Jesus: Our Hope to Heal Broken Families

Celebrate National Adoption Month today! God bless you!

According to the Child Welfare website, November 2020 is National Adoption Month.  

National Adoption Month is an initiative that helps to promote and spread awareness across the United States for the need for permanent families for children in the foster care system. 

All children need a permanent home. All children need the Word of God that is found through Jesus Christ as the foundation for the home. All children need God. All children need a loving children family that will love them with the love of God through Jesus Christ.  

 All children need the Word of God that is found through Jesus Christ as the foundation for the home. 

~”So we have come to know and to believe the love that God has for us. God is love, and whoever abides in love abides in God, and God abides in him.”~1 John 4:16, ESV~ 

National Adoption Month is a divine celebration ordained by God to celebrate the family unit in the home. It centers around the need for the love of God to spread in the home so that foster children can come to know Jesus through their foster parents. 

While I am not a foster mother, I have felt like a mother in the past to children that the Lord has allowed for me to contact with over the years, especially over seas. 

In 2017, I went on a missions trip to Japan for two months. I stayed in three providences of Japan, with one of them being Miyazaki, Japan, during my time in Japan and ministered to children in an afterschool program. 

During the time that I spent with the children, God blessed me with opportunity to lead Vacation Bible School with the children. Through the VBS activities that we did during this time, the children were able to feel the love of God of Jesus Christ through me.  

I was gentle, patient and nurturing to the children as I shared the unconditional love of Christ with the children through arts and crafts, swimming, playing games and other Christ-centered activities them.

Even though I was not the mother of these children, I felt as if God allowed for me to tend to the children in Japan so that they can experience the love of God through me as I shared the Word of God through them. In this way, they experienced the love of Christ during my time in Japan.  

From my experiences with the children in Japan, I was able to discern that ministering to children is one of my callings. National Adoption Month is a month that I celebrate and rejoice in the Lord because He gave children a place in this world to be salt and light within their homes.

Pray for all children to find loving Christian homes and that their love for the Lord would increase through their parents as they are taught the Word of God. God bless you!
