When Love Takes You In
Thursday, June 4, 2009
Over the past few weeks of waiting our family has discovered several songs about adoption and they can regularly be heard playing at our house and in our cars. These songs remind us over and over that God has called us to love the fatherless and how He loves them even more than we can begin to imagine. Every time I listen to When Love Take You In by Stephen Curtis Chapman-I cry thinking of the children all over the world that long to have a loving home. Children who each night cry going to sleep as they long for the love of a mom and dad. I pray each day around lunch time- as our children go to sleep in Ethiopia- that they will feel comfort in the fact that we are soon coming to bring them home. As they share a bunk bed with 8 kids I pray that God will comfort them in a way that only He can. That He will hold them close and that they will know that they are loved.
