The miracle is not that we do this work, but that we are h a p p y to do it" Mother Teresa. Though being a foster mom can be insanely hard, time consuming, heart wrenching, I truly do love this work & am grateful for the chance to serve our community in the name of Jesus. And to be honest, the pain & uncertainty keeps me close to Him, and that's not a bad thing.
Following after Jesus was never meant to be easy, convenient or safe. If it were, what would we even need Him for? But when the going gets tough we must remember His character. He is faithful to extend his hand, the right tools & his provisions that can come in the most unexpected ways. Almost daily someone says 'I could never foster' (which, hello 🙋🏼, was me) but in saying that you might just be closing off the door to your heart where the Lord wants to use you the most and just maybe He wants to meet YOU like never before. Do you know Him as your provider? Do you trust him to navigate raging waters? Do you believe that He is present in your mourning? That He's capable of healing your broken heart & binding up your wounds? That when your heart fails, He is your strength?? If the answers are yes, then you could in fact, foster.
I mean, guys, just look at those little feet & that hand clenching mine 🖤 #OrphanCare
