From Steven Curtis Chapman’s “What Now”
I saw the face of Jesus in a little orphan girl
She was standing in the corner on the other side of the world
And I heard the voice of Jesus gently whisper to my heart
Didn’t you say you wanted to find me?
Well here I am, here you are
So, What now?
What will you do now that you found Me?
What now?
What will you do with this treasure you’ve found?
I know I may not look like what you expected
But if you remember this is right where I said I would be
You’ve found me
What now?

My heart aches for the orphans of the world.  Praying.

  1. Dwan, wow. You know this TUGs at my heart and prayers. Wow. Wow. I’m speechless. The Holy Spirit may speak in numerous different ways, and your sweet poem was one of them. I was just talking to Cindy & Catherine tonight about my “Emaline Joy” (my name for a little girl) — and if she would ever exist. Cindy said, “She may already exist” . and then I read your poem. Tears.

  2. That is a beautiful song, but a challenging one as well, because there are soooo many orphans in the world, and so once we really see them, the question becomes: well, what now? I am not in a stage of life to adopt right now, although I would love to be someday, and so for now that “what now” question is supporting those who are at that point. But Brittany, I froze when I saw the name you have picked out for your hopefully someday daughter, because I have long set aside the name “Emmaline Hope” for a daughter, were I to adopt from Eastern Europe. I too have recently been stuck with the thought that for me personally, if I am called to adopt an older child, she could already exist, which is a really hard thought.
