I’m proud to be an adoptive mom. I write incessantly about my girls. I attend and speak at adoption conferences, read orphan care books.
Adoption is just
that we experienced
ONE part of God’s movement in our lives.
What is YOUR one thing?
What part of your life most defines you? Most changed you?
Are you hanging on to one ancient part of your testimony?
I get it, truly. You have a story. A big, amazing, God story.
The Creator of the world reached into your little life in a huge, tangible, unbelievable way, and you’ve never gotten over it. Nor should you.
Your story is beautiful, I’m sure. I’d love to hear it. Please tell it. Redemption is my favorite. Never forget that moment. Never forget when your Savior did what He does so well: saves.
God told those Israelites who’d seen their Lord’s salvation to set up stones of remembrance. But these stones — these old testimonies — they were not meant to be carried around, weighing us down and delaying onward walks with Jesus. They’re meant to be monuments, which we can pass by as we move with Jesus, unburdened, knowing that God can still do things even greater than whatever He’s already done in our lives.
Hold a memory in your heart, but don’t clutch it greedily in your hands; keep your palms open for more of Jesus. The Eternal God cannot be confined to your moment. He will move fresh again.
God isn’t finished with you.
There’s more in your life He wants to do.
(Spoiler alert: Your life in Christ will be an incredible story, and in the end, God wins.)
