I sat in the warmth of a sunbeam on our living room floor. I told My Father how sorry I was for my lack of faith and my lack of prayer. I had been trudging around in uncertainty of how the next set of funds were going to come, striving away with fundraisers, forgetting the most important thing… to daily ask HIM to be a part of them, for HIM to show HIS power, for HIS provision and glory to be made known. I committed to be intentional daily in my prayers about our fundraising efforts and in my journal I wrote “forgive me for not asking more frequently, for not believing in Your power and provision. I ask now… I ask that we raise the money for our next payment by the end of March. Help me to trust. Help me to believe. Please Lord, You get the glory”.
As of Monday night (March 5), we have all of the money (and then some… a good start on our next payment) in our adoption account to start our dossier.
There is more to say, more gratitude to give but for right now I’m going to keep it short and sweet because I can’t find any other words that seem adequate enough.
Thank you for being a part of the journey.
