A Father to the Fatherless

A father to the fatherless, a defender of widows,
is God in his holy dwelling.
God sets the lonely in families, 
He leads out the prisoners with singing;
but the rebellious live in a sun scorched land.
Pslam 68:5-6

I thought this would be a guest post from Christie from Satisfaction through Christ,
but I guess you'll have to settle with me. ;)

My heart is especially soft towards Christie and her family and what God is doing in their life. 
Because I believe in it. 
So, it is easy to pray for them. 
It is easy to write this post. 

Adoption is part of God's plan of redemption.

There is nothing that so reflects His heart towards us as adoption.

For those who are led by the Spirit of God are the children of God. The Spirit you received does not make you slaves, so that you live in fear again; rather, the Spirit you recieved brought about your adoption to sonship And by Him we cry, 'Abba, Father.' The Spirit himself testifies with our spirit that we are God's children. 
Romans 8:14-16


Christie, her husband and their adopted baby girl, Moriah
found out they were chosen to adopt another baby girl who is due on April 6!

Of course, as you can imagine, they are overjoyed!

Read Christie's blog people!
You will see that this is a woman who loves God and longs to love others as herself. 
I feel so blessed to be able to read her stories online and encouraged to see her families faith.
It's no secret that adopting is usually expensive. 
In order to make this adoption a reality God must provide {and of course He will!}
$35,000. 
To man, that number is HUGE!
But God is even Bigger! And owns the cattle on a thousand hills!

About two weeks ago, Christie proposed the 10:10:1 plan to reach a $10,000 deadline.
10 days, 10 Thousand Dollars, 1 baby

Our God, who is always faithful to provide, provided the $10,000 they needed with $19 to spare!

April 6 is less than 2 months away, a short amount of time,
 but I know this family has a full 2 months ahead! 

They are still in need of $25,000 and not to mention TONS of prayer! 

Let's join together in prayer for this family:

Pray for the health of their new baby girl and her birth mother.
Pray for faith. That they would believe each day that God is able to do all things. 
Pray for perseverance as they wait on God.
Pray for joy! Pray that would have much joy while waiting and preparing for their new daughter!
Pray for provision! Pray that God would abundantly provide for all their needs!
Pray anything your heart stirs you to pray for this sweet family. 
Also, if you would like to give towards their adoption, you can do that on Christie's blog in the Paypal widget. No amount is too small! Remember, Jesus multiplied a few fish and few loaves to thousands!
