Dear God-tracker


"I thought we would stay there longer or be adopted by this family," said Clair as she shared stories of her childhood one evening around the dinner table. "But we were soon moved on to a new foster home. All my foster carers were wonderful people, but all my brothers and I wanted was a stable, loving home with a mom and dad who would never abandon us like our own parents had." Clair was the eldest of three siblings. Their biological parents were abusive and negligent resulting in social services had removed them from their birth home, placing them into foster care. Clair was accustomed to looking out for her younger brothers as they moved from home to home but all she ever longed for was for was to be adopted by two caring adults she could call mom and dad. "Finally, when that day came, I remember waking up every morning thinking, mom and dad will always be here every time a wake up. They will never leave me or forsake me."

Child fostering is a noble and caring occupation but nothing beats the real thing. There is a great need in our society to fully adopt abandoned and abused children. To me, people who choose to adopt other people's children to love and care for them as their own are heroes. These often abandoned children are welcomed, cared for and shown grace in their time of need.

Christian, when you were once abandoned and lost in this world, Father God chose you in him that you should be holy and blameless before him. In love God predestined you for adoption as his son or daughter through Jesus Christ, according to the purpose of his will. Father God did not need you. Father God did not inherit you he chose to adopt you. Through the atoning work of Jesus Christ (God's only begotten Son) Father God made the way for you to come to him just as you are warts and all and, because you have acknowledged Jesus as Lord, he has adopted you regardless. Yes, as your Abba Father he will discipline and guide you, but his discipline is always in love like a true father. Though you may rant and rave at times he will never abandon or forsake you. He is your carer, your provider, your comforter and your counselor. He is anything a good father would be and all his children are co-heirs to his Kingdom. All this because he has adopted you by choice, through Jesus Christ, according to the purpose of his will.

God-tracking is waking every morning to call him Dad

Verse of the Week

Rom 8:15
For you did not receive the spirit of slavery to fall back into fear, but you have received the Spirit of adoption as sons, by whom we cry, "Abba! Father!"

Quote of the Week
A Sample of Dudley's Fave Quotes.

"God is not a power or principle or law, but he is a living, creating, communicating person -- a mind who thinks, a heart who feels, a will who acts, whose best name is Father." --- Robert Hamill

Don't Give Up, Look Up!
Look up and Fix Your Eyes on Jesus!

Lord, help me to grow up under your care to be the child you want me to be

"O Abba Father, thank you so much for sending your only begotten Son, Jesus, to be a sin offering for me to make the way for you to choose me to be your child. Thank you so much for adopting me. Thank you for committing to care for me and provide for me like a loving dad. Thank you that I can wake up every morning to know that you'll always be there for me. I am so grateful to be called your son/daughter. Thank you for the intimacy of our relationship. Thank you that I can sit on your knee and pour out my needs to you. Thank you for your counsel and your fatherly discipline. Lord, help me to grow up under your care to be the child you want me to be. Amen."
