Relentless Pursuit

One of the many things adoption has taught me is the parallel relationship between God's relentless pursuit of his children and our relentless pursuit of our babies. I've never felt God's love and pursuit over me like I have since we've started our adoption. Even though this process is so painful, long, and not what I expected, I would go to the ends of the earth for our babies. I would never give up on them. Everything we've done I would do all over again in order to provide them with LIFE. And yet that kind of love pales in comparison to the kind of love God has for us. It's a glimmer of how far his love has gone for us. He went to the cross. We've only gone through We're only going to Ethiopia.
Out of his inexplicable love for us, he's adopted us from being spiritually orphaned into his family. And I have found my forever family in his family because of his relentless pursuit.
