God’s Unique Plan: A Mother’s Day Retrospect

A 2MefromHim Devotional

“Can a mother forget the baby at her breast and have no compassion on the child she has borne? Though she may forget, I will not forget you! See, I have engraved you on the palms of my hands; your walls are ever before me.” Isaiah 49:15, 16

God's Unique Plan scripture

God’s Unique Plan for Each Life

God’s unique plan for each life is what I celebrate on Mother’s Day. Though the observance comes once a year, two special women hold my eternal gratitude—the birthmothers of my adopted children. Without them, my life would be much poorer. I honor them throughout the year.

As an adoptive mother, I participate in an eternal and loving plan of God. I witness the miracle of my children’s unique genetic makeup influenced by non-biological parents chosen by the Father. With no blood between us, we are family.

God has a Unique Plan for Each Person

Our world no longer cares if unmarried women raise their children. Unfortunately, the idea of adoption isn’t always greeted in a positive way. Radical movements have convinced women it’s kinder to kill a child than offer a life with two loving parents. However, our Creator values each unique life he designs.

Adoption is so special to God that he uses it to describe his relationship with believers... #Godislove #adoption #salvation Click To Tweet

The recent outcry against abortion accompanies technology which reveals babies moving, stretching, and sucking their thumbs. Psalm 139 says, “For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made…” The psalmist goes on to speak of God’s handiwork as he forms a child and plans each life from the moment of conception.

Psalm 139:16 reveals God’s unique plan for each life. “…All the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be.” What comfort to know that despite the circumstances of someone’s birth, no one is an accident to God. No one was unplanned. From eternity, God created each person for his purpose.

God’s Unique Plan Includes Adoption

God likens his relationship with believers to that of an adopted child, “the Spirit you received brought about your adoption to sonship. And by him we cry, ‘Abba, Father.’” (Romans 8:15) Paul uses adoption multiple times to explain the intimate relationship of the Christian to the Almighty God.


God's Unique Plan

Mother’s Day lives in my heart as a memorial to the courageous and unselfish choice of two young women. My children are a unique creation of God, who granted them two loving mothers. Adoption is a reminder that we should cherish each and every life. To be a mother is a privilege to never take for granted.

Our World Aflame Part Two: Amazing Mess

Our world has become an amazing mess. Like some horrendous nightmare that will not go away, this summer of 2016 has become more than the summer our next presidential candidates are chosen, more than the summer of the Olympics, more than a fun time of vacations to amazing destinations. This summer–this year, has become the summer death, violence, and hatred, when we turn on the daily news to see where people have died today. Where will it end? What does it mean? What can I do when our world is aflame?

Fearfully and Wonderfully Made

Holding my tiny great nephew in my arms, I was once again amazed at the infinite love and care taken by our Creator God in fashioning the human body. No matter how large it grows, the scarring from accidents, the marring of body piercing or tattoos inflicted by its inhabitant, the human body is fearfully and wonderfully fashioned by God. It functions with amazing and intricate capabilities, surviving horrible destructive forces and fighting for survival to its last breathe–so “fearfully and wonderfully” crafted by its Maker.
