"Great peace have those who love your law; nothing can make them stumble."~Psalm 119:165
I have never been in a place where I am so at peace before. I KNOW that I am at peace because I have so many friends and blog friends that are pregnant and/or adopting soon. Before, I would have been jealous, upset, or feeling sorry for myself because they all have what I want to have...a baby. But instead, I feel happy, excited for them, and looking forward to seeing how this new baby changes their lives for the better. Without God's peace, I NEVER would have felt this way before.
"You keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on you, because he trusts in you."~Isaiah 26:3
I was so excited to finally have our Home Study official a few weeks ago and have been praying and asking God to let us know where we should go from here. Should we look for agencies to help us find a baby? Should we just wait and hope that a birthmother contacts us? We still have not given up on trying to have a biological child.
"I have said these things to you, that in me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world.”~John 16:33
Peace, my friends, PEACE...what a feeling!
