"Job answered God: 'I'm convinced: You can do anything and everything. Nothing and noone can upset your plans.'" Job 42:1
Though I know on my last blog post I wanted to continue talking about you "burden bearers" out there...those of you that have friends or family that have dealt with infertility, adoption loss, miscarriage, loss of a child...However, right now something different is on my heart.
I have really struggled in past couple of weeks in resting in God's plan. You see, I'm kind of a text book perfectionist...which leads me thinking I can control things...which leads me to falsely believing (in a few recent situations) that my actions (or lack there of) will determine if we get "chosen" by a birth family. Take for example our adoption profile book and video...I had sleepless nights about these projects...stressed out...worried that they were not going to be "good enough"...actually believing that if we had a sub par profile book we would be overlooked by potential birthparents. Thankfully, God used His Word, my sweet husband, and the phone call of a friend to remind me that Nothing can stand in the way of God bringing this sweet child into our home...not a typo on the first page of our profile book (which I found two days after the order was placed)...or having what I thought were "too many" pictures in our video (a conclusion I came to a week after the video had been created and rendered)...or our caseworker being a few days behind on getting our homestudy finalized (we were supposed to be approved Monday, but now it's looking more like tomorrow or the beginning of next week)...none of these things are going to upset God's ultimate plan for our family!
So, maybe you are like me...things do not go as "planned" or things may be getting in the way of "your timing"...just remember that there is not one single outside obstacle that can get in the way of God accomplishing His perfect will for our lives!
Typo or not, He is going to bring the right child into our home in His perfect time...and nothing is going to get in the way of that as long as our eyes stay focused on Him.
