A Spirit of Grace – Magdalie

Today I want to pray circles around a sweet girl who has a special place in my heart, Marie Julie Magdalie Joseph. I started sponsoring Magdalie last year, right after she got to the Mole orphanage. But it wasn’t till my internship this year that I got to meet her and let me tell you, she has a fun spunky personality! This girl’s not afraid to march to the beat of her own drum and she owns her personality with confidence and grace. She has such a big, beautiful smile, especially now that she’s missing her two front teeth! I love her big grin and also her laughter; she has such a contagious joy!!! I loved getting to spend time with her this summer just having fun and being silly! We got some great funny photos as Magdalie pulled out a ton of funny faces! Magdalie also has a huge, compassionate heart as she loves on her brothers and sisters and helps them out.

Today I just want to pray circles around this sweet girl and that God will continue to call her heart to Him, that she’ll grow in faith and love. I pray she learns to trust and rely on God throughout all life’s circumstances and that her faith will become a firm foundation on which she can stand upon confidently. I pray that she will be filled with the Spirit and that fruit will be grown in her life and that an overflowing of these fruit of the Spirit will allow her to share them with those around her. I pray she will shower those around her with the love of Christ and that God will cultivate in her a servant’s heart that is selfless and generous. I pray that above all she will always remember how much her Lord and Savior loves her and how her value cannot be found in anything else other than the price Christ was willing to pay to save her. I pray that she will hold onto this truth through it all and that she will be eager and ready to share the hope of her faith with the lost and hurting she encounters in this world. I pray that she will become a beautiful woman of God who follows in the plans He has for her and obediently lets the Spirit work through her life.

I’m also praying that God will call others to support and sponsor her as she grows and walks in down the paths God has planned for her. I pray that 6 more sponsors will join me in committing to sponsor her as we grow her family tree to have fully supported branches and deep roots connected to the source of life, which is Christ.
