Dwelling on Faithfulness

When things are out of my control I am prone to worry. And if you have followed this adoption journey at all you know that there are a whole lot of issues that are out of my control… like when I told you our home study was done. Well… I spoke too soon. We had to go back and re-submit a document. So maybe it will be done this week.

But even in that, God has had a perfect plan. You see, until yesterday we weren’t able to pay for the next phase of the adoption. God showed his faithfulness when I doubted his timing.

And he showed his faithfulness in His provision. At just the right time He provided what we needed. In my head I know I can always trust his timing and provision. I just wish I could get my heart to believe it all the time too. He has proven his faithfulness to me over and over… and over and over again. Why do I doubt? Why do I worry?

I am so thankful for those around me that point me back to the reality of the Gospel; that remind me of God’s never changing character and unwavering faithfulness… even when I have only a mustard-seed worth of faith. And I am so thankful for those that sacrifice so much to be part of the work God is doing to bring our girl home. I am so humbled.

What encourages you when you are having trouble believing in your heart what you know to be true about God? A verse? A song?… Let me know.
