With the Peake’s having been away again it is time to get up to date on things. First, though some thoughts on something that our trip and something I read gave me pause for thought.


As one travels through country roads and farming areas one notices many abandoned vehicles and other pieces of equipment as well as buildings. They’re left out in a yard or field to rust and decay or in the case of buildings just fall apart. Abandonment also occurs with people. In many cases babies are abandoned or adopted out because biological parents aren’t interested or circumstances make it difficult to raise the child. Did you know there are over 14 million orphan children in the world and over 130 million who only have one parent. What is the result of abandonment or being orphaned? What is the impact on even babies who are taken from the mother at birth to be given to a foster or permanent family other than the biological one. Apparently even babies are aware of being given to another that isn’t the biological parent. Babies usually act in one of two ways. Either crying without ceasing or total silence. 

John 14:15 -18

open book

We are told that God will not leave us orphans; I will come to you. This portion also tells us that He will give us another helper (The Holy Spirit) to abide with us forever. These verses remind us that if we have accepted the truth that He dwells with us and will be with us no matter what.

Abandonment is a very sad situation but as Christians we can count on the Holy Spirit, our Savior Jesus and God the Father to be available 24/7 so for the Christian there is never a reason to feel abandoned. However as human beings many find themselves, even as Christians, feeling lonely and maybe even abandoned. Sometimes when a spouse or parent dies a form of abandonment sets in.

Deuteronomy 31:8 reminds us 

  1. And the Lord, He is the One who goes before you. He will be with you, He will not leave you nor forsake you; do not fear nor be dismayed.

Praise God for these promises. When all else fails God doesn’t.
