Family disassociation

I'm a 55 year old woman with multiple mental illnesses,& a major traumatic brain injury who found God when I was 20.My father died when I was 3,& Mama remarried when I was 5.My sister got along well with my stepfather because she was 3 years older than I, & could understand. I couldn't,& my withdrawal from my stepfather caused him to give me up.He turned this over time into the belief that from age 5 I was trying to make my mama divorce him.I had no male role model & made a mess of my life with men.With the genetics and nurture problems,our family life was less than healthy. Eventually I married had a beautiful baby girl, but that didn't last.After we divorced I found out about the mental problem which only intensified with each year.Coming & going away from God didn't help.Now I'm holding on tight to Him & won't let go.But the family I love is shattered between the anger of my stepfather & the resentment my sister has over our relationship over the years.There can be forgiveness without reconciliation but not reconciliation without forgiveness.Lord help me accept their boundaries,forgive & let go.Please,dear God,help me make a new family in a church my sister & I go to where she looks thru me as if I was not even there.Help me.

Pam, You keep seeking

Pam,
You keep seeking the Lord and ALWAYS KNOW that you are NEVER ALONE. God is always with you. Even when times get tough and we aren't sure what is happening or why He has our life in this place we always have to remember that God always has a plan and his plan is always right. You just keep praying and He will be listening just like the rest of us here. The illnesses that you have are difficult but you have to give those stressors to God and know that He will take those worries from you and help you along the way. Jesus is the ultimate giver. He is our peace, comfort and strength.

Philippians 4:6-7 do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
