Perfection is not part of God’s plan for marriage or family. The perfect mate, the perfect parent, simply does not exist. Only by the power of the Spirit of God living in us can we practice unconditional love with His wisdom to resolve our problems. Isaiah 58 gives this promise, “The Lord will guide you always; He will satisfy your needs in a sun-scorched land and will strengthen your frame. You will be like a well-watered garden, like a spring whose waters never fail.” There’s peace in that kind of promise.
GOD'S RECIPE FOR SUCCES
God’s Recipe for Success
It is known as the blended family… and too often it is characterized by barriers rather than bonds. A mother or father again says “I do,” and children from previous marriages now living together under the same roof can wish their parent had said… “I don’t.” Challenges abound… sharing coveted space, submitting to new rules and values, struggling to sympathize with shortcomings… so that the blended family trying to follow a recipe for reconciliation might resemble more a concoction of contention.
God has a heart… for the blended family. By the power of His Spirit He can break down walls and build lasting bonds, girded together by unconditional love.
