God Doesn’t Know Hopeless

god

History is made.

Day in and day out, year after year.

A legacy is built.

Traditions abound.

Lives are changed.

Character is molded.

Babies are born, individuals die.

The families that we grow up in, shape us.

They help to make us who we are.

*

Yet to all who received him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God— John 1:12 NIV

To be known.

To count.

To be a part.

Never abandoned.

Never hurt by Him.

With God, there are no orphans.

No homeless.

No hopeless.

No messed up, mixed up relationships.

No embarrassment. No secrets.

For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.  For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him.  John 3:16-17  NIV

God longs for each of us to join His family…to know His Son.

No one…..

NO ONE, is out of the reach of His grace.

  1. Dawn this is excellent. Thank you so much for sharing this. So encouraging. I find that it is so difficult to see God as the caring parent he really is as opposed to through the lens of the families we grew up with. No matter how amazing our families were-because of the Fall–it is inevitable for some wounding to come out of it. So the shift from viewing God as all-loving and not through the lens of the possible failures our families may have suffered is truly the sign of growth in God. Thank God that we have the journey on which to do so.
