Prayer for Wednesday

5 days and counting until our court date...

I am trusting God's best for our family. As a woman it is so hard to not obsess over it. Thoughts permeate my mind constantly all the while I am trying to channel them into prayers. I want to have the childlike faith of my girls - I seem to have guarded my heart trying to prepare for the "what-if" situations, but that is not how God wants me to live. He wants me to wholly abandon the worldly scenarios that I play in my mind and to fully trust him.

Adoption is the most mentally - emotionally exhausting thing that I have ever done, but I wouldn't change it for anything. It has taught me so many things about God's character. It has brought a deeper understanding of God and who he is and what he has done for me through adoption.

I wanted to be able to share with the boys all the people who prayed for us. Would you leave a comment with your name and state in which you live? Then I can put it on a map for them to see God's people uniting at his throne of Grace. I know I will be blessed right now and they will be blessed in the future when they can understand.

"Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, and give thanks in all circumstances for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you." 1Thessalonians 5:16-18

I just recently found your blog and have joined in praying for your little ones and for this court date. We have 2 precious little ones in Ethiopia too, and had 2 courts dates in Aug that weren't complete (thanks to the rainy season...) and are still waiting to hear when our next date will be!!! I found it so hard to trust during the time of the court dates... and can get so anxious now as we wait...which helps nothing!!! May you be filled with peace as you wait and may you get that exciting news that makes them officially yours!!
Blessings,
