adoption & the gospel pt 7

look at that sweet little amos face!!!! someone took these of our boy while he was waiting in the orphanage. often i think about the times we missed with him, the milestones we didn't get to go through with him & i wish we had those memories & i wish we knew everything He's been through. but the Lord has given me peace in remembering that our Lord always saw him. He never once lost sight of our amos & in fact He ordained all that he has ever been through. 

amos is feeling more & more like part of the family. he just fits in. he understands that he is a part of this family & he's attaching more to his brothers. he sleeps in the same bed with sammy & he plays with them more instead of going off to play by himself. i rejoice in the work the Father is graciously doing in our boy. He's teaching him how to be a son & brother & showing him how to be apart of a family.

our gracious God does this in us... He patiently teaches us. He never grows weary of showing us the same truths & bringing us back to the cross & His great gospel! He has started a work in each of us & we are in this process of adoption. yes we are called "sons & daughters" immediately , but we don't always act like His children. it takes years for our hearts to heal & KNOW the truth. but we choose to act out of the truth that WE ARE HIS & He is gracious. i pray that as this new year starts we will not grow weary in the work He's doing in us; the work that He has planned out & ordained, but we would be patient & thankful & trust that He will complete the work He's started in us.

"& i am sure of this, that he who began a good work in you will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ." phil 1:6

He will never leave us or forsake us. cling to Him in this new year.
thank you so much for following my blog this past year & oh i pray that the Father would continue to use my simple & sinful life to bring glory to His name!
