…that His timing is perfect.
When Andy and I really sat down + started discussing the steps towards adopting, I felt overwhelmed. I felt rushed. I felt behind. I felt like there were roadblocks in every direction. Or even? closed doors.
I realized that I was forcing my own timetable. I wanted things my way. I had a pretty little idea in my head of our life would play out over the next days, weeks, months + years, but yet? It all just was wrong.
Discouragement around each corner.
I began believing the lies.
You aren’t fit for it.
You’ll never be able to save enough money.
It’s too much paperwork, just give up.
I really began believing that this longing I’d had since I was young, even before I met Andy, about how my someday-family would be formed wasn’t to be.
Coincidentally, although I know it wasn’t just that, I began starting my day with His truth. Each day. First thing.
I was forced to give up my expectations. I was brought to my knees as He said
Let me walk you through this. I put this on your heart, and I’m there to see you through.
+ guess what?
Things started moving. The excitement came back as we continued to pray for our next son or daughter: someone whom He has always wonderfully planned.
Y’all? We have a Skype meeting with our agency this coming Thursday.
Yes, as in 3 days from now. We will be set into motion all of our final homestudy paperwork.
So I’m asking….
would you pray for us?
Pray that we would make the right decision if this agency is the one we are to use?
Pray that we would continue to surrender to His timing + His plan?
Pray that we would use His truth to combat the lies that so easily take over?
Happy Monday y’all!
