Today marks 3months since we have been on deck, meaning next in line to recieve a referral for our children. Almost 7 months since our dossier was sent to Ethiopia, and still no word. I am suprised that we have not heard anything yet, but God is not. He will bring our children to us according to His perfect will and timing. I find comfort in His word, knowing the Lord has much to say about waiting on Him.
Wait for the LORD; be strong and take heart and wait for the LORD.
We wait in hope for the LORD; he is our help and our shield.
I wait for you, O LORD; you will answer, O Lord my God.
Yet the LORD longs to be gracious to you; he rises to show you compassion. For the LORD is a God of justice. Blessed are all who wait for him!
But those who wait on 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.
I came across this article from the Denver post and am so encouraged to see that God is at work in the lives of orphans, how blessed we are to be a part of what the Lord is doing! Please read this and consider how you might take an active role in meeting the needs of the orphaned.
