Hope deferred makes the heart sick,

But when the desire comes, it is a tree of life.

Proverbs 13:12

Motherhood reminds me of the Trinity. I could never be a mother without a child to love. In the same way, only through sacrificial love could God’s ultimate Glory be revealed, and that required a relationship with His Beloved Son. And now we are all His adopted sons and daughters through the Holy Spirit: Three in One.

Without children, much of God’s love would have dried up in my heart, never to be shared. How much less God’s glory would have shone in me? My daughters would never have known God’s love through a young woman, abandoned and rejected; too young to be left childless, too full of promise to be left without Hope, and too hopeful to be left without Joy.

Thank goodness God uses flawed, imperfect human beings. I hate to think how empty my life would have been without my two beautiful daughters. Thank you, Jesus. Thank you, friends and family, who prayed for me every step of the way to Nepal and Vietnam. And I thank our heavenly Father for adopting us into His forever family. The Kingdom of God is here now, but the Kingdom of Heaven is coming.

PRAYER: Dear Jesus, I pray that you remove abortion from the land. You hold the whole world in Your hands, and that includes all the unborn children!
