Sometimes in adoption...scratch that! Let's start over.
In adoption, people like to tell you horror stories! Some story about their dog's aunt's cousin who adopted and it was a disaster. You know the one! "Yah, I like totally know this family that waited 10 years for their child. Then the world exploded and everything caught on fire!" ;)
You know the one...you know, because, for some reason, we like to tell the worst stories about everything. May we all commit to being self aware enough to stop ourselves before we tell another one. Who's with me?
But this last weekend, people rocked the stories! Do you know Psalm 66:15?
"Come close (I insert close) and hear, all you who fear God, and I will tell what he has done for me!"
Yes!!!! I want to hear.
Friday, literally at 5:03, an adopted father said "I know you want to get home, but can I tell you the miracles God did in my son's adoption?"
Then Saturday, my brother and sis-in-law said "let us tell you how Jesus showed up for us!"
Yes, Jesus! Show up for Issa like that.
Sunday, a friend at church said "Kara, when I was in Africa, let me tell you what God did...I know he sent an angel to move the file!"
Yep, Jesus! That's what I want you to do on June 2nd!
People! THIS is what families need to hear. We NEED to hear your stories of how Jesus showed up for your family. Maybe you don't have adoption miracles to share, but, if Jesus has ever shown up for you, we need the story!
Tell us what God has done for you. Can I get an amen?!
