Day 92


Step-Parents Day

Sing to God! Sing praises to His name.
Exalt Him who rides on the clouds—
His name is Yahweh — and rejoice before Him.

5 A father of the fatherless
and a champion of widows
is God in His holy dwelling.

6 God provides homes for those who are deserted.
He leads out the prisoners to prosperity...

Psalm 68:4-6 (Holman Christian Standard Bible)

We celebrate Father's and Mother's day... and rightly so... but there is another focus that we should begin to celebrate... Step-Parent's Day.

The place of being a step-parent is often looked upon as some necessarily evil and difficult position... and though it may be a 'difficult' position.... it should not be seen as an evil position.

Verse 5 above: "A father of the fatherless..." if you will think for a moment... speaks to the taking up the mantle of a 'step-parent'... a role that Yahweh personally embraces...

"Even if my father and mother abandon me, the Lord cares for me."
Psalm 27:10 (Holman Christian Standard Bible)

Think about this for a moment... God embraces the position of a step-parent... should we not rethink some of our attitudes toward those that will step into a single parent's life... and cherish that single parent's child/children?

It is a very Godly place.
