The reason I started this blog is pretty simple. God has set my heart on fire for orphans, widows, adoption, and "the least of these". It is kind of funny- when I was trying to come up with a name for my blog, I tried literally every verse or phrase or word that had anything to do with orphans/adoption but they were all taken. Which is WONDERFUL. But it also made me question a little bit what difference I can even make. I am a 22 year old college student (until I graduate in August), I have no wife\mother experience (just a LOTTTTTT of babysitting- which I love)...
Today I had a conversation with a friend where I shared a little bit of my heart for orphans and adoption... and her reaction was less than enthusiastic. I have wonderful friends and family who are so supportive... but her comment was so discouraging.
But not 20 minutes later, I had a conversation with a girl who has a heart for 'the least of these' that is so similar to mine I wanted to cry.
And then it hit me full force... GOD. IS. FAITHFUL.
I have said that probably 1000 times and I KNOW that it is true but that He would care enough to affirm me and encourage me in that situation left me so thankful that I serve a God who is personal and real and DIED so that He could have a relationship with me.
I don't feel equipped, I don't feel like I have anything together, I don't have a clue what I am going to do when I graduate, I don't know where God is leading me... but I DO feel called. And I will follow Him where He leads me.
