I've recently been overwhelmed, even frustrated, with the cost of adoption. In my day-to-day life, I get annoyed when I realize that finances are all that stands in the way of us becoming parents. (Well, that and God's Sovereignty, but from a practical point, ya know...)
This week, all over the place, I have felt God whispering to me "I own the cattle on a thousand hills... you think the cost of your adoption is too much for me?". Yesterday, when meeting with a good friend, I was telling her that God keeps reminding me of the verse, but I couldn't remember where it was. Here it is: Psalm 50:10. Read the context too. God's reminder to me that He holds all of this in His hands--financially, timing, and otherwise.
I KNOW that God isn't disturbed by the cost of adoption, as reminded by a friend on Facebook. I KNOW that the frustration of finances (to me) isn't frustrating for God. He knows the beginning, middle and end of this story, and all I can see is the right now. I KNOW all these things in my head, but my heart is having a hard time recently.
Seeing this post tonight from our friends helped:
Did you catch that last sentence? Good reminder for me today. God's perfect timing.
