INSTANT TAKEAWAYS

1 | God Places People in our lives

God knows exactly what we need in our lives, every second, of every day of our lives. In addition to that, He places us in situations to develop relationships that are healthy for us, and greatly beneficial, with the opportunity to develop deeply. Sometimes we don’t understand it and sometimes we don’t want it. But that doesn’t stop Him from caring about us! He wants the best for us, He doesn’t want us to be lonely, and He wants us to have a community and celebrate Him while we’re here.

2 | WHERE DO WE FIT IN?

Kellie has an incredible point of view on where she comes from. She realized that she isn’t, at her core, a child of adoption here on Earth. But rather, a child of God! She mentions struggling with her identity early on, wanting to know where she comes from and I think that is so easy. We often want to rest in who we are during this life, since it’s right in front of our faces. It’s easy to forget, and overlook the eternal. But, when we root ourselves in our Savior, when we establish our foundations in the fact that Jesus fought for us and we are indeed a child of God, we’re no longer lost. We don’t have anywhere else to search because we’ve found, who we are, in Him!
