Words Of Encouragement For Broken Families
Family is a gift from God.
When we are born and over the course of our lives, God attaches us to people that make living worth it. Having people to call your very own is priceless.
But the devil always tries to plant seeds of discord whenever he notices love and unity among a group of people.
God urges us to be aware of his tricks and traps, in 2 Corinthians 2:11, and to not give him any room, in Ephesians 4:27.
Embracing the differences and uniqueness in our characters, temperaments, mindsets and preferences will ease the tension.
Our differences can make us stronger, because one’s area of weakness is another’s strength and vice versa.
God brought us together to achieve harmony on earth and make each of our lives better, fuller and richer because of the bond of family.
We must strive to emulate the unconditional love of our Heavenly Father towards each and every one of us.
Jesus Christ loved us to the point of death. Love is sacrificial.
We must be willing and ready to make sacrifices for one another whenever the need arises.

Bring to the memory of each and every one of us the moments of peace and togetherness we once shared.
According to Your Word,
And be kind to one another, tender hearted, forgiving each other, just as God also in Christ forgave you. Ephesians 4:32

Help us to see one other through Your eyes so that we can show true mercy, compassion, and love at all times.

Let everything that does not glorify You be uprooted from this family, even according to Your promise in Matthew 15:13. Anger, jealousy, hatred, malice, rebellion, vengeance, regret, be-gone!

According to Your promise in Joel 2:25,
I will restore to you the years that the swarming locust has eaten, the great locust, the grasshopper, and the caterpillar, my great army, which I sent among you. Joel 2:25

Lord, strengthen the bond of this family. Help us to love and tolerate one other. Teach us to work in unity, as Your Body.
