She is a gifted child, doesn’t communicate with confidence, is awkward around people, has an energy inside her, she senses the emotions of those near by, leaves her feeling cold, I don’t belong here. Her mother thought she was under developed, they brought her to see specialists, what was the problem they sighed, the girl didn’t understand, all she felt were the vibes around her, felt like she didn’t belong.

While he walked the earth, Jesus had a difficult time fitting in too. Don’t give up believing, amen.
