Gifts From God

    Children are a gift from the Lord; they are a real blessing.  The sons a man has when he is young are like arrows in a soldier's hand.  Happy is the man who has many such arrows.  He will never be defeated when he meets his enemies in the place of judgment.  (Psalms 127:3-5)


    A little over a week ago Taylor and I went to our first ultrasound appointment and I got to see our child and hear its heartbeat.  Man this was such a surreal moment, and pointed out how detailed God designed us. It also got me thinking, about how many children there are in Honduras and the rest of the world that do not have a mother and/or father, and how God has called ALL of us as Christians to love and take care of the orphans and widows.   
   
    Isaiah 58:7 Is it not to share your food with the hungry and to provide the poor wanderer with shelter— when you see the naked, to clothe them, and not to turn away from your own flesh and blood?
   
    James 1:27  Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.
   
     I am so excited to be on this journey, and to be the light to these hurting people.  And to be an earthly father to these children and point them to the forever father.


In Him,
-Austin
