I have asked myself, “Who is my real support? 


Who has stood by me and continues to do so? 


Who is a positive presence in my life? 


Who has eased my journey?” 


The answer is God. 


God is my healer, 


God makes a way out of no way, 


God loves me, 


God is able to put every effort 


of the enemy to an open shame, 


God knows my needs before I ask,


and when I asked God to forgive me 


of my sins, come into my heart, 


and be the Lord of my life, 


I became a part of God's family.



Yes... God is. 



God is my Pilot... I am the passenger.


With God as our Guide… 


evil doer’s are spinning their wheels. 


They may have hoards of helpers, 


but... 


one with God is the majority.

“More pain than we know must have been 


behind Jesus’s words, 


‘A prophet is not without honor except 


in His hometown and in His own household.’”


According to John, 


“Not even His brothers believed in Him” 


(John 7:5).

Jesus said, “Whoever loves father or mother more


 than Me is not worthy of Me, and whoever loves


son or daughter more than Me is not worthy of Me”


(Matthew 10:37; see also Luke 14:26). 


He taught the closest relationships in His life 


weren’t with His physical family, but 


His Spiritual family. 


Matthew 12:46-50 records: 


While He was still speaking to the people, behold, 


His mother and His brothers stood outside, asking to 


speak to Him. But He replied to the man who told Him, 


“Who is My mother, 


and who are My brothers?”


 And stretching out His hand toward His disciples, 


He said, “Here are My mother and My brothers! 


For whoever does the will of My Father in heaven 


is My brother and sister and mother.”


Those who had lived with Jesus 


for 30 years 


really did not know Him.

But after his resurrection and ascension, 


there they are in the upper room 


worshiping Him as God 


(Acts 1:14).


Being a part of the family of God is 

the greatest blessing bestowed 

upon believers and one that should 

drive us to our knees in humble adoration. 

We can never do anything to deserve it 

 for it is His gift of love, mercy, and grace to us, 

yet, we are called to become sons and daughters of 

the Living God 



Our greatest love and loyalty 

has to be reserved for God and God alone.


It is a great privilege to



choose God

 


over everyone else.



The world, the winds of life, the conflicts, 


the pressures of life, and sometimes 


our family betrayals, will try to break us, 


but God has a way of taking all of the broken pieces 


of our lives and He uses them 


to make us more resilient and stronger in Spirit. 



Our present sufferings do not define us.


They are just shards of brokenness that God will use


to lovingly refine our beauty. 



The transformation from broken into beautiful 


is neither easy nor instantaneous. 


It demands a yielded heart and can be quite painful, 


but it comes with great reward. 



Thank You, God, for taking all of our broken pieces...


our scars, rejections, insecurities, betrayals, and failures...


and turning those broken pieces into 


Your Masterpieces.


Thank You, Father God, 


for allowing us to keep company with You.
