Cup or two of Max

2 Corinthians 6:18

"I will be your father, and you will be my sons and daughters, says the Lord Almighty."

From - He Still Moves Stones

We can't control the way our family responds to us. When it comes to the behavior of others towards us, our hands are tied. We have to move beyond the naive expectation that if we do good people will treat us right. The fact is they may and they may not.... Let God give you what your family doesn't. If your earthly father doesn't affirm you, then let your heavenly Father take his place.... (And) don't lose heart. God still changes families.

Acts 1:14

"They all continued praying together with some women, including Mary the mother of Jesus, and Jesus' brothers."

From - He Still Moves Stones

God has proven himself as a faithful father. Now it falls to us to be trusting children. Let God give you what your family doesn't. Let him fill the void others have left. Rely upon him for your affirmation and encouragement. Look at Paul's words: "you are God's child, and God will give you the blessing he promised, because you are his child" (Galatians 4:7).
