Honestly, these past couple of weeks have been hard waiting for a court date. I feel the spiritual battle raging because Satan hates the word "FAMILY." He does not want us to feel belonged, loved, chosen, wanted, cherished, and adopted. He thrives on keeping us distracted, busy, overwhelmed, and unsatisfied.

I have been praying for our boys night and day. One night, it felt like I was up more than I was sleeping, but it was the best opportunity to plead with the Father to bring our boys home.

This morning I sat at my desk and I had nothing to say God. I couldn't even put words into a prayer. When I feel like this, I open my bible to the Psalms because there are always words that I feel and that I can say to God. This morning my eyes fell to Psalm 61 verse 1 and 2.

Hear my cry, O God listen to my prayer;
From the end of the earth
I call to you when my heart is faint.

Just after I read those verses I had a verse come to mind about waiting for the Lord...Be strong! I had to bible reference it because I could only remember that it was at the end of a psalm. (My bible is relatively new and so I don't have all the underlines and highlights in it like my old one does.) But I found it. Psalm 27:14

Wait for the Lord;
be Strong, and let your heart take courage;
wait for the LORD!

I stand in full confidence that God hears my cry, He wants to grow our family with our boys. I am rest in peace knowing God's timing is perfect. Today I am going to Be strong and wait for the LORD!
