Families and the Holidays
Why should we look at this stuff...
You are here
Your family is here
-a couple hubcaps
-3 working windows
-nice paint
-an uncracked dashboard
-1 floor mat
-a non oil stained trunk
+an oil leak
+a phantom coolant leak
+a couple strange knocks
+a grumpy transmission
=our car!
knowing what we didn't have and feeling the
loss connects us to our longing for God


lack of father+feeling the loss=
longing for GOD as my Father
*note the strange pattern of cutting up pictures in my family
*yes, I long for pizza... I have a problem
Out of the depths I cry to you O Lord;
O Lord, hear my voice.
Let your ears be attentive to my cry for mercy
If you, O Lord, kept a record
of sins, O Lord, who could stand?
But with you there is forgiveness;
there you are feared.
I wait for the Lord, my soul waits,
and in his word I put my hope.
My soul waits for the Lord
more than the watchmen wait for the morning.
more than the watchmen wait for the morning.
So, what do we do with this stuff...
in our relationship with our family
in our relationship with God
name it
feel what it means to you
thank your family members for it
cultivate it in the family
pass it on to your own family
name it before God
thank God for the blessing
pray for it to be passed on
pray for oppourtunities to spread the blessing
name it
feel the loss it has created
repent of your part in it
confront family members about it
watch for the theme in your family
name it before God
repent for your part in it
name how it has impacted you
pray for it to not be passed on
pray for healing of yourself
pray for healing in your family
pray for it to not be passed on
if I find in myself a desire which my family
cannot satisfy, my only conclusion is that I was made for another family.

Eph. 4:14-21
