THE SEVEN STONES OF ADOPTION

    We said yes to a medically complex newborn baby and then had 5 days (FIVE DAYS!!!) to squeeze in two homestudy visits, fingerprinting, and a physical, along with prepping to get a baby (as our youngest was 4.5 yrs old and we had ZERO baby things), organize cross-country travel details, including a place to stay for 4-6 weeks AND fund a fairly pricy adoption. In FIVE days. We had no clue how we'd be able to accomplish it all. And so we prayed and God showed us what we lovingly call, our Red Sea Road. This wasn't traveling on an unfamiliar road...there literally was no road visible! So we gave God our yes and then He parted the seas. Our social worker moved mountains to get our homestudy done, and people gathered baby things, and friends offered their home and got us a car, and people gave generously to fund our adoption. I don't know what path you are on. Maybe you feel God leading you down an uncertain path. Maybe you feel trapped, with no way out. The road may be hidden. But you can trust that God will make a way. Sometimes you must make the first step in faith. What does your view currently look like? Are you facing an angry sea in your path? What does your first faith step (or leap of faith) look like?

    Father, You told me to come and it feels like I have been getting out of this boat for 9 long months. But truthfully, you only told me to get in the boat and cross. You told me you were going to come for me. It is not that time yet. This is still the dark night, and I am only to battle the wind and waves while I wait and watch for you. Soon you will come walking across the water, brighter than the stars, and you will lead me in your paths. Thank you for your promises. Thank you for coming. While I wait here, make me strong. Give me your patience. Bring me your peace. Your words are my strength, my shield, and my comfort. In your words, I can rest until you call me out of the boat. Amen. Share a prayer for your wait below.

    The best thing about tribes is how they show up big and love hard. How does your tribe love you? What does that mean to you? What ways are you needing this Village to love you hard this week?
