What’s ‘Plan A’?

Note: Most of our actual adoption entries are between April of 2008 – December 2008.

Ephesians 1:1-6

“Paul, an apostle of Christ Jesus by the will of God, To the saints who are in Ephesus, and are faithful in Christ Jesus: Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in Christ with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places, even as he chose us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and blameless before him. In love he predestined us for adoption through Jesus Christ, according to the purpose of his will, to the praise of his glorious grace, with which he has blessed us in the Beloved.”

Adoption is the God-ordained means of getting His kids into His family! It was not an after thought. Adoption was the plan that God had from the beginning — we were predestined for adoption! It was not a backup plan. It was not an alternative. It was not God’s great scrambling effort to repair a botched original. It was not Plan B.

Adoption was, instead, Plan A!

  2. Lisa,Tague and family,
    We just received your web about your adoption..Wow whan an exciting, blown away by the Lord journey you are on. It is refresing to see families take the challege from the Lord to “Do something now” Most people would have just left it at one towel and a pair of socks never to thought of again… We will download the picture of Ruthie and be a prayer partner for you.
    All Glory and Honor to the Creator, who knew before the beginning of time , that at the right time you will hold in your arms, a daughter, who before she was formed, had already been placed by the Creator to come into your family. He knows the plans for us, plans for a future and one of Hope.This a God ordanined child from the beginning of time a perfect adoption………
    Eph. 3:20 comes to my mind”By the Power that is in us, He is ABLE to do EXCEEDINGLY, ABUNDANTLY,MORE THAN WE COULD DARE THINK OF, IMAGAINE, OR DREAM OF”…Your family is living our that verse..
    Journeying together for the Kingdom,
