Dear Foster Mama {On Need}

Need is a beautiful thing.

Yet your stomach clinches at the thought of owning this truth.

But think of the One who defined Truth...

Who, being in very nature God,
Did not consider equality with God something to be used to His own advantage;
rather, He made himself nothing,
by taking the very nature of a servant,
being made in human likeness.
And begin found in appearance as a man,
He humbled himself
by becoming obedient to death ~
Even death on a Cross.
~ Philippians 2: 6-8

You've taken the nature a a servant,

Of one who is capable of fixing, but accepting that you will surrender ~

That your heart will die, the death of a Cross.

He's invited you to love with a Holy love,

And to bleed a Holy death.

You've chosen the life of bringing Hope and Restoration with open hands
marked with scars from loving again and again,

Rather than taking for your own gain with clutched palms.

My Friend, your scars are kissed by the One who bears them for You.

So as you stand peering into tomorrow, into the week, into the unknown,

Knowing only that you will be called to love endlessly and die a daily death,

Own your need for the Glory of your Savior...

Because God exalted Him to the highest place
and gave Him the name that is above every name,
that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow,
in Heaven and one earth and under the earth,
and every tongue acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord,
to the glory of God the Father.
~ Philippians 2:9-11

Your need declares to the world your trust, your rest in the only One who can meet your need.

My Friend, we rise to bless you.

Because Jesus is Worthy ~
