God Moments

It's already happening! Let me give you the context. 

This weekend as we sat filling out paperwork for our home study I was overwhelmed to tears at the money due with the forms. We figured we could make this payment and the next two agency fees and then our supply of money for this adoption would run out. Up to this point in our lives, financial security has never been an issue. We have always had more than we need and have been able to give without it involving much faith. Essentially, we could rely on our bank account to provide for our needs and wants. But this adoption is a totally different ballgame. 

This journey is the biggest opportunity we've had to trust God as our Jehovah-Jireh. To trust that he takes care of his children and that it is his voice and his hand leading us to this little girl. I am so thankful for a husband who has unwavering faith when mine is so weak.

And just this morning we were blown away at God's provision. Today, when we needed to mail our check with our home study, our tax refunds came. The total was $400 over the checks due...just enough to pay for our online adoption training, fingerprinting and some legal documents! HOW GOOD IS THE LORD! 

And for the cherry on top, our home study agency charges additionally for families living over 30 miles away from their office. According to Mapquest, we live 29.15 miles apart and do not have to pay additionally.

Wanted to give some great praises for the incredibly encouraging things the Lord did for us today!
