How we roll....
So many have asked us how we continue. With all the challenges we have faced on this adoption journey, most people tell us they would have quit. I am not saying that our continuing has been peace-filled and comfortable. There have been days filled with tears and thoughts of..."are you sure you have chosen the right family for this mission?"
But through it all, Bob and I stand together, trusting Jesus. Confident in the knowledge that, no matter what our situation looks like in the nature...GOD'S GOT IT.
We have only to open our bible and read what Jesus said when challenged and tempted by Satan, during His time in the wilderness. We stand on that .... wrapping ourselves in His Holy Word, walking in total faith, confident it is TRUTH.
For "IT IS WRITTEN"... the words Jesus spoke to Satan, "IT IS WRITTEN"... followed by scripture.
Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the LORD your God is with you wherever you go. Joshua 1:9
Be strong and courageous. Do not fear or be in dread of them, for it is the LORD your God who goes with you. He will not leave you or forsake you. Deut. 31:6
Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of his might. Eph. 6:10
The LORD is my strength and my shield; in him my heart trusts, and I am helped; my heart exults, and with my song I give thanks to him. Psalm 28:7
I will go in the strength of the Lord GOD; I will make mention of Your righteousness, of Yours only. Psalm 71:16
But they who wait for the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint. Isaiah 40:31
Do you not know that those who run in a race all run, but one receives the prize? Run in such a way that you may obtain it. I Cor. 9:24
Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us also lay aside every weight, and sin which clings so closely, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, Heb. 12:1
Not by might, nor by power, but by my Spirit, says the LORD of hosts. Zech. 4:6
For God gave us a spirit not of fear but of power and love and self-control. II Tim. 1:7
It is God who arms me with strength, And makes my way perfect. Psalm 18:32
And my favorite...
So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand. Isaiah 41:10
For I am the LORD, your God, who takes hold of your right hand and says to you, Do not fear; I will help you. Isaiah 41:13
We also shared and instilled His Holy Word in to a very special girl.
To God be the Glory!!.
