Today the lump in my throat grew bigger with every child who got added.
Today tears flowed for the ones who are without hope.
Today I asked the Father so many times, “Who will rescue the least of these?”
Today I noticed that there were almost 80,000 page views on this post simply because people shared the link. I could not help but think about how incredible it would be if the same number viewed this post–how much more of a chance they would have of being CHOSEN if more people saw their faces and read their stories.
Today I thought about the church–and felt a sadness that the message of the orphan is not being preached more.
Today I counted 95 children listed. That means 95 families urgently needed to save every child on that list. Surely that’s not impossible? According to ABC News 83% of people in America identify themselves as Christians. All we need are 95 families to take up the command to care for the orphan in this way.
Today I wished there was a way that we could go. I would do it in a heartbeat if I could.
Today I looked at my four adopted daughters–and was so deeply grateful that they are here with us.
Today I looked at each and every precious face listed…and prayed with everything in me.
Today I felt completely hopeless to do more.
Today I remembered the statistic…95% of these frail children perish in foreign orphanages because they simply cannot survive the horrendous conditions.
Today I wondered how many people would be willing to share their sweet faces, their stories in the hope that they would be found.
Today my heart ached.
Today I wanted to shout from the tallest rooftops, “GIVE THEM A CHANCE! THEY WILL ASTOUND YOU, AMAZE YOU. THEY WILL BE ONE OF YOUR GREATEST TREASURES ON THIS EARTH. PLEASE, I’M BEGGING YOU…GIVE THEM A CHANCE AT LIFE!”
Today I wondered how many people would turn away from such a desperate need. Sometimes it’s easier to turn a blind eye.
Today I could not help but think about what a blessing from the Lord adoption truly is.
Today I remembered how faithful the Father was to provide fully for our four adoptions. How faithful He is to raise the RANSOM.
Today I felt like we are fighting a losing battle.
Today I reminded myself that each and every child rescued is such a glorious victory in the kingdom of God–a child being snatched out of darkness and brought into His glorious light.
Today I remembered what a spiritual battle this is for the lives of children! How the enemy would love to keep them where they are…without hope! But my God is mighty to save!
Today I read the word “transferred” too many times.
Today God gave me a Scripture in a version I had never read before….
“Rescue the perishing; don’t hesitate to step in and help. If you say, “Hey, that’s none of my business,” will that get you off the hook? Someone is watching you closely, you know— Someone not impressed with weak excuses.” (Proverbs 24:11-12 The Message)
Please, friends…these children urgently need your help. Can you please help by sharing the stories of these beautiful angels? Many of them have literally been given a death sentence. A mental asylum is a horrendous place for anyone to be sent to…can you even imagine a child going there? Oh my goodness! My heart cannot fathom it. The conditions they are forced to live in are so heinous.
Please share in the hope and prayer that every single one of these children WILL be chosen soon. Nothing is impossible!
