"The miracle of adoption is that another woman carried my baby and I give new inheritance to her family line." - Sara
"This is the stage you realize God can put a vicious fight in you for a kid without your blood coursing through his veins." - Jen Hatmaker
Jesus stopped for me. A lowly, rebellious, disobedient child. He looked past my imperfections and my mistakes. He looked past my shame and my ignorance. & He looked upon me with love. He had a vicious fight in Him... for me, a disconnected sinner. He picked me up out of my fallenness, wrapped me in His arms, and now forever I am His.
If I am going to give my life to knowing Him and making Him known, then I must stop for the one. Loving the weak and forgotten isn't a suggestion -- it's a requirement. It's something we can't take lightly.
May He put that same vicious fight in me. May I see myself in the hurting, forgotten, and hopeless. May I be ever willing to fight for what is His.
