Help Find Him
This little boy has a future and a hope, God declared that in His word. His name is Vadim. He has adoptive parents trying to adopt him. Unfortunately he was transferred to an institution. His adoptive parents have no idea where. I don't know what we can do other than storm heaven for a miracle.
Today my devotion was on God's timing and how it is always perfect, how to be still and know He is God. One thing I am not good at is being still. This is a situation out of our control and we are forced to be still. I am have to be still but I wont be quiet. All I can think to say is come Lord Jesus come! I hate this! I am angry! This is not fair! Why are children treated like this. Dogs are treated better than these kids. What are you doing to change this? Yes YOU! You reading this blog is your conscience clear? I know for some of you reading it is. You donate to adoptions, you pray for orphans and you live out James 1:27. What about the rest of you?!
WAKE UP PEOPLE THIS IS REAL! Children are being transferred to mental institutes at the age of 4 in other countries because they have special needs. What are we doing? Are we giving until it hurts? When KLove was doing their pledge drive they ask that, are we sacrificially giving? And it hit me, I am not. Shame on me. Instead of a new tv I could have helped pay a child's ransom. Why are we so willing to "like" things on Facebook or say we are going to change the world yet never do anything? We make our one missions trip a year and come home and go buy our designer clothes and expensive coffee and sign up to go on another missions trip on a year. Really? Thats enough? Will that be enough for God to say to me Well done thy good and faithful servant?! NO!!! Its not enough! We need to give until it hurts, raise awareness lift our voices and stop talking about how we are going to some day make a difference and just do it already!
This family is in pain. What can we do? Let's pray. Get the word out. Help fund their adoption. Go to Reece's Rainbow and sponsor an orphan for chritmas look over to the right and follow my blog and I will donate to Warner. You dont want to follow? Fine, there is a chip in that goes directly to Reece's Rainbow for Warner, donate! Anyone local who donates gets a chance to win a free photoshoot by me.
Let's make God proud of us today and everyday. We are living in the last days and time is short. What legacy do you want to leave? Do you want to look back over your life at the end and say I have no regrets or do you want to say, man I wish I had done this. Please help.
