I’ll never understand why people choose to leave behind people who really care about them and love them. People would rather stay comfortably blind, living in depression ( based on fear or anxiety, anger, and guilt) pretending to be happy with those who use them, abuse them, and turn their backs on them as soon as they stop getting their way. Most people have no desire to obey God, and no desire to know the truth. They are afraid. They’d rather be like an ostrich burying its head in the sand.
Why settle, when there’s so much joy and freedom in Christ? So many are orphans, even when their parents are still alive. The Silver Lining is God’s promised adoption through His son, Jesus Christ. No one has to be left fatherless! God fills in the gaps where we have been lacking in the love that should have been given to us. Let Him fill the empty spaces. He’s the perfect parent for His children who follow Him! He never abandons or abuses us, and He never, ever lies to us!
” ‘If you love me, keep my commands. And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another advocate to help you and be with you forever— the Spirit of truth. The world cannot accept him, because it neither sees him nor knows him. But you know him, for he lives with you and will be in you. I will not leave you as orphans; I will come to you.’ ”
John 14: 15-18
