Jehovah Jireh- The Lord Will Provide:

Jehovah Jireh, the name Moses calls God in Genesis 22 after God had provided a ram for the sacrifice. Abraham, being obedient, led his son Isaac to an altar uncertain of Gods plan or how he would do it. Yet as we know God provided a lamb for the sacrifice due to the obedience and faith of Abraham. We have known since we started this journey that we would have to sell our car due to lack of space for our new children. What we did not know was how it would work out..where was the right buyer, what vehicle should we get to replace? Should we buy the most car we could with the money from the sale or spend as little as possible on a older car and put the rest towards the adoption. In His infinite wisdom and perfect provision God has lived true to His name as Jehovah Jireh, our provider, and answered all of our questions in an amazing series of events. God not only sent a buyer for our car but provided a van for us in the same transaction!!! He has given us a fair price for the Equinox to be applied towards the adoption as well as a 2001
Chevy Minivan! Its amazing how He is always at work even when we don't see everything coming together. They way this series of events has come together leaves us with no other explanation than God put it all into place. We are so thankful for His provision and pray protection and peace over our vehicle sold and our new blessing that will comfortably fit our whole family to come.

Love is action

By this we know love, that he laid down his life for us, and we ought to lay down our lives for the brothers. But if anyone has the world’s goods and sees his brother in need, yet closes his heart against him, how does God’s love abide in him? Little children, let us not love in word or talk but in deed and in truth. 1 John 3:16-18

God, teach us to love

A few things

A few things today.

First, we've moved the blog to blogspot. A few more features and easier to work with. So, please follow us here or subscribe to RSS feed. We'd love for you to link to us, too! More awareness can mean more prayers, which these children need desperately, and ultimately means real concrete change in lives.

Good news! Our homestudy is on a desk in our agency's office!! Now, we are in our first opportunity to wait. My first impulse is to ask everyone for prayers that our agency will move at lightning speed, recognize the urgency in my heart, and get a copy to us in 2 minutes so I can mail the packet I already have prepared to USCIS . . . so I can wait on them? No, I'm asking instead that you pray for me to be patient, to trust God's timing, to rest in His provision for my children. I know today is just the beginning of learning this lesson through our journey. Pray that I will learn well everything God desires to teach me.
