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
