Are you walking through life all alone, missing out on any sense of family? Do you have a family that you were born into, but you lack any sense of being a family? Have you had a mother or father pass away, or worse they just walked away without seeming to care about you? Did your spouse pass away, leaving you with an intense loneliness and a deep sense of vulnerability?
Whatever the tragic cause of your feelings of loneliness, abandonment, and a void of family love and affection, there is an encouraging hope to be had.
“A father to the fatherless, a defender of widows, is God in His holy dwelling. God sets the lonely in families…”
~ Psalm 68:5-6
It is God’s compassionate passion that no one remains alone; He has a passion for your family life! He is the ultimate master of family replacements!
We do not understand why everything bad happens in life, but one thing that can be done about the future is to pray! Fervently, sincerely, and constantly ask the Lord your God to fulfill His compassionate passion by placing you in a family of His excellent choosing.
I have watched countless fatherless and motherless kids be re-parented by a godly, loving saint of God; I have watched countless widows and widowers be re-married with a godly, loving saint of God; I have seen the compassionate passion of God be fulfilled in the lives of His people.
For the time being, while in your state of loneliness and vulnerability, be patient, be prayerful, and be hopeful. God has a family for you!
