I’ve questioned many times in the last three years why God seems to like to make us wait. There have been days where I have felt like I honestly could not handle the weight of waiting any longer, it felt like a physical pressure on my chest, one that was affecting my ability to breathe.
In the last year there were many days where I wondered if the road towards adoption would close to us again, for good this time. I was starting to doubt that it would actually happen. To say the last few months have been a struggle would be fairly accurate.
When we finally got that call it felt like the weight had been lifted. Even though we are still in a stage of finding out details (like when we can go pick him up!), we know we have a son, we know his birth date and we’ve seen his photo.
The waiting will continue for a little while but somehow it seems easier knowing who we are waiting for.
I always go back to these verses that first clicked for me when I read them ten years ago:
Wait for the Lord;
be strong and take heart
and wait for the Lord.
Whatever it is that you are waiting for during this season, can I just say; I understand, it’s hard, but it’s worth it.
Glory to God, who is able, through his mighty power at work within us,
to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think.

Hi Friend, I would love for you to sign up for my seasonal-ish newsletter! I would love to send it monthly but I feel like in this season of my life that will probably not happen but I would like to commit to sending one out at least every three months.
In the newsletter you can expect little (or big!) life updates, what I've been reading in the Bible, and all sorts of resources I've been loving and lessons God has been teaching me.
