One Day At a Time
I just finished a skype with my family and already am seeing improvement in his countenance. Yesterday, it was so hard to even see him on the camera because I could read him like a book. Just devastated. Today, this morning, I talked to everyone as they were waking up and saw some smiles and even a little joy peeking back in. I'm not naive enough to think that a smiling face means a heart is healed. That will take time, patience, prayer and many reminders about God's sovereign plan. I've had to be reminded over the last couple of days. I've had to revisit our original calling and pray through my own doubts. I needed to reconfirm that the sadness he is going through is not because of my own selfish desire to adopt but because the Lord ordained it and He will supervise every thought and tear. I end this post by asking the question I have asked in countless blog posts. How do people without Christ survive? How are they not paralyzed with fear at such life altering decisions? How would we be able to bring another person into such drastic life changes if we didn't know that the Creator of the Universe had predestined it? There's just no way.
