Today as I was struggling with the blog post, trying to figure out what I wanted to say with it, I had to stop up and ask God, what He wanted to say about these girls. The answer came very clearly:
- That they are loved!
- That they are worthwhile!
- That they are mine!
God’s love and care for each one of the girls became so very clear. He does not settle for survival. He loves the girls as He loves every other person on the planet, and His words are spoken directly to them:
“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” (Jer 29;11)
It is such an encouragement, that our love for the girls, Allison’s love for the girls is surpassed by lengths by the Creator of all, the girls’ true Father. We may do what is in our power to love the girls and give them a family and a Mom who believes in them and cares for them. But God’s plans and his power to carry those plans out are far greater.
