They say there’s “no place like home.” Maybe that’s the way you feel and you can’t wait to get there for Thanksgiving. Or maybe you’re nervous about going home.
There’s no one who knows you better than your family. That can be a good thing, and then it can be a tough thing because they know it all…the successes and the failures.
Read this from the Daily Word today and it encouraged me:
“Whatever the current dynamic in your family…remain open and willing to love unconditionally. If there is disharmony or strife, bring those concerns to prayer. Acknowledge your own role and has for God’s help to guide you. Act in wise ways with love and understanding.
Even when you don’t understand everyone’s actions or attitudes, you can see your family as children of God, expressions of God’s love.”
So whether it’s something you’ve done and you’re nervous to face your family, or maybe someone has done something to you and you haven’t been able to let it go.
Maybe this year you can let it go. God does for you and for them.
Sit down and play monopoly together and give everyone a “Get out of Jail Free” card.
