This hit my heart especially hard today because I just came back from a weekend retreat for children who are in foster care/adopted. I hear their stories and I wonder … how I would act if my parents didn’t want me or had addictions that were too strong? I cannot imagine how hurt my heart would be and how unwanted I might feel. But you should see these wonderful kids.
They worship with their whole hearts and have the greatest insight about God and His love. I definitely see God in them and know He is alive and so powerful. No matter what our earthly families do to us, no matter what happens to us on this earth, God is within us. NO ONE IS UNWANTED!!!
Think this song from the group All Sons & Daughters pretty much sums it up:
Jesus is our reason to sing! He is our glory and we can hold our heads high no matter what! (Psalm 3:3)
