One Step Closer
Today I have been blown away again by God's faithfulness and the generosity of his people! Through this process so far, God has taught me a lot, but, I still struggle with discouragement and anxiety about the financial part of this adoption. This morning I read Ps 125:1 "Those who trust in the Lord are like Mount Zion which cannot be moved...". I want to be like that. I want to stand strong in my faith and in my trust in God when tough things come my way. I don't want to be shaken by things that are really no big deal for God. I want to keep my eyes on HIM instead of the circumstances. I'm SO thankful for His grace! I got a text today from someone that really doesn't know me very well. She asked me to meet her in Knoxville. When I met her, she handed me a check for our adoption. I was completely blown away by the amount. We've been trying to raise the money to file our I-600a and this check made up the difference that we needed! I've fought back tears all day! I'm so humbled by this family, so grateful to God, so excited that we are going to be one step closer to our babies!!!
