Finding Family

‘I’m adopted, so being told i was infertile was tough’

It’s something I’m still dealing with, I won’t say getting through because there are still times when I feel discouraged. I’m dealing with the feelings that come with loneliness. I used to feel unworthy of human love.

I would think ‘how could another person, family or friend love me when my biological parents abandoned me?’ Whilst I longed to have the stability of a family, my ‘stored-up hurt’ and way of thinking made me self-destruct, losing countless friends and relationships.

There’s a verse that to this day encourages me, it says ‘The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness can never extinguish it‘ John‬ ‭1:5‬. I’m reminded that I will never be overcome by evil or succumb to darkness because I will always have the light, that glimmer of hope.

I want to encourage people never to give up hope, even when you feel lonely because God will never leave you alone. He cares when you cry, feel alone, even when you do stupid things. He’s our Father right? God literally says ‘No, I will not abandon you as orphans—I will come to you.’ John‬ ‭14:18‬.

God is the greatest family of all. Who can love us more than He (God) who created us and died (Jesus) that we might be set free John 3:6.
