Family of the Father

“Whoever does God’s will is my brother and sister and mother.” – Mark 3:25

When we invite God to be our guide and lead us in the way we are to go, we become part of the body of Christ.  Even more, we are welcomed into the family of God – a fellowship formed for all who follow our loving Father.

What an incredible inheritance we have as the Creator’s kids.  Though our eyes cannot yet perceive all that He has prepared for His children, we are granted glimpses, when we slow down and take in our surroundings.  Our very senses sing of the significance of our Savior.  Color, fragrance, sound, light, touch, taste, warmth – all but a preview of what awaits His sons and daughters in heaven.  Beyond the immediately observable, He places us in His family of believers.  He provides brothers and sisters to walk beside us to encourage, inspire, correct and comfort, as we were not intended to travel this trail alone.

Heavenly Father, thank You that You call us family as we come before You.  Thank You that You provide people to walk beside us as we pursue Your good and perfect will.  May we behave as Your body – Your beloved children, as we extend our arms and hearts in Your loving kindness to all who cross our path.  May glimpses of Your glory abound as we gather and go forth in Your Name.  Amen.

    “He provides brothers and sisters to walk beside us to encourage, inspire, correct and comfort, as we were not intended to travel this trail alone.”

    I love this. I love how true it is. When I look at the people God has blessed me with, how different they are, and what they bring to my life in the way of laughter, wisdom, inspiration, correction, I know that He gives according to His will. The friends I have, I have for a reason. The husband He blessed me with was maybe not the one I thought I wanted, but is the one I needed.

    Thank you for sharing your heart,
