I’m not ever shy when I talk about how much I love Embrace Grace girls. If I’m ever describing an EG girl to someone else, it pretty much always sounds like this: “She’s really cute and has a sweet little belly and she is SO sweet and such a great personality, etc etc etc” This is really what I see when I talk to EG girls.
I feel like each of them is like a treasure box and the more I talk to them, a little more unique qualities start showing up a little more and more. I just want to hug all of them and tell them how proud I am of them and how much I pray for them and love them so much!
I know sometimes when I tell people this, they look at me funny. I can’t help it though. God planted this love in me in April of 2008. I’m not sure that I had this passion all my life though.
I prayed and asked God to show me where He wanted to use me. I asked Him to break my heart for what breaks His. He gave me a vision and dropped this love in my heart that makes all of this EG stuff not a chore or burden, but SO fun for me! I love it so much!
I watched a movie not too long ago called Father of Lights (which was SO good). It had this couple that God had put a special love in their hearts for orphans in China. They built this orphanage for special needs kids and they LOVED it so much and you could just see the love on this couple’s face as they interacted with these kids.
It’s so cool to see the different ways that God uses us to be His hands and feet. There are a lot of different people to love and when you line up your will with His, your life will never be the same.
Has God placed a special love in your heart for a certain mission or cause? Share with us! Or if not, ask Him to show you – He will. He is waiting for you to ask. We want to hear your stories!
