He Is Faithful

Tuesday, August 25, 2009

Just another reminder that we serve a faithful God. As we are walking this new adventure, we are holding onto the Trust that God is in control and placing all our Hopes in Christ.

Just 2 months ago, we were celebrating the start of what we thought would be our journey towards our first child....

(Filling out our application and child request for an Ethiopian adoption!)

Only to be surprised that God had other plans for us right now! I have moments of worry and what-ifs, but am constantly reminded and assured that we all are truly at God's mercy. We need only to align ourselves with Him and His plan, and all will fall into place. It may not be perfect, or the way we had planned, but it will be in His plan.

This verse that my dad gave me over 12 years ago has never meant more to me than it does right now:

"May the God of HOPE fill you with all JOY and PEACE as you trust in Him so that you may OVERFLOW with HOPE by the POWER of the Holy Spirit." Romans 15:13

PS- Sean and I are still super passionate about adoption and cannot wait for the day when we grow our family that way, too!

  1. It's so amazing how similar our lives are Shey..it gives me the chills. I say it because back in April right after our missions trip to Mexico we came back really excited to adopt. We contacted several people and we're going to pray and look for agencies. We were looking at adopting from Mexico. Well, like you guys, 3 months later we were totally surprised annd blessed with the news that God has blessed my womb. I believe that God saw our humble and willing hearts and honored them! We would still like to adopt one day...there are so many children out there. I always think of you when I think about how far along I am:D
