Family of God

We all long to belong
To someone or something
We long to be known
To be accepted and loved

Some people are born into wonderful families
Full of love and laughter and joy
But others experience something quite different
Where fear, neglect, and abuse threaten to destroy

There is a place where we all can belong
A place we can find the love that we seek
God is waiting to welcome us into his family
Everyone’s invited, the strong and the weak

God is the Father of the whole human family
Everyone is included, he deeply loves each one
God invites us to be adopted into his own family
Simply accept his love shown through Jesus, his Son

God doesn’t want anyone to feel like an outsider
He made us, and loves us, and we can belong
But we have to choose to join God’s family
And accept God’s invitation, we have to want to belong

See what love the Father has given us, that we should be called children of God; and
that is what we are.
(1 John 3:1)
