We continue to wait on news with a tremendous ache in our hearts. Last night we were hit with quite a jolt-some more unknown with the process. We are now waiting to hear from our agency that things are able to continue to progress. It has now been just about 1 year since we started this journey. Who would have ever thought there would be the ups and downs that we have experienced-only God!
In the midst of crying out to God (through last night and this morning)to try to understand all that is going on, a good friend sent me a good reminder. "Let the morning bring me word of your unfailing love, for I have put my trust in you. Show me the way I should go, for to you I lift up my soul." Psalm 143:8.
What a peace after spending time refreshing myself in God's word and the warmth of His embrace He gave. I do put my total trust in Him that He is in the drivers seat and I just need to put my head back in the passenger seat and say "Go Ahead, I trust you to get us to where we are to be".
Even if the purposes of the potholes (like the ones in our driveway :) ) are to just get us to slow down and be reminded to trust that God will not just get us past these but make the repairs along the way.
I don't believe that God gave us this passion for just to see the need but to make a difference in the life of a little one who is in need of a family at least as much as we need her.
Little one of ours, we are ready, but we understand that for whatever reason it is not our time to be together yet and pray that God is caring for you in His own way more than we could ever love or care for you and we all look forward to the moment we can be together as a family of five where ever you may be.
