When you're in a good family, there's nothing better. You can feel their love when you're together and the sharing is rich, forgiving and healing. I know of no better comfort than to be with family at any time of the day.

Now this can be true whether you're related by birth or not. God establishes networks of people that can become families all around us. There are some work environments where people would say it resembles a family and certainly a good church environment would be that as well.

God provides for us even if our natural family isn't quite where we find our belonging or if they are not near for a season. Bless the Lord.

Isaiah 58:7 (MSG)
7 What I'm interested in seeing you do is: sharing your food with the hungry, inviting the homeless poor into your homes, putting clothes on the shivering ill-clad, being available to your own families.

A magnificent word today, concerned wth the presence of choice of the family around us.It is empowering and touching when the places you live, walk and breathe are filled with people that express their concern for you, know a recipe for chicken soup when you are not well and have a joke that will make you laugh.
Just 'cause they know you.
Praying for your intentional family connections. Thank you for your continual stream of posts of hope, encouragement and power.
