I truly believe in God’s provision and that He has a plan for our lives.
I was just two months old when I came to stay with my family. I hear stories of the living conditions I was in and if I had stayed where I was, I wouldn’t have survived. If it wasn’t for God speaking into my parents’ lives I probably wouldn’t be here today. They always wanted a baby girl and patiently waited 10 years till God brought her to them J
I feel like I was given a second chance in life. I could never underestimate God’s unconditional love He has for us. He cares that much to make sure I’m taken care of so I can fulfill the calling He has for me.
I struggle a lot with the feeling of rejection. Every once in awhile I feel like people in my life are going to leave me whether it’s family or relationships. Although I know that’s not the case, in the back of my mind I still get these feelings. I believe these feelings stem back to when I was adopted. After years of feeling this way, over the last few years I’ve let God step in and heal that part of my life. Although I still struggle with it from time to time, I don’t let those feelings rule my life anymore.
I know that God is bigger than that feeling and God is going to use these experiences through my life. I believe that because of all that I’ve been through it has made me want to love on kids who don’t have a lot or who just needs someone there for them. Kids are my heart and I can’t wait to continue on the path God has for me to work with them!
