Family. There is what God ideally wanted and created family to be, then there is exceptional family by His love and mercy through sin. For those of you who weren’t raised in an ideal family situation, but have GOOD people in your life who you can see has a mother/father/brother/etc-figured in your life, you have family. God loves His children so much that He will send the right people at the right times (aka, the times He knows is right, since He is our ultimate parent and knows what’s best for us) to be our “family.” And for those who consistently post online “no one cares about me,” that’s a dark feeling to feel - have felt it myself many tines before. But have faith, stay strong, and keep your eyes open. You never know who’d be ready to “adopt” you. Christ ALWAYS cares even when it seems as though the ones around you don’t. Lean on Him as much as possible. He’ll lead you to “family.” For those of us in an “ideal” family situation should really count our blessings. We’re lucky to have both parents, happily married, siblings that love us, all close in our relationships with each other, supportive, etc… Not only should we count our blessings, but we should be examples, reaching out to those in situations like the ones mentioned above. We ought not only take notice, but take action, allow Christ love to shine through us and for them to understand and experience “family.”
"Beloved, let us love one another… For GOD is love." -1 John 4:7, 8.
