Where is your family.........the one that once claimed you?

The Mother who loved you and did all she could do.

The Daddy who protected you with all of his being;

Watching over you at all times even without your seeing.

The little sister who teased you, but looked up to you in every way;

If she could only see you now........what do you think she would say?

The older brother who always picked on you and made you so mad;

He’d give anything to get you back, to have what you two had.

When was the last time you ate?.............you look awfully drawn and gaunt;

Alcohol and drugs are your food and comfort, is this the life you want?

You live in a dog-eat-dog society, doing anything just to survive;

That’s not the life God intended for you, He wants all His’ children to be alive!

You feel so dirty in your soul that you can’t find your way out;

Satan has taken you where he wants you.......he planted that seed of doubt.

Christ is standing at the door knocking, waiting for you to open it up;

Invite Him into your heart to reside and let Him overflow your cup.

That family that use to claim you, will gladly claim you once more;

They have been waiting all this time for you to walk through the door.

Swallow your sinful pride, and let God take control;

He will lead you back to all you knew, He will bring you back into His’ fold.
