Orphan Sunday~


There is no doubt God chose these children to be in our family. The moment I saw their face I knew.

Now when I look on these faces, my heart cries. Once all alone, sad, cold, hungry, afraid, and abandoned. They were orphans with no love, joy, or hope.

Today there are 153 million orphaned children waiting for forever love. Let you heart settle on that for a little while.

Don't you have love to give? Isn't there room around your table? Can't you squeeze one more bed into your house? Doesn't Jesus ask you to take care of the orphans?

Quote from David Platt
“We learned that orphans are easier to ignore before you know their names. They are easier to ignore before you see their faces. It is easier to pretend they’re not real before you hold them in your arms. But once you do, everything changes.” – Radical by David Platt.

This is certainly true for our children. Everything changed! Once we knew them, we could barely wait to have them in our arms. These are the faces of real little souls that were lost and now found. The ones that have broken our hearts for every other Orphan in the world!

Would you spend this one day and pray how God would use you in the plight of the orphan~ a child is most definitely needing you to!!! James 1:27
