"Think of all the hostility He endured from sinful people; then you won't become weary and give up."
Hebrews12:3 (NLT)

Actually, as I read this verse today I thought of my dear sister at www.nogreaterjoymom.com.




This family is in the middle of bringing home a precious soul (pictured above) that has special needs and have received quite of bit of hostility. I love this verse too as we have walked, and still do, this same road. We have had people accuse us of selling our children, making them slaves, doing more harm than good and the newest one, child trafficking. And so, if Jesus, the Son of God, experienced hostility, what makes me think that I won't. Let us not grow weary and give up--keeping our gaze every so steadily on our Lord who understands more than we will ever know.

How Beautiful. Reminds me of many of our days in the foster care system, as well as racism, and hate. But GOD's JOY is GREATER!!!! AMEN!

Oh you are so special. Thank you that verse--so encouraging to my heart tonight. Just what I needed. It is so comforting to know that we never walk alone in the things we go through--thank you for your kind words and your constant encouragement. I appreciate it so very much.

Big hugs from CO.

we are going thru an investigation right now in ug. ... accused of purchasing our children. it has been mind boggling to say the least, however, this verse does put it into perspective. still waiting on the Lord for our outcome. if you do not mind keeping us before the throne of grace, we'd appreciate it.
