Have you ever had an experience so profound it changes the entire rest of your life? Has Jesus shown you something so beautiful, so profound in his plan for you that your foundations shook?
If you have been present for a birth, you have witnessed God's kingdom grow. For me, (Kaitlyn here) the moment my daughter was born I realized I had seen God's plan grow. His plan and his purpose unfolded before my eyes with this child HE sent for HIS glory.
That moment happens over and over at the Grace Center...people realize the purpose and beauty of the Lord when looking outside themselves and into the eyes and heart of a child.
Exodus 9:16 says, "But I have raised you up for this very purpose, that I might show you my power and that my name might be proclaimed in all the earth."
What greater news could there be?! God has purpose for you! God has purpose for ALL of us! We wants to use you and those you love to proclaim his name. The Lord of all wants to use you to show his power!
Here's something else to process: the Lord wants to use his children you have not even met yet for that same purpose. He has created beautiful souls to glorify himself all over this earth.
What if your purpose is to help someone realize theirs? What if that moment of realization of God's great love and glory is waiting for you behind the eyes of a precious little boy or girl needing a sponsor?
Is God extending his love to you in a new way by showing you more of himself through a new person?
Sylvana found more of the Lord in Malawi. She fell deeply in love with the country and the children and in the process, she found more of the love of the Lord.
Watch her story of sponsorship below and embrace God's calling on your life today! (Get your Kleenex ready!)
We can never know too much of God's glory or beauty! By knowing children in Malawi and inviting them into my heart and my family through loving them and sponsoring them I have seen more and more of the Lord and it's been a truly life changing experience.
But the plans of the Lord stand firm forever,
the purposes of his heart through all generations.
Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord,
the people he chose for his inheritance.
Sylvana said it best, "As a result of this of this place, as a result of the LOVE I have found, my role as a nurse back in the states as changed tremendously just because of the way this place has impacted my life."
