Release The Chains
Find StepFamily Joy
Often times we will see in blended families, an unseen stronghold holding the family back from God's wish and desire, and theirs too, to 'bond' and have a truly loving and peaceful family. A Dad we are coaching asked me the other day..."What do you mean 'stronghold'?" I explained to him that there was something I've observed over a period of time in his new family's setting. Something that, based on our personal and professional experience, was holding his family back. The Bible speaks of that as 'discernment', or a sense of something or an atmosphere that surrounds a person or situation. This Dad said "Gosh, if I don't know what it is, how are we going to work through it?". I applauded him because he's got the right attitude. He's Looking UP! We can tear down strongholds in a family with clear awareness, God's help and strength, and some genuine effort in your marriage and family.
Let's get back to just what is a stronghold, as indeed you might ask?
I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly.
We come to you now and ask "Are there any strongholds impacting your marriage, family and stepfamily situation that God needs to work on?" Do you feel like something is working to destroy your marriage, a child or your whole family?
