Adopted: Children of God (with music video)

2 02 2011

In our small group last night we talked about our adoption into the family of God. This is a powerful picture to me of who all people are apart from the forgiveness Christ offers.

ALONE.

DESPERATE.

WITHOUT LOVE.

ORPHANED.

FATHERLESS.

DESPISED.

But through Christ, we can be called the children of God. What better Father is there? This is a powerful picture of those who have received forgiveness of sins.

ACCEPTED.

SATISFIED.

WITH LOVE.

ADOPTED.

FATHERED.

WELCOME.

Around the world children are crying. They have no home. Their parents cannot afford to provide food or other basic necessities. They need families. There is a biblical mandate to care for orphans. 163 000 000 children around the world are orphans. In Sarnia there are only 92 foster homes and there is continuous need for more.

What can be done? Well to start, get informed by viewing the following forum on orphans and adoption.

Our Adoption Journey

7 05 2010

Daph and I recently began rejoicing in the news that she is pregnant with our third child! This news also has some sadness to it because we have been in the adoption thought process for years. It felt as though we were getting really close to making our adoption official.

Then God surprised us! God’s surprises are good surprises. We made our plans, God changed them. When things don’t go as planned, we can trust that God knows best.

The heart of man plans his way, but the LORD establishes his steps. –Proverbs 16:9

Our plan is to adopt. The steps we’re taking to get there is not what we expected. We’re in the middle of this journey now. Our child is due in October. That means in order to adopt we still have to wait another year and half after that. WAIT.

So while we’re waiting, we’re still praying and hurting for orphans around the world. What can we do about their plight? It seems so monumental. Maybe someone reading this will also consider their role for children without families. Consider the video below.
