Habakkuk ~ Words to Hold Onto

Trying to BELIEVE that God IS DOING SOMETHING.  That we WILL have our own day!  That He will blow our minds and bless our socks off as He finalizes this adoption.  I am trying to hold fast to this belief ~ even amidst the silence of this rainy season.  

No progress has been made.  The orphanage has not yet provided the needed clearance decree for MOWCYA.  Therefore, still no MOWCYA letter.  The rainy season makes it very challenging to accomplish tasks such as these.

The silence is deafening.  And I am growing weary.  So, I remind myself of God's infinite POWER and of His ever-loving plan to bring us together as a family.  

I remind myself (often daily or even moment-by-moment) of this verse.......

For I am doing something in your own day, 
something you wouldn't believe 
even if someone told you about it.
~ Habakkuk 1:5, NLT

I think of you so often, Debb, and continue to lift you up in prayer. We are battling the deafening, stifling silence over here too, though not with the intensity of your situation, having already met, held, and loved baby K. Keep claiming His promises. He is faithful, and I'm convinced one of His primary lessons in this crazy waiting season is to show us how magnificent His faithfulness is, and how worthy He is to be trusted. Love to you <3

praying sweet, Debb... for your heart. This wait is just plain aweful. and yet like you said God in His infinite power IS in control. It has helped me to remember during this long journey, that He IS Sovereign. Cling tightly to Him. He WILL sustain you/us.

Love you!

Scripture comes alive in ways that we cannot imagine when we are waiting and grieving. THAT makes it worth it, but I know your longing. Standing and praying with you!
