The other day I ran across this video. http://www.faithit.com/somewhere-god-telling-someone-they-need-adopt-5-kids-we-need-get-this-story-to-them-asap/ Click the link. Watch the video. Let your heart break for these dear kids. This story is way to common in the US.
According to the heart gallery of America, there are nearly 400,000 kids in foster care in the US. 101,000 of them are up for adoption. Approximately 25,000 teens will age out of the foster care system this year without a family. There are also approximately 450,000 churches in the US. Think about that. 400,000 kids in foster care and 450,000 churches. Finding homes shouldn’t be a problem, but it is.
The Bible says that pure and undefiled religion is to visit the widows and orphans in their distress. To care for them. To be their families when they have none. It seems to me that American Christians are missing something huge. How can we not open up our hearts and our homes to these children when God opened up His heart to us. Can we not love unconditionally no matter what the cost even as Jesus loved us unconditionally.
Don’t make excuses. The Father has already called you to love them through His Word and His perfect example. It’s up to you to pursue this opportunity. Pursue it with all your might, and if the Lord closes the door and nothing works out, than so be it. However, if the Father blesses you with the opportunity to help them, to be their family, their friend, Praise the Lord and embrace the challenge. While it may not be an easy road, it is a road that comes with unmeasurable blessings.
Meanwhile, please pray that Joshua, Dominick, Christopher, Caleb, and Zareya will be able to escape their prison and find a family, a forever home, where they can all be together. One that will show them the love of God by loving them unconditionally. And while your doing that click this link http://www.heartgalleryofamerica.org/Galleries/index.html. Look at the pictures of these children. Stamp them upon your heart and pray for them. Love them by praying for them. Beseech the Father that every one of these kids will find their family. And more than that, pray that they will someday come to know the unconditional love of their Perfect Father, God.
