Okay – I caved and called. Not because of the security code sign – my husband set me straight on that real quick like. I was just curious and couldn’t wait any longer.
They said our case was released to go to court on Friday. Yay!
MOWA decided to close for two weeks starting today.
So…now we wait to see if our case has the paperwork we need from them to pass.
Or, it couldn’t.
I’m praying it does.
Okay – God spoke to me while I was cleaning the bathroom this afternoon. One of the verses my husband sent me was Psalm 40:1.
Psalm 40:1-3 I waited patiently for the Lord; he inclined to me and heard my cry. He drew me up from the pit of destruction, out of the miry bog, and set my feet upon a rock, making my steps secure. He put a new song in my mouth, a song of praise to our God. Many will see and fear, and put their trust in the Lord.
I was thinking about that verse as I cleaned, especially verse 3 about many seeing and putting their trust in the Lord. I kept telling God (I know, I do that all the time - scary!) how He needs to do something mighty and big in this so we can all see that only He could work that huge miracle and He would be glorified. But, then He spoke to my heart and I realized who am I to tell God what’s going to glorify Him? He can be glorified however He wants. My job is to praise Him regardless of what I see happening.
I am also praying for the other families in this abandonment delay. Not everyone has been given court dates and I know that makes it harder. Adoption is tough. But, God doesn’t ask us to do easy things. Instead, He strengthens us so we can get through them. I know I feel stronger.
Thank you for all of your prayers and moral support!
