How do I reconcile family relationships?

A user on our mobile app asked,

“I’m so hurt to be dealing with being shut out by family for so long and now officially they have said they are taking a break indefinitely from seeing us. How do you live with this pain? Reconciliation takes two parties. We have tried and tried. I don’t see how we can do anything to breathe new life into this relationship. We have been praying for 8 years. To come to this point now after all that trying, praying, and loving them every way we can is heartbreaking. In a time of full time study for ministry, we are living on fresh air with no practical help. Psalm 121 is the current refrain in my head, ‘My help comes from the Lord.’ But it’s so hard to see where that is right now.”
