I’ve been reading a lot of devotionals in YouVerison and posts from friends and family that not only wondered about things so I thought I’ll put to thoughts into it myself; as I have also wondered that myself for the past few months before moving to a new place. I thought to write this blog about it because it’s been weighing heavy on my heart and it also have a big effect on me.
Don’t we all want that? A place to belong? A big family that we feel that love, that closeness, that bond that is thicker then water? I always have this dream…….a waking dream….that we’re all a HUGE family of God where everyone is laughing, sharing, loving, singing, and dancing. Asking how are you doing and how are you really feeling. I always thought that’s what the church suppose to do? I know there is gonna be different point of view and other things…..but can’t we set aside that and just be together in harmony……like a big family who is by blood, creating memories of lasting friendships and love? I starts to feel sad when I don’t see that dream in our world today when everyone seem to argue and fight on who is right and what the world should be. We live in a broken world……that is in need of saving…..God’s saving grace. Only God’s saving grace can cause us to feel that peace, love, and forgiveness. I plead with God…..asking Him when will it be possible that everyone have that share view of the HUGE big family of God our Father and Jesus Christ……that not even the difference of our opinion keep us apart. That’s a reminder to me that we live in a broken world and that it’s our LONGING in our hearts to yearns for Heaven……..a Big family that we can become a part of…..the feeling of welcomeness (I know it’s not a word but come on I’m making a point here.) and love. We all know why I keep mentioning love…..it’s because that’s who God is. GOD IS LOVE.
Shouldn’t that be our goal……to create that feeling on earth? To create this is to help others see what Heaven would be like if we represent Christ in our lives and allow the Holy Spirit to guide us? To help the lost and those who are seeking something that’s missing in their lives? It have been in every one of us to seek something…..that missing piece that have been broken apart since the fall of man. Being a part of God’s family will bring peace, joy, and love. There’s no brokenness, no betrayal, no lies, no loneliness, and no pain. Maybe you say that’s not true…..for me it is….because I’ve been spending a lot of time with God to know who He is really apart from the world’s view.
I’m longing for a family that really display what God’s family is. That bond, that love with no question ask and freely given, no wall between anyone, having pictures taken for memories, playing games, doing fun activity and treating everyone like family and not an outsider. A family that would treat everyone fairly and equally and not a favoritism.
I pray the Holy Spirit will move many to cause all to feel that and to move in that direction that the whole world can see what Abba Father truly is……a Father with a HUGE heart for a family that treats everyone the same feeling, togetherness, no separation. A family that someone would catch a glimpse of what Heaven would be like. No argument, no seeing 2 sides of the story, and no difference.
Is it too much to ask? Is it too much to hope? To let someone see who God’s family is really like here on earth as in Heaven? To have every child of God’s family to treats everyone exactly the same? I know hope is still here, because God is here and He’s still moving. That’s all I want to say that is on my heart. Thank you for listening.
