So, it's been almost a year since I left off telling our adoption story. I'm sure you've all just been chomping at the bit to hear the rest, huh? Truth be told, I've been just putting it off because, well.....this part makes me look like the Queen of Selfishness and makes Scot look like the King of Faithlessness or more aptly, we'd be the Duke and Duchess of Selfish Faithlessness. It's not a pretty combo, really.
I started a post that sounded a lot like whining and dripped with self-pity because tonight is the night the new WC list comes out- the list we assumed we'd be matched from.
- If you don't wait, it could cost you. Remember what Esau traded away for a bowl of soup because he let his stomach go to his head? (Genesis 25)
- Don't get tired of doing the right thing. If only the Israelites had kept on following God instead of the crowd! (Exodus 19; 32)
- Don't miss out because you think you can't wait. Have you ever thought about what Joshua and the Israelites would've missed if they hadn't followed God's marching orders? (Joshua 3; 6)
- If you don't wait, it could hurt others. There are "gasoline girls" and there are "water boys." Which one are you? (Proverbs 15:18)
Last month, I posed about the "Other Side of the Waiting" asking you to praying with me that the little guy we have been praying for would be matched that month (April). I just wanted to thank you SO much for your prayers, and let you know that God answered them- before we even prayed them- and he delivered the answer to us at the very end of last month.
