I have such an excitement and joy in my heart today! I have two very special friends who adopted a precious baby girl this week!!! They prayed and waited what seemed like an eternity, but God answered the multitude of prayers this week!!! Little Madeline Rose was born on Wednesday and my friends got to bring her home yesterday!!! Praise God from whom all blessings flow!!!!
In thinking about my friends, this precious baby, and the birth mom who has chosen to give her baby to a family who can give her an abundant life full of unconditional love, I can't help but think about my relationship with God. You know, He gave up His only son just for me! He sent Jesus, His perfect and holy son, into this world to die as a sacrifice for my sins so that I can live with Him forever. And because I accepted this wonderful gift of salvation, I am now a part of God's kingdom. I am God's adopted child and I am living a life of abundance and have His undconditional love forever!! Wow!!
The song I'm sharing for "Then Sings My Soul Saturday" is called "Orphans of God" and was written by Avalon. My church choir has sung this several times, so the words are engraved in my memory and in my heart. This song speaks volumes about God's unconditional love for each of those children who have accepted Him as their Lord and Savior and are now part of His Kingdom. And the most amazing part is His gift of salvation is free to everyone who is willing to accept it! EVERYONE can become adopted by God simply by accepting Jesus as their Savior. If you have questions about this or would like to know how you can become a child of God, leave a comment or email me and I'll be more than happy to share with you.
