Wow! It has been a crazy 15 days! Each day, each hour, each second bringing something new into our lives. If it was paperwork, sickness, contractions, exhaustion, a third trip to the Secretary of States office and the list could go on.
Last week as we were heading to the Chinese Consulate as everyone was sleeping, a song came onto my spotify that I had never heard before. God usually for me uses music many times to speak to me and bring His word and promises to mind.
The words of this song brought me back to so many verses God has given to us as we sought to know if we were called to adoption.
I love the whispers from God in our hearts when He is ministering to our spirits.
"I know the plans I have for you" "My grace is sufficient for you, because my strength is made perfect in your weakness" "Look unto me. I am the author of this story"
"Be still and Know that I am God"
Only God could have written this story for us. When we lost Lliam I begged God to bring beauty to the ashes of grief in my heart. I held on to knowing his plans are always greater than mine. Little did I know he would bring a little boy that gripped our hearts before we knew him, a little boy he called us to adopt before we knew how he would "fit" into our family. Every time leading to the decision to sign the contract for his adoption we begged for the doors to be closed if we were walking into something we shouldn't be and every step God has provided the money, the time, the correct documents, EVERYTHING.
The past 15 days I have had to go back to these things. I look back on the promises fulfilled, the calling affirmed.
Over the last 15 days our need for the payment amount of $6,000 is now been whittled down little by little to just a little over $2300! That is God. I know that is something some of my friends may not believe in, but it is no denying its a miracle. We are thankful, blessed and humbled by this.
We are thankful for those who have supported our adoption with prayer, giving of time, sacrificing their schedule to help us, sacrificing financially because of their desire to support adoption in the ways that they can.
