There hasn’t been much blogging going on because there isn’t much to blog about. We are still raising funds and seeking the Lord about the child that He has for us. Wading through some red tape (not thread) and other craziness that has been unexpected, but it is ok as we are confident that God is as sovereign over our individual adoption as He is over the stars in the sky.
Through the stress we won’t be shaken. Every time that we have ever stepped out in faith we have encountered attack, and through God’s grace have prevailed. We choose to trust in the Lord, to know that He has our back, and we will rest in His authority alone. We believe that the same promise God made to Judah applies to us in this situation as well:
And he said, “Listen, all Judah and inhabitants of Jerusalem and King Jehoshaphat: Thus says the Lord to you, ‘Do not be afraid and do not be dismayed at this great horde, for the battle is not yours but God’s.
