You want to know why???

Because God is working and moving and answering prayers. And I cannot wait to see what He's going to do.

Last month, I was pulling files at work and praying about my life, where God is calling me to, and how I am supposed to make an impact for the fatherless. An idea popped into my head to start a another blog focused solely on our call to care for the orphans. I will post a monthly challenge, and I invite anyone to join me in it. I will be posting October's challenge soon. So I'd created the blog, This Next Generation, but had kept hesitating to release it or post about it. The Enemy kept whispering in my ear, "Nobody your age cares like you do. Nobody your age will read this blog." So I didn't continue with it. I set it aside for "another day", whenever that would be.

Yesterday I saw a sweet comment on my last post about a girl, Audrey, who is starting a new blog focused on the orphans. You can find it here.

Today I read a post on Ellie's blog about a new organization she is starting. I sat at my computer and tried not to cry because I felt as though she was writing the words that were on my heart that I have been unable to formulate into a post.

God is raising up people from this generation who have a passion for the orphans. God is raising up girls my age who want to see change. God is raising up teens who see James 1:27, "Religion that God accepts is pure and faultless is this: to care for the orphan and widows in their distress." And they don't just read it and say, "Someday, when I have money, or when I have time, or when I know what I'm doing with my life, I will do something about this verse." This generation is going to make a change. It's going to be one step at a time, one child at a time, one penny at a time, one prayer at a time. But I am confident that God is moving and I believe that His call is for everyone.

I am EXCITED to see what God is going to do and I am hopeful that He is going to be glorified.

I AM EXCITED about your new blog! And I can't wait to take a look at it! Oh and I love the name! :) After reading about what the Enemy was whispering to you, I automatically knew it was a lie. It isn't true, and I guess God showed you that through Audrey and Ellie. By the way, I found Audrey's blog through one of her comments on here, and I am EXCITED to be following her blog! Also I didn't know you read Ellie's blog! I love what God is doing through her, and I am so EXCITED about her new organization! I am actually thinking of attending the trip to Uganda with Etaala International. It's either there or somewhere else, I just don't know yet. I was so honored to actually meet her and her family a couple weeks ago! I was so neat, because I read all about them on their blogs!

Together we can rise up and be a generation of change!!!

To My Molly girl,

This is VERY VERY exciting!!! I am thrilled to hear about how God is knitting all of you young woman with a passion for orphans together. I can't wait to see how God unifies all of you and uses your combined efforts and ideas to serve and to awaken others to this great need.

WOW WHEE! This is just so cool I can hardly contain myself! I am jumping up and down in my chair!It is so neat how God is working!

May the Holy Spirit lead and inspire you as you take this step of faith to live out your calling and passion.

Much love,
Your Momma XOXO

I just now found this Molly. I've barely been able to really grasp how deep your love is, and wide the capacity is in your heart for so many, in your first blog, and now this! God is expanding your territory rapidly, and preparing you for great things in terms of standing in the gap for these precious little ones. I, like your momma am def. of the "older generation" but you have my prayers, affection, and total support. Thank you for loving so well. Your commitment will no doubt draw others to similar commitment, and I cannot wait to see how God uses all of you. Jule

I should have explained better....when I wrote "this" in above comment, I meant, just found the "next generation" site...but then I couldn't figure out how to leave comment there, so came back and left it here. I love this blog too, but meant newly found "next generation" one for this comment.
