Hello Beloved! We are at the close of our first collaboration with Chris of Chris's Kitchen and we hope that the recipes and reflections that have characterized this series have been a blessing to you. We greet you today with a recipe we encourage you to make with the family our Father has intentionally and lovingly knit together for you.
Family is real work. And real work is both challenging and beautiful. In our families we are gifted opportunity after opportunity to press into His Spirit and embrace the graciousness of our Savior. In our families are both encouragers and tools for pruning. In our families are people God has purposed us to love. This Thanksgiving, prepare your hearts by praying very intentionally for the quality of your familial relationships. Pray especially for reconciliation and healing where there has been division and hurt. God is able. God is willing. He is for your family.
Use the prayer below as a starting point:
