Please take 4 minutes to listen to this video....and realize.
I feel like sometimes I say the same things over and over again but maybe in a slightly different way, but I just think I will continue to do so until everyone gets it. :)
There are things that used to be important to me that no longer are, and many things still that really should not be. Like retirement funds...not so much anymore. When I am able to quit my job the money the government has asked me to stash away; guess where that is going? You got it; adoption; unless the Lord tells me somewhere else. But my point is....I will not be saving away for my kids college funds, or so each of them can have their own car to drive around and etc...if my "plenty" means I can adopt more, or give more to the Least of These then that is what I am going to do!
We Americans, my self included, tend to make ourselves so comfortable in this life that really how often do we have to rely on God? We prepare for every what if, we save for the what if, we buy insurance for the what if, and on and on....If I am constantly doing this when their are so many without really what am I accomplishing for the Kingdom of God and his Glory? Why do I not trust him for my EVERY need? Why Don't you? What am I doing with the MUCH I have been given?
Some may not like the way I say things or go about things or judge that we ask for help with the crazy high cost of adoption and I usually say it's ok, but It really isn't. Now don't get me wrong I absolutely do not believe everyone is obligated to donate to our next adoption, but I ABSOLUTELY believe EVERYONE is to do something for the orphan, the widow, and the stranger.
So please simply Seek God and ask him what you are to do because our red time is extremely short and I for one am tired of wasting it.
Please don't forget our rummage sale on July 23 if you are in the area. It will be at Kent and I's church from 8-3. We are receiving lots of donated items; which is so exciting! So now the prayers are people will show up and buy... :)
