If we were to have coffee today, you would see me beaming with joy. I would also have a party crasher with me. I would tell you that he was our new foster baby and you would be amazed out how beautiful and well behaved he is.
I would tell you how our prayer life lately has been consumed with him and his birth parents. How we are praying relentlessly for them. I would also ask you to be praying for them. That God would do a work in all of them. That He would use this.
If we were to sit down for coffee, I would tell you how my little family is being strengthened and blessed more than we could have imagined. I would talk to you about how every time we think we are doing something to bless someone else, to help someone in need, God turns around and uses it to do a work in us. He always seems to use our ministry to minister to us.
If we were to sit down for coffee, I would encourage you to pursue something that God has put on your heart. I would tell you that any fears you have, He will conquer. That any doubts you have, He will cover. Any burdens the call may have, He will carry.
When we go into our coffee date, I may not know where you are in your walk. I probably wouldn't know the call that God has put on your heart. What I would know is that whatever it is and where ever you are, God will walk you through it. He will carry you through it.
When we began this journey, I had so many fears. Some of them I am still facing. I know this is not an easy road God has called us to. But every crossroad we have come to thus far, God has been there. He has kept me strong. He has made me able. Every thing I feared of our first placement, although I cannot share details, has been put in His hands. And can I tell you, He has taken care of it all? Because He has.
If we sat down for coffee, I would tell you how silly I feel for ever doubting God. For ever thinking that He was crazy for calling ME to be a foster mom. The love I feel for this child is insane. The love I feel for his birth parents is so strong. I want to be here not only for this baby but for his parents.
If we sat down for coffee, I would remind you to walk and talk and live for Jesus. To follow His will and you will be blown away at how He will use it. How He will use you.
After I went on and on, I would ask you, what is God putting on your heart? So what is it? Will you share? Feel free to comment here, or email me. I would love to chat and to pray for you.
