We must turn to our loved ones in those moments of nostalgia and negative memories. Start appreciating your family and loved ones today by reading the following article.
"In their hearts humans plan their course, but the Lord establishes their steps." Proverbs 16:9
If we manage to be very clear that the Holy Spirit proposes family communion and defines it as the most important thing we have and that we must take care of, then we must build strong ties between family.
We will be very clear that these people are loved ones who helped us at all times, family members, friends, friends, people who gave us their word of encouragement, helped us to think in other ways.
It turns out that these people make up our support network.
"The Lord will vindicate me; your love, Lord, endures forever— do not abandon the works of your hands." Psalms 138:8
Learning from each other, keeping in mind that each reality is different and that we live according to the will of the Heavenly Father places us in a unique and beautiful destiny.
The key to keep the family united and in communion is dialogue, communication and respect. Surely we have differences of thought and perception of life. Families are made up of people who learn, make mistakes and many times recognize their errors through forgiveness.
Harmony and empathy will be fundamental allies so that we can integrate all the loved ones and we must at least try to approach each member from a merciful place, as Jesus did with all his disciples.
"But from everlasting to everlasting the Lord’s love is with those who fear him, and his righteousness with their children’s children— with those who keep his covenant and remember to obey his precepts." Psalm 103:17-18
We should try to approach and take an interest in the issues and questions that overwhelm those around us. Perhaps we can help them by giving our views and our hand. One never knows if a person needs help, sometimes the Lord wants us to be instruments of healing for those most in need.
Many times the lack of communication or family disconnection is due to individual routines and daily obligations that make us forget the most important thing: love.
"“Can a mother forget the baby at her breast and have no compassion on the child she has borne? Though she may forget, I will not forget you! See, I have engraved you on the palms of my hands; your walls are ever before me." Isaiah 49:15-16
To be able to build a bridge that will unite the hearts of these people will give us a vital force full of hope and faith. Creating routines of prayer, Bible reading or simply sharing a passage or verse, will give us a unique opportunity, creating a space for dialogue, learning and connection with the Holy Spirit.
Our Heavenly Father will guide us at all times and wants us to get closer to those people in the family that we must forgive, that we have to recover and link again.
