My brother and his wife have been encouraged by a family they recently met and I just had to share this fantastic post from their site. Read it if you want to be encouraged to press on for Him in a world that says to “live for you”. A powerful and convicting look at adoption and a challenge to save our lives by losing them.
We Didn’t Get the Memo
“We have come to the conclusion that we will only truly “retire” when we meet Jesus face to face. Everything in between, we pray, brings honor and glory to the king of Kings and Lord of Lords…the only true living God…maker of heaven and earth….the one who we want the whole world to know as their Miracle-working, Mountain-moving, Awe-inspiring, Gasp-giving God….and so we press on with more determination than ever….we will give our lives away as best we know how, always praying that God breaks our hearts with the things that break His and asking Him to continue to get rid of any traces of selfishness in our hearts.”
