Welcome to another week of the Hive Open Mic and this would be my presentation for week 121 with the theme titled “Amor de Familia” which in English translation means “Family's Love”.
The truth is that God wants the best for us and has given us a wonderful family where love abounds. A family that understands each other and is always looking out for each other.
The first thing that came to my mind was a family who found love in the end after going through a lot and while they meet Jesus, things turned around.
Choosing Matthew West's song wasn't by mistake because this song talks about GENERATIONAL BAGGAGE in some families.
Every family want to experience beautiful things together but there are some bad legacies like violence, mental illness, anger etc that have been left by their forefathers. They don't seem to find solutions to the problem so it doesn't keep continuing and extending to generations.
One thing about generational curse or baggage is that the innocent also suffers from it. They come to life to continue the fight and struggle they met. Something they do not know how it happened or how it came about.
When they encounter Jesus Christ, He brought hope and a new life to them and had to change the legacy because He doesn't want them to keep going that way and keep suffering.
I watched a movie last night and it's all about a young man who kept getting bad luck everywhere he went. Everything kept falling and he was about to give up when he met an old man who revealed the source of his problem to him. He was told to go to Jesus' feet and ask for mercy.
The man didn't know what his past generations has done and he was now suffering what he didn't know of. If he had accepted his fate and embraced the legacy being left for him, he would have to extend it and that would go on to as many new generations until someone stands up to revoke the curse.
When a family is doing fine, love will abound and there would be happiness. I hope we have a great family with Christ being the center of it all.
Thanks for reading and watching
