As Long as You are Glorified

I have written before how much of this adoption journey has been one of me learning to trust the Lord.   This past week I traveled to GA to meet our expectant mom.  I dropped the kids off with the in-laws on Monday so I could get going to the airport early Tuesday.  A happy consequence of dropping them off the day before was date night with Husband!  As we sat and ate our tasty Thai food we talked about some of our frustrations, concerns, and upcoming trip.  We came home to take a walk and checked the mail to find another generous donation from some of church family.  Once again, the Lord’s perfect timing.  With each step that we take and each time we ask, how Lord?!  He continues to gently urge us to trust and abide in Him.

Music is one of the ways the Lord often teaches me.  Tuesday morning as I was running out of the house, a bit later than scheduled, I grabbed Sovereign Grace’s “Come Weary Saints” album to listen to as I drove the two hours to the airport.  I’ve never listened to this album and don’t quite know how we came to have the CD.  I put it in and within 10 minutes had one song on repeat.  The lyrics are as follows:

Shall I take from Your hand Your blessings
Yet not welcome any pain?
Shall I thank You for days of sunshine
Yet grumble in days of rain?
Shall I love You in times of plenty
Then leave You in days of drought?
Shall I trust when I reap a harvest
But when winter winds blow, then doubt?

Oh let Your will be done in me
In Your love I will abide
Oh I long for nothing else as long
As You are glorified

So quiet my restless heart
Quiet my restless heart
Quiet my restless heart in You

The Body At Work

Seeing the Body of Christ at work has been and continues to be one of the most encouraging parts of this adoption journey.  What a tremendous blessing!  We have had brothers and sisters in Christ walk with us, pray for us, and help us each step of the way.

Next week I will travel to meet our expectant mom.  I am so thankful for this opportunity to meet and love on her before baby comes.  In planning the trip we wanted to be wise stewards of what the Lord had given us.  Knowing that I would need to stay overnight during the trip I knew I would need to find a hotel for at least one night.  I began praying for the Lord to provide for that night.  I was initially thinking someone might donate hotel points or perhaps it was driving a Caddy?!  God had even better plans!
