God Gives Us Brothers and Sisters f

God Gives Us Brothers and Sisters For A Reason!


God gives us brothers and sisters for a reason!

As children, we have each other, throughout the seasons!


We laugh and play together and do all sorts of things…

Often not realizing what the future of life brings!


As kids, we often share whatever life may give us!

And stick together, no matter what trials may face us!


But, as we grow older, too often, we part separate ways.

And lose any contact with each other for countless days!


I’ve seen all kinds of things tear families all apart.

Often, there’s some kind of

 unforgiveness of the heart!


If you, and your siblings, have reached a separation…

May you seek Jesus for a

 Godly reconciliation!


As family, whatever divides, must be lifted up in prayer!

Where two or three are gathered…  God is there!


Just think about what the family unit has become!

The love of Jesus must be what binds us all as one!


Getting along as a family, is more than just a “feeling!”

The blood of Christ needs to bring an “inner healing!”


The family that each of us have,

 may not be here tomorrow!

Are you one who’s holding on to bitterness and sorrow?


May the words of Christ help us all to get along!

That through HIM, our families

will be STRONG!

About the Poet
I and my wife have 4 grown children and currently live in the Pacific Northwest. I've spent much of my life doing volunteer work in the food distribution for the needy among local churches. Many of the poems I've written are a reflection of times of adversity as a reminder of God's love and faithfulness. I've found many opportunities to share my poems with those who are hurting and discouraged. I'm thankful for the reports of many of the poems touching people's lives. I hope that the poems included on Wordchimes will touch and bless your life too!
