Trying Something New

 

The grief can be overwhelming. When a child dies, it brings many questions. When an aged out orphan dies, it brings huge questions.
As I feel myself moving slowly through phases of grief, I can’t help but wonder where this new passion comes from. This overwhelming passion for protecting and advocating for the fatherless. It wasn’t such a big part of my life before.
Many questions.
The only answer that makes sense, that brings peace, that gives comfort, is God.
I accept that God allows earthly events for His will. I accept His perfect timing. I accept His words as comforting.
And I accept this new passion.
Yes, I’ve changed. For some, this has brought grief. Thank you for loving the “old” Kim. I pray you will someday be able to embrace this new creature.
The death of our adopted son’s older sister in Ukraine has only fanned that passionate flame for caring for the fatherless.
I feel as though I’m being moved on to something new, something passionate, something of God.
Please join me in prayer over these next few months. I can hardly wait to share with you where God is leading.
I trust in the Lord with all my heart and lean not on my own understanding. In all my ways I acknowledge Him and He directs my paths.” Proverbs 3:5-6
