ADOPTED

2 Corinthians 6:18
“ I will be a Father to you, And you shall be My sons and daughters,Says the LORD Almighty.”

Is there any thing more tragic than a beautiful, talented mother who gets so entangled in the need for drugs that she actually agrees to give away her two precious daughters? Here is a picture of those two precious girls. One is eight and the other is five. 
They have been treated like unwanted outcasts. They have lived in “hovels” and an older 12 year old sister had to try to be a mother to her little sisters while mother would spend days strung out on drugs. They experienced hunger and neglect. and youngest one was actually born while her mom was in prison. The sad details of this story could go on, but I am sure you can read between the lines and fill in the story yourself. There are so many of these children in our world today.

The girls are extremely bright and extremely sweet, and my daughter, and her husband, are extremely blessed to be able to adopt them.
And think how blessed the girls are.

They have gone from being unwanted and unloved to becoming a part of a real family who has given them the kind of love and hope they have never known, and believe you me, they are “eating it up”. They seem to get a special thrill out of being able to say “Mommy and Daddy”. And you know what?  In being adopted into the family, they became heirs to everything the family has. WOW!

The world is made up of a lot of “Spiritual Orphans” today. I hope you are not one of them. They live in the “Hovels” of ungodliness, and wander around seeking something that can satisfy the hunger of their anemic souls. But there is hope! And that hope is in adoption. We need to tell them that they will never be satisfied, or know what real love is, until they cry out to be adopted into the family of God.

In the eighth chapter of Romans we are reminded that;
“Those who are led by the Spirit of God are the children of God. ..And the Spirit you received brought about your ADOPTION ...And by him we cry, Abba, Father. The Spirit himself testifies with our spirit that we are God’s children. Now if we are children, then we are heirs — heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ.
CHECK OUT THE NEW FAMILY

IF YOU ARE HURTING AND LONELY TODAY,  GOD IS ANXIOUS TO ADOPT YOU INTO THE FAMILY OF GOD!
