In the bible, God’s word tells us in James 127 to “take care of the orphan.”  There are times in our lives that we have all felt the agony of being orphaned.  Maybe a family member died,  maybe a friend moved, maybe a job ended and we experience a pain and grief that almost kills us.  But for most of us, this season of life ends at some point, or something else comes along and fills that void.  For the orphan, this pain, this void will be with them until the day they die, unless….. Unless the love of God is birthed inside their heart and they allow Jesus Christ to become their everlasting father.  His word says in Psalm 68:5 that He will be a “father to the fatherless…”  My heart and soul beats for the orphan that cries themselves to sleep, that ask “why” everyday, that long for someone to tell them the words “I love you” and truly mean it.  I desire to see the orphan allow God to hold them in His arms and wrap them in His love and kindness! – Mama Shay
