“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to give you hope and a future. Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with your whole heart.”
Jeremiah 29:11-13 NIV
God has a master plan for you and for the children that you are caring for. When you seek Him for help, provision and guidance, His word says that you will find Him, when you seek with your whole heart. God knows your desire to care and nurture these children. He loves them even more than you do.
This is a partnership! God has a plan and you are part of it. The pain that children have suffered due to trauma does not just go away. It does not disappear because they now have a family.
Love alone is NOT enough!
Time does NOT heal all wounds!
As much as we want to FIX all the things that have gone wrong in their lives and make it all right, we do not have the power to do that. We do have God’s wisdom and ability to be Agents of Healing.
What does that mean?
An agent is a representative of a greater power. The agent cannot heal themselves but can be used by God to facilitate that healing.
Providing an environment that facilitates peace, a listening ear, safety, love and meeting all physical, emotional and spiritual needs.
We must do our part and allow God to do His! You can rest in the fact, that when you are at the end of yourself and your children are suffering from their past, He is there. He hears your cries, your prayers and is ready to meet you and your family right where you are. Trust Him!
