Where do I hang?

Every day she felt that she had no purpose. She always felt embarrassed about her family. She was a young beautiful girl of color, with spiral locks falling down her nape. Her mom always told her that, she was special. She felt she was an outcast in a community that spoke various languages. She wandered why her roots were so mixed up? white, asian, colored, african.

Until she met a Professor at University who demonstrated that the value of having a different background must work to her advantage. She had ancestral links to many cultures and all of them were focused and believed in One God. It was no longer a problem for her to wander : where do I hang in this mixture of colours? But, the professor helped her understand that, as long as she knew her purpose in life, she would be happy.
God gave each of us a different thumbprint for a reason we hang where we are most suited at His time not ours. Be not ashamed of who you are but remember : U DESERVE TO HANG IN THE BEST PLACE WHERE GOD HAS PLACED YOU. AMEN

Beautiful sentiment. Might want to make sure you have spaces between paragraphs. Makes it easier to read.

Keep writing:)

You had strong message and beautiful descriptions. I could picture your character. But it felt like a summary of a story or a draft of a devotional. I would love to read a scene where the MC interacts with others, so I could see how she felt out of place.

This was a very good devotional, but I wanted more.

Lovely. A wise music teacher.

I assumed a music teacher, but any wise soul with that much compassion - have to love him or her!

I think this is a really lovely message. I think it'll especially reach those who are younger.

You have some tiny typos, like not capitalizing Asian White, African. I worry that it may be slightly off topic but I also know that sometimes God puts a message on our hearts for a reason and we must be faithful.

Your voice in this piece rang out and really encouraged me. Keep writing, you have some simple, yet heartfelt words in you that will touch many hearts.

Beautiful concept. A topic that would resonate with many.

I agree with Bonnie. I wanted more description of how the professor helped her come to terms with her wondering about herself.
