A Place You Belong

To my beautiful sisters in Friday morning adoption moms support group:

When I first read the name, A Place I Didn't Belong, my heart cringed.  I believe in a sovereign God whose hands guide my every step.

Will He really ever take me to a place I don't belong?

Does He ever have something other than good for me?

He has always used my deepest wounds as His invitation to reveal His unconditional love, His great mercy, His magnificent character.

My trauma has always landed me right into His tender, yet so-strong hands.

I want to encourage your heart.  You are never alone.

You are part of His chosen family
(Galatians 3:26-29).
He will use your beautiful, hard story to rebuild (Isaiah 61:1-7).
He is always right beside you, ready to satisfy your weary and languished soul (Jeremiah 31:25).

Sister, we have been given a terrific glimpse into His beautiful adoption of each of us.  And if He loves us so much to adopt, call us His own, you better believe He loves your adopted one more than you can imagine.

He gave your precious one the gift of you.  Don't ever underestimate your calling!  What a blessing to be written right into His redemption plan.

You are right where you belong, loved and safe in His arms, vessels ready and willing to share your adoption into Him with your precious one.

Praying for you!
