Kathleen Cope tells the story of God’s faithfulness and redemption of her own journey through childhood trauma and adoption as an older child.
Kathleen Cope is wife to Andrew and mom to their four fun-loving kiddos. She lives just south of Charlotte in Rock Hill, SC where she is an active leader in her local church and community. She’s a writer, speaker, blogger who loves Jesus, the Word and a good cup of coffee.
This is the story of God’s faithfulness to me–of God saving me, God rescuing me and God redeeming me.
Because I took on the caretaker role, I also took on the role of the scapegoat.
God is so good to pursue us, and He continued to pursue me.
When we are walking through hard things, we are really aware of other people’s pain and needs.
This world is broken, and it can only be changed by Jesus.
God was really showing me what it was like to be loved unconditionally.
We aren’t going to love our kids perfectly. That’s why we have to point our kids to Jesus who can love them completely unconditionally.
We quickly learned that if doors were going to be opened for us in ministry, we were going to have to pray.
God keeps coming back to this same theme in my life: Kathleen, I really do love you. I love you even more than you can comprehend.
If Jesus who was perfect, lived a life of suffering, how can I expect to live anything different? The fact that I am not suffering right now is only His grace.
