Continuing to wait

Just wanted to send you all a quick update..this will probably be the quickest update ever, because there isn’t any new news. We heard from our social worker out of North Carolina and everything is still at a standstill and they predict it will be like this until late summer. So we continue to wait. And that’s OK
But I haven’t been so “OK” with it over the last few weeks. I’ve been mad, frustrated, sad during Mothers Day and Fathers Day, and just not happy. I was tired of waiting.  Some of you have heard me talk about two little girls on my case load at work. They are sisters and are pretty much the office favorites. They are the highlight of my week when I get to visit them at home. They are waiting to be adopted and their social worker expects that they will be adopted by the end of summer. I started thinking how Adam and I could adopt them and how much joy they would bring to our home. I spoke with the girls’ social worker after a case meeting last week and asked what we would need to do if we were interested. She said their case is moving fast but she would move us right along if we were truly interested. I knew in my heart that God was saying “No” but I continued to argue with Him…which never turns out in my favor. Ha. So you can imagine how the conversation went when I told Adam “So, there’s these 2 girls who are waiting to be adopted….” He continues to use Adam to remind me of where God has called us and that we have committed ourselves to Moldova until that door closes.
I so want to take the easy way out in all of this but I know we can’t. We would be missing out on so much that God wants to show us and teach us. I was reading this morning in Matthew 16:15. Jesus asked Peter “Who do you say that I am?” I felt like it was Jesus asking me that question…”Who am I to you?”  I immediately thought of the power He has over death..He is victorious over everything and has power over everything. And He reminded me this morning that He can make the impossible POSSIBLE.  If I have learned anything over the last few years it’s that during these waiting periods the Lord shines the brightest and I know I don’t want to miss out on that.
Adam and I are praying over this verse today: Hebrews 11:1 “Faith is the confidence that what we hope for will actually happen; it gives us assurance about things we cannot see.”
We appreciate your continued prayers…thanks for checking in:)
