In His Time

In His time...  Sometimes those word seem so trite.  It's as if we are trying to sound so spiritual, when inside we are boiling over with impatience.  We forget how God has blessed us in the past and how His ways are not our ways.  We live in a fast food society.  There is no such thing as stopping to smell the Roses anymore.  We forgotten how to wait upon the Lord.  But when we do, He blesses us.  He gives us strength and stamina.  He takes us to heights that we have never seen before.  We just need to learn to wait.

This is the lesson that I've learned in our journey to adopt Sammie.  I can remember telling Janet when we were talking about adoption, "I don't see how this is ever going to happen."  I had gotten to the point, that I was just going to give up, and God gave us Sammie.  I am so overwhelmed with the graciousness of God.

My next prayer is that Janet will be able to stay home for the children.  I really don't see how that is ever going to happen.  I'm excited to see how God is going to bring it about.


  1. What's the reluctance to have Janet stay home? If it's the money, you'd be amazed how much does NOT get spent when you aren't "working". Also and most importantly, if you truly feel that God is calling Janet to this, He WILL provide. There are a lot of sacrifices when there aren't 2 incomes, but they are material and temporary. When you stay home with your kids, the rewards are stored as treasure in Heaven. I just really want to be an encouragement to your family. If it's right for your family it is soooo worth it!

  2. It's not really about what's being spent as much as it is about what's already going out.
