That was it :

That for all her yearning to belong

What she wanted was someone to long to be with her. …

Belonging wasn’t about some club, or cool clique, or country — belonging was about Christ. Who never stopped longing to be with her…  

So no matter how many days she felt lost in her  own skin, no matter how she struggled for breath in her lungs that didn’t hurt, that didn’t make her ache, no matter how she kept looking for a home and a place of her own and to be known and roots that would never let her go —

There was always One who longed to be with her — so she belonged.  

You never belong until you believe you do.

And it’s only when you believe you belong, that you believe you are beautiful. …
