The adoption process for these two Haitian children took two years… Praise God, they joined their new family this week :)
“He cares for the broken hearted and binds up their wounds… He sets the lonely in families…” Isaiah
He is faithful.
Predestined for adoption to son and daughter-ship… Ephesians 1.
You are God’s own masterpiece! That means you are not ordinary or average; you are a one-of-a-kind original. When God created you, He went to great lengths to make you exactly the way He wanted you to be. He gave you the right personality, the right gifts, the right talents, and the right connections to do exactly what He’s called you to do. The question is: do you recognize the treasure you possess?
Today, don’t settle for living a mediocre existence. Unlock the hidden treasures inside of you. Every morning when you get out of bed, remind yourself, I am a masterpiece. I am handpicked by God, and I am a person of extreme value and significance. Remember, you are an original—you’re not meant to be like everyone else; God designed you the way you are for a specific purpose. Everything about you is unique, and every detail about you matters. Receive His love today because you are His most prized treasure!
And it means that you’re freaking good-looking! God doesn’t make trash, He doesn’t even make ugly people! Song of Solomon 4:7. God says you’re good looking, and He never lies—- it’s the truth! Anyone who says different is LYING.
Jesus’s arms always were, always are, and always will be open. From the moment He came down to Earth, to His final breath on the cross, to His resurrection in the garden, to your darkest moments and your best days— He has been there for you all the time— holding His arms open wide for you, saying, “I love you” with every breath.
These shoes are more than five years old, carries me through my first two years with God, and I couldn’t bear to part with them until a week ago.
The miracle of these shoes is that everyone who sees them gets a slice of the Gospel— everyone from the people in grocery stores to the kids at school to strangers at the mall to neighbors. Verses from Isaiah are written on the sides and soles.
Gives a new meaning to putting on the shoes of the Gospel of peace… Beautiful on the mountains are the feet of those who bring Good News.
God is love. Without Him, you will feel empty, lost, and meaningless. Even if you have a girlfriend, boyfriend, partner, spouse, or whatever. Because God’s love is perfect, and humans are imperfect.
Jesus loves you.
God is love. God showed how much he loved us by sending his one and only Son into the world so that we might have eternal life through him. This is real love—not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as a sacrifice to take away our sins. (1 John 4:8-10 NLT)
