The Father’s Extravagant Love

See what an incredible quality of love the Father has given (shown, bestowed on) us, that we should be permitted to be named and called and counted the children of God! And so we are! The reason the world does not know (recognize, acknowledge) us is that it does not know (recognize, acknowledge) Him. 1 John 3:1(AMP)

Prior to adopting my daughter I didn’t really believe it was possible to love any child as much as you love your own. I’m almost ashamed to admit it, but it’s the truth. And as much I revel in the knowledge that I am a totally unique, one of a kind individual, I know I’m not the only person who believed that.

I see non-belief most often in my own family. They can’t see her as my child because they are unable to separate what they know (her biological parents) from who she is – my daughter. (by law and by love) My heart doesn’t know the difference between the one I gave life and the one life gave me.

I had to learn to accept that no matter how much I may want them to “recognize and acknowledge” who she is, some people just won’t get it. I was there once.

Through faith in Christ we become Children of God. He is our Father and His extravagant love knows no limits. How blessed we are!

xoxo Be Blessed!
