My friend Brent Gudgel at Deidox.com just sent me this short film called “Deidox: The Ivey Family.” It’s about adoption (and Haiti), and ultimately how we are adopted into God’s family. I found it moving.
 
More of us need to consider taking sons and daughters into our families. The adoption doesn’t have to be this official – it’s all about a spiritual transaction that occurs where you offer protection and provision to someone who needs it. It happens in the spirit first and then the reality manifests just like it did for the Ivey family.
 
God intends for us to have many sons and daughters. You begin by taking them into your heart and then you follow God’s leading in how he wants you to be a parent. You may well end up fighting to liberate your son or daughter. That’s what parents do.
 
Have fun watching it!

  • i really needed to read this and see this tonight. Thank you for posting it. So much spiritual attack has come against my heart since coming to India in regards to Cambodia and the children. So thank you for this reminder I love what you said, you welcome them into your heart first, then what is accomplished in the spirit first, then manifests itself in the physical. Thank you again Unc Seth.

  • Dear Daddy Seth,

  • Glad that you all liked it.

    Kristen, stand strong with what God has shown you. It will be worth it. Those children need you to fight for them.

  • So beautiful! We followed their blogs for several years while they finalized their second adoption (Story) and began the process for Amos. They are an amazing couple that has sacrificed so much to build their family like this. Real Hope for Haiti is the ministry that kept Amos until his adoption: http://www.realhopeforhaiti.org/

I'm motivated to join God in his global reclamation project. He's on the move, setting his sons and daughters free from their places of captivity. And he's partnering with those of us who have been freed to go and free others.
