"Be Still and Know that I am God."
It is written on the wall in our upstairs room. The room that allows me to "get alone." It is also on our daughter's nursery wall....
The adoption process is a hard one. I have struggled for the past 6 months it seems like. I struggled waiting on a referral. Then we got our referral and I was good (for like 1 week). Then I struggled again waiting on our court date. I felt like I had lost the "fight" in me.
You see, in our adoption, I have realized I need a good balance of fight and stillness. To me, the two contradict each other.
I have let my heart be in the process but then at times, left it out in the cold so that I could handle the process. I have engaged in the process yet at times pretended like it wasn't happening so I could handle it all.
But this past week...something happened. I found my "fight" and determination to continue on in the journey to our little girl. I had grown weary but have been renewed.
I also realized that I was focusing more on the first part of the verse. The key is in the second part. KNOW THAT I AM GOD.
I am trusting in that part. God is providing us with unbelievable peace right now....to which I am so thankful.
“I am sure God keeps no one waiting unless that is good for us to wait.”
- C.S. Lewis
Praying for a courtdate soon :)
