You can pray. Prayer is our greatest weapon. It is our God given communication line to the One who is sovereign and omnipotent. When the cause seems great and our own resources and power small, pray. Pray to the One who can fill the need and see if He will not answer those prayers.

So in helping the cause of the orphan, one of the first things you can do is pray. Pray for the needs of the orphan. Pray for God to open more Christian hearts to adoption and make these precious children orphans no more. Pray for God to show you what you can do both now and in the future to aid this cause. But most importantly, pray for God’s will to be done, for justice to be served, and for God’s heart towards the fatherless become our heart.

So get started right now by joining the movement to care for orphans through prayer!

Does your heart beat for the orphan? Does each lonely child’s face break your heart? Are you passionate about healing the plight of the orphan?

I am.

But if you’re like me, then you’re probably too young to do anything about it. You probably haven’t entered the season of life where you could welcome one of these precious children into your home. But you still want to help. You want to be involved. You want to make a difference.

So what can you do?

This week I’m going to share with you three practical things you can do to aid the cause of orphan care. I’ll share stories of victory, hope, and joy as children are joined with their forever families. I’ll point you to resources where you can learn more about the need of the orphan and ways in which you can get involved. So stay tuned and prayerfully open your heart to ways that God would have you join the movement to care for orphans.

​If you had any doubts about Hosea 6:1-3 being a false confession, God’s response should settle the question in your mind. It did for me. After Israel’s eloquent and verbose declaration to return, God doesn’t even acknowledge it. He doesn’t pat them on the back and say, “Oh good for you! I’m glad that I was finally able to get through to you!” On the contrary! His response is more along the lives of, “You still don’t get it, do you?”

Summer has officially begun. Yesterday was the longest day of the year. As I look outside towards our backyard bathed in sunshine, my eyes rest on our humble vegetable garden. We’ve had it for many years, and over many summers. Young shoots of beans, carrots, Swiss chard, and cucumbers emerge from the rich soil as the warmth of summer works it’s magic. It’s a season of growth, new life, and productive as these tender plants will eventually mature to bear life-giving produce for our family to enjoy.

As I ponder these things, I am reminded of a devotional I recently read by Charles Spurgeon. It so perfectly fits this season of summer and holds much truth and encouragement for the spiritual life, that I thought I’d share it with you all. So enjoy, and may God use it to bring encouragement and growth into your spiritual life! Happy summer!

“Come, let us return to the LORD; for he has torn us, that he may heal us; he has struck us down, and he will bind us up. After two days he will revive us; on the third day he will raise us up, that we may live before him. Let us know; let us press on to know the LORD; his going out is sure as the dawn; he will come to us as the showers, as the spring rains that water the earth.”
- Hosea 6:1-3

This is probably one of the most well-known passages in Hosea. Often quoted in reference to God’s faithfulness and His desire to bring restoration, this passage is generally looked on in a positive light—a confession of sincere repentance, an acknowledgement of the need to return. But is it?

​Father’s Day was two days ago. Did you shower blessing and honor upon your father? Did you express how much you love and appreciate your daddy?

Just as our earthly father likes to be called daddy, so also our heavenly Father longs to hear the word spring from our mouths. Just as the toddler runs full speed towards his daddy, so also God wants us to always run straight towards Him. Just as a child turns to her father for every need, want, and desire, so also God wants us to turn toward Him. He wants us to view Him with the same trust, feelings of safety, and love that we associate with our earthly daddy. So He gave Himself a new name.

Hello! Thanks for checking out my John 7-21 Study G+ collection. This was a series I wrote for my blog (www.soifixmyeyes.com) and was completed in November of 2016. Thus I will not be adding to this collection.

However, feel free to check out the entire study below. Not all the of the series is posted in the collection--some of the early ones were published before this G+ account existed. So please check out the entire study below.

May God richly bless you through the pages of the Gospel of John!

I recently read this article and found it really encouraging. So I thought I'd share it with you all. May God use it to bless and encourage your heart as you navigate this blessed season of singleness. Enjoy!

“Daddy!”

That word easily tumbles out of the mouth of a toddler as he runs to greet his father with a bear hug or spills out in the delighted squeal of a little girl as her father relentlessly tickles her tummy. Whether it’s uttered in joyful abandon, frustrated anger, deep-hearted sorrow, unwavering trust, or warm affection from the lips of a child or adult, the connotation remains the same.

Does God ever abandon His children? Does He ever see their continued sin and say “Enough!”? If so, how can a loving and forgiving God do such a thing?

“I will return again to my place, until they acknowledge their guilt and seek my face, and in their distress earnestly seek me.”
~Hosea 5:15
