My husband and I were foster parents for 6 years. We adopted a 3 year old. She is 8 now and keeps me young or maybe old! Lol. She is a blessing to us. There are also challenges that come along with it. Foster children that are older have already been molded within the first 3 years of their life. She loves us but also feels the void of her birth parents not being there. I know when she gets older she will realize that God is the only one who can feel that void! He is the only one!! My love is not enough for her but God’s love is. We are very close, but I’m also the one she feels comfortable enough with to let her anger go. Parents just don’t understand the ramifications they have on their children. Especially if drugs and abuse are involved. If you are thinking about fostering or adopting, I encourage you to do it. Both you and your child with be a blessing to each other.

My husband and I were watching “God’s Not Dead” movie last night. It reminded me of my own losses. We logically know that God allows bad things to happen. He doesn’t cause them to happen. Sometimes it’s still hard not to feel mad at God because we don’t understand why. I have lost a set of twins before they were born. I still wonder about them. I know God allowed them to be taken for a reason that’s beyond my understanding. I gain comfort in knowing they are in heaven waiting for ME! God is using me now to help others who are going through the same thing. I named them and am excited to meet them one day. We will be reunited again forever! Being mad at God doesn’t do anything but hurt you. As long as sin is in this world and we have free will, we will suffer more loss and pain. Something else to think about is that one day God WILL destroy Satan and our pain will be NO more!!! Justice will be served!
I was reading my Bible the other day and came across where Jesus fed the five thousand in John 6. It’s a good children’s story, but it’s more than that. When I feel that a task is impossible, I turn to this story. We tend to limit what God does in us by assuming what is and is not possible. Is there some impossible task that you believe that God wants you to do? Don’t hesitate anymore. Go for it! God can do miraculous things, so trust Him to provide for you. This blog was my impossible! God reached out to me through others and cheered me on to start writing. I felt that I didn’t know (and still don’t know) enough about computers to start this. I am navigating my way with God’s help. I hope you join me through this journey!
I am so glad that you visited my blog and I have been praying for each one of you! I want to write to you to share experiences that I have had and how God has worked in my life. This is a new adventure and I am sooo excited!
