
Nothing can take ME away from my Jesus, my Savior.
Nothing.

He secured my place when he blew the gates of hell away and paid my ransom.
I am free from the chains of sin, I am free from the need of belonging to this world.
Oh the joy when I can embrace that!
He loves me that much.
And I belong to HIM.   Always and forever.
