Stir Crazy!

So I have officially become "stir crazy". I thought with how busy at work I've been, and how busy my Etsy shop has kept me..that surely I would just stay focused and not even think about the "wait" and then one day...BAM.... we'll be at #1 on the list and just waiting for our phone to ring. UGH..... why isn't it happening that way?

Today in my Jesus Calling book it said, "I know what you need, and I have promised to provide all of it - abundantly".
It went on to say, "Your sense of security must not rest in your possessions or in things going your way. I am training you to depend on Me alone, finding fulfillment in My Presence."

Well isn't that the truth!? God is sure training me! Amen to that!

It's the same thing over and over.... have patience, trust in God's timing, depend on the Lord through your wait..... SO MUCH EASIER to say, then to DO!

I have been praying that we see our baby's faces before Christmas. We are still at #5 on the list. It's not looking so good.
I am still believing that God can move mountains and connect us with our children. I know He can. I hate to put a time limit on it.... but at the same time I know that my God is an ALmighty God and He answers prayers!!!! So I will cling to that.

I'm going to continue to stay focused. One day at a time. One week at a time. One month at a time.


  1. Ahhh! I hate the waiting. It really is difficult. I'm hoping the process speeds up and that you do get to see your children by Christmas!

  2. It's hard to believe that this agonizing waiting time will ever be behind us, huh? Seems like you're doing all the right things--keeping busy, etc--but it is still so tough. Hang in there!

  3. Just wanted to check back in with you, to see how things are going. Good for you for staying positive and staying in His word. Ugh sooooo hard I bet to wait and wonder! You are an inspiration!!

  4. i am in the wait with you. i have found beth moore's "esther" study to be awesome in this season of waiting to be matched and waiting to bring our daughter home. i have also LOVED jesus calling- so often it speaks right to my anxiety and worry. anyway, looking forward to seeing you move from #5 to #1!!
