Standards Of Adoption



I am an adopted child. Chosen, not born into a family by a chance relationship.
My parents are exceptional because they know exactly who I am now and who I will become.

Mortal man has tried to manipulate genetics for years to achieve perfection in the mind and body. The problem is what is considered perfection for one person is not the same for another. There will never be an agreement of minds so the perfection desired canít be attained.

Yet my parents think I am just what they want me to be. My parents knew me even before I was formed. They knew my hearts desires. They give me guidance as I grow. Side by side they share with me the triumphs of my life, and the pain I experience. They told me that what ever I ask of them they would give me. But remember, I am a child; I donít always know what is best for me. That is why I donít always get what I desire but what I need most at the time.

My parents hold me to high standards of conduct. I am expected to treat all with the love and respect I would want for my self.
I am to guard my words so I hurt no one.
I am asked to be loving and caring towards others, even when I feel it is not deserved.

This world I live in, is harsh. It is filled with many tempting things that would be wrong for me, even harm me or change who I am. I struggle with physical and emotional pain, often seemingly alone.

I sometimes feel alone, but I am not. My parents are always there. Even when I canít see or feel them. I just have to reach out to them.

I am like the child taking first steps; I stumble, fall, and cry. Then reach out for support, get up and stumble along again.

I thought love could conquer all things, but my parents showed me that love supports in times of trials and hurts. Love lifts with pleasure, joy, and comfort. Because of love my parents even step back sometimes and let me fall so I can learn and understand. In doing so I grow to become stronger in whom I am.

I am adopted, but I have many brothers and sisters with more born each day.

Have I introduced you to my parents?

Ephesians 1:4-6 NIV

For he chose us in him before the creation of the world, to be holy and blameless in his sight. In love he predestined us to be adopted as his sons (daughter) through Jesus Christ, In accordance with his pleasure and will Ė to be the praise of his glorious grace, which he has freely given us in the one he loves.


Ephesians 1: 11-15 NIV

In him we were also chosen, having been predestined according to the plan of him who works out everything in conformity with the purpose of his will. In order that we were the first to hope in Christ, might be for the praise of his glory. And also were included in Christ when you heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation. Having believed, you were marked in him with a seal, the promised Holy Spirit, who is a deposit guaranteeing our inheritance until the redemption of those who are Godís possession to the praise of his glory.

Thatís right, I am Gods adopted daughter for now and eternity. And unlike mortal parents, my father will never pass away and I will never be left alone.
