Devotional: When I feel Left Out
Children's Devotion on feeling left out
Like how Jesus was treated in this passage, there are times we can feel left out. When nobody seems to want to play with us, or we don't get chosen and end up the only one on our own. Other kids may be more popular at school, and we just get overlooked. This is a very painful thing to go through. But you don't have to go through it alone. God sees what's happening. He sees inside your heart and sees the tears you cry. He loves you so very much and He wants to be your friend. Other kids may do and say really mean and cruel things – but Jesus would never do that. He would never do anything to hurt you.
We all want to be liked. We all want to have friends and feel part of the group. It's so hard when we are left out. The other kids don't know what they're missing in having a friend like you.
If you don't know Jesus as your friend – would you pray and ask Him to be your friend?
Here is a prayer you might want to pray:
I ask you into my life. Forgive me for the bad things I have said and done, and make me like a new person. Help me to always know you are with me, and that you love me. Amen.
Also you can ask God to send a friend or two across your path – and He will!
The stone which the builders rejected has become the chief cornerstone. - Psalm 118: 22 (NKJV)
Lord, there are times I feel alone
When others leave me out,
But I know that I have a friend in you
To show me what friendship's about.
