All I wanted was a family. My husband's drunken friends were more important to him than his family. Today, I have a family, and I owe it all to...

I grew up in a broken home where no one had anything nice to say. Everything was negative. It was an abusive family, if you want to call it a 'family.' Since I was brought up in a broken and abusive home, I began searching for a family not like my own.

At fifteen years old, I got pregnant and had a son. I graduated from school, and I married my baby's father. We had two more children.

I thought now that I had a 'family,' I was set. However, that was not the case. My husband's drunken friends were more important to him than his family.

I started going to college, working a job, and trying to manage with a husband, children, and house. My marriage began falling apart, and when I couldn't take it anymore, I left.

Now, I was raising three children, going to college, and working two jobs in order to provide for all of us. All I wanted was a family - a mother, a father, and children that would do things together, have love, and communicate. I was out there looking for all that, but I didn't have it. I had my children, but I was missing a complete family.

I was also doing things that I shouldn't have been doing. Finally, I met someone and started living with him. I felt that I had the 'family' that I was looking for, but there was still something missing in my life.

It was Christ. He wanted to be a part of my life. I asked Christ to come into my life, and He changed me. He wasn't just a part of my family, He became my life.

Now, not only do I have a loving husband, but I also have the closeness to my children, the love, the communication, and other family I longed for.

I owe it all to Jesus Christ because I let Him be the head of my family.

Are you missing a family? Let Christ into your life, and He will give you all the family you want. God has blessed me with lots of family members.

Today, I want to invite you to be a part of my family. If you are the victim of an abusive, negative, broken family or relationship, call out for help today. Jesus Christ wants you to be a part of His family. He's the best friend you could ever have. Allow Him to heal your whole heart right now.


Real Life Stories - Chapter 46:



Dear Reader - are you at peace with God?  If not, you can be.  Do you know what awaits you when you die?  You can have the assurance from God that heaven will be your home, if you would like to be certain.  Either Jesus Christ died for yours sins, or He didn't (He did!).  Are you prepared to stand before God on the Judgment Day and tell Him that you didn't need the shed blood of Jesus Christ on the Cross to have your sins forgiven and get in right-standing with God?  We plead with you ... please don't make such a tragic mistake.

To get to know God; to be at peace with God; to have your sins forgiven; to make certain heaven will be your home for eternity; to make certain that you are in right-standing with God right now ... please click here to help understand the importance of being reconciled to God.  What you do about being reconciled to God will determine where you will spend eternity, precious one.  Your decision to be reconciled to God is the most important decision you'll ever make in this life.
