Belonging to the Family of G-D

Many of you know that I am adopted. I have shared this in my testimony. My parents explained this to me when I was seven years old. They told me that they were not able to have a child, so G-D blessed them with me. I now belonged to them. Several years later, my Father overheard me telling a friend that I was adopted. He spoke to me later about this. He said to me, "You are my child. I love you with all of my being. I would appreciate it very much that you do not tell people that you are adopted. Because when you became part of this family - you are a member of our"family." You are not an outsider looking in. I am your "Father" and your mother is your "Mother." My parents were G-D-fearing and G-D loving. I was reared to love and serve G-D. They were great examples to pattern my life by. My parent's love for me helped me to place my trust and my life in G-D's hands.
In my walk with the L-RD, I totally understand that I belong to Him. I know that He loves me, and He wants the very best for me. He has a plan for my life.
It was easy to surrender my life to Him. I understood what it meant when it says in
G-D's word that I have been adopted into His family. I am no longer an outsider looking in. I am a member of the family. All of the blessings in G-D's word are mine. Because of His love for me, I live my life to honor Him.
I know that this is not the case for everyone. Some have trust issues due to circumstances they have been through. They do not understand the love that G-D has for them because they have not experienced this within their own family. I pray that G-D will help you to overcome this. G-D loves you. He created you. He knows you inside and out. Nothing about you is hidden from Him. He wants you to know that you belong to His family. He wants a relationship with you. No matter what you do - He will always be there for you.
"Run to Him"; "Seek His Face"; and "Put Your Trust In Him." He Will Restore You. You will soon understand His love for you.
"But in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Messiah Yeshua our Lord." Romans 8:37-39 TLV
"Trust in Adonai with all your heart, lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make your paths straight." Proverbs 3:5-6 TLV
