Sitting in the middle....
I have to admit this to you as well as to myself. Waiting has never been something I have done gracefully. I try to push through and get things done on my own strength.
Through this whole adoption process The Lord has taught me how to wait on him. I'm not good at it but at least I feel I have moved from the driver's seat to the seat in the middle. You remember that seat when you were younger the bench seat up front.Mom would sit on one side and dad on the other and me in the middle..Well that's where I am driving down this adoption road. Sitting in the middle seat and telling God "you should of turned there" and Him saying "who's driving" well you are Lord. He looks at me and tells me He knows exactly where he is going and he does not need me to tell him how to get there or where to turn. He does not need me to tell him when we need to leave.So I sit back and relax knowing that he has it all under control and knowing that my life, our adoption, my dad, Joesph are all under His control and I can trust him... I can enjoy the ride and know that I can sleep because he is driving.
Be strong and courageous.
Do not be terrified;do not be discouraged,
for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.
Thank you Lord,
