Rebound from meltdown




Dear Ones:

Man I needed this today. Don't you just love when someone is vulnerable as they walk their walk of faith. I have been on the verge of a meltdown since the news of yesterdays outcome. Something I had no control over whatsoever. This morning as I journaled I asked my Father to speak to me. Visiting Lysa's Blog today really spoke to me as I read her posts from the past few days.

This one especially. Because I so wanted the Lord to move mountains yesterday but instead as Lysa put it

"We serve a God who most certainly can move mountains.

But sometimes the greater revelations of God are discovered when He doesn’t move the mountain. Instead, He takes our hand and helps us climb up and over impossibilities one step at a time."

I still have to have faith. I daily have to admit I am desperate for God to work in our adoption situation. To work in my role as wife, mother to a herd, & friend.


Then I watched her video below: Be sure to mute the music below and enjoy what she has to say.


3 buckets:

Out of my control - focusing on these make me act out of control


In My control - My reaction (response) "My response is my responsibility

"


Under my influence - Prayer - I don't pray to change God but so God will change me.


Thank you for speaking to me today Daddy, I needed it and I am grateful for your constant affection for me.

NEVER EVER GIVE UP IN LIFE



Dear Ones:

Today was a HARD day. We had court for Big Sister today and termination was denied and Birth Parents have been given 6 more months. I literally cried all the way home and off and on all night. While browsing on Facebook tonight a friend had posted this video and I tell you I fell apart sobbing... thinking about the race I have been running and wanting to finish well and sometimes being absolutely weary with the pain. I have been reminded many times throughout today that the Father is with me and this was a beautiful story that put an image to that reality. Enjoy it and please keep praying because we are still hobbling on the track.

Living Loved
