A Tireless Persuit – An Advent Message

Yesterday was an important day for our family.  Our adoption home-study renewal.  On paper, it is a formality required annually to be “on the list.”  Emotionally, it is so much more.  It is not a re-commitment – it is a formal proclamation of our tireless pursuit of our child.  The child who we dream about, long for, and can’t wait to endlessly love.

Fitting that this is also the advent season.  A season that should remind all of us that we are tirelessly pursued.  While we wait for Christmas to come, God sits at his kitchen table.  He reflects on his mission of love, and proclaims his commitment to love us tirelessly by sending us his Awesome Son.  God’s social worker asks, “What will you name your Son?”  And with a sparkle in His eye He responds, “His name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.” Isaiah 9:6

So let it be known to our child.  “We tirelessly pursue you. You who deserve life, a secure home, a mother and a father, and a place to find Jesus.”

Blessed Advent.
