I used to go through life and wonder: “What am I supposed to be doing? How can I further God’s kingdom? How do I share the best kind of love possible and radiate His light?”
Through a tiny little girl I have gotten a huge answer – a purpose, a solution and a feeling. I saw her and felt drawn to pick her up and kiss her cheek, nose and forehead, and hold her head up when she couldn’t.
I got that “can’t breathe” kind of feeling… That, “This is your answer,” kind of feeling.
It has been through her that I know God is calling me to work with children with disabilities - specifically those who are at-risk, living in destitution or orphans. He’s called me to work with those who are already so special that they need a little bit more love, attention and care – those who often do not get that love, attention and care that they so desperately need.
I do not know where I will be or what exactly I will be doing to answer this call, but I do know that this little angel was put in my arms for a reason. Through her, He moved me.
