When I was five years old, my parents separated, and...

He chose us in him, … having predestined us to adoption as sons by Jesus Christ to himself, according to the good pleasure of his will.
Ephesians 1:4.5

When I was five years old, my parents separated, and I was put into an orphanage. One day a married couple visited us, wanting to adopt a child. I saw them standing there choosing, and I hoped they would take me. I longed for a home, a father and a mother. But they took someone else.

Years passed. Many couples came and made their choice, and I always remained behind. I still hope and longed fervently: I wanted to belong somewhere. But nobody wanted me. Once I asked the housemother, “Won’t anyone have me?” she just shrugged her shoulders and said, “I don’t know. Perhaps they will one day.” But it never happened.

When I grew older, I went into other homes: hostels, transitional lodgings, places of detention. Now I have been in prison for many years. Here, for the first time ever I heard of Jesus. A preacher read the Bible with us and told us that God loves us.

I have accepted Jesus Christ as my Saviour and started to read the Bible. I soon found the passage: “chosen in him … and predestined to adoption as sons by Jesus Christ”. There I discovered that God has chosen me and accepted me as a son! Formerly no-one wanted me; now I belong to Him. With Him I have found a new home. Through the new birth I am now a child of God and belong to God’s family.

Today’s reading: Ruth 2:1-23 · Psalm 78:1-16
