The Waiting Game
I received confirmation that ALL of our adoption references have been turned in!!!! We are so excited. However, this begins a case of "hurry up and wait." We are now waiting for confirmation from the orphanage that we have been added to their waiting list. Then, we will be waiting for a referral...then waiting for a court date...then waiting to bring home our child. I don't know about you, but I'm not very good at waiting. I don't like long lines, traffic jams, or delays at the airport! I do think that waiting has a purpose at times, though. God has used "waiting times" to teach me to rely on him more fully. In this time of waiting, I'm reminded of the scripture "...but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint." Isaiah 40:31 NIV So, waiting isn't so bad with the Lord renewing your strength and reaffirming His promises to you. I think I can...I think I can!
