Whenever you've made up your mind to reach your destination, any hesitation on your part will cause you to be delayed in getting to where you need to go. When you decide to follow Christ, your steps are ordered by the One who knows you and knows all about you. If you get caught up with distractions, you'll miss what's in front of you. What God has for you is in front of you, not behind you or beside you, but in front of you.
This is what I prayed today. There are so many distractions all around me - some of them legitimate. Sick babies, job stress, money, etc. However, none of them are as powerful as what God has in store for our family! I am going to try to view the next week (pending home study visit with no funds yet) as a "done deal!" I am beginning to personally coin the phrase "fly on faith" for our adoption. What other way will we succeed? Odds are stacked against us. God is for us.
