Behold what manner of love the Father has bestowed on us, that we should be called children of God! Therefore the world does not know us, because it did not know Him.” - I John 3:1
I have a lot of family, whom I love dearly. I have my dad’s family, mom’s family, my stepdad’s family, and my “adopted” family. Seriously, I am blessed to have so many people who love and care about me. My “adopted” family didn’t really legally adopt me but they adopted me in their hearts. I have a second pair of parents, two sisters, a brother, sister-in-law, brothers-in-law, grandmas and papas, aunts and uncles, lots of cousins, and nieces and nephews. All of which are of no blood relation to me and didn’t need a piece of paper to call me their daughter, sister, granddaughter, niece, sister-in-law, cousin, or auntie. It’s been this way with them my whole life. My blood families are awesome! There’s just something really cool about being picked to be a part of a family.
I know not everyone grew up with a great family. Not everyone had parents that treated them right or that could be counted on. Not everyone grew up knowing the feeling of being supported, encouraged, or even loved. But, the good news is that we all can have a Father who is all of those things and more! He wants to support you, encourage you, cheer you on, pick you up when you fall, lovingly correct you when you need it, listen, wipe away your tears, heal your hurts, and most of all love you. And get this, He already has a Baby Book of you! He’s been with you every second. He even has your future in that book too. If you haven’t told Him that you want Him to be the Lord and Savior of your life, know that He’s waiting. You are so precious to Him because you are His child.
