matching

well, this could be the week. the week we are “matched” with children. children that right now still belong to their biological parents who for a variety of reasons, aren’t able to care for them properly. or they may belong to the state, their parents rights already being permanently severed. but soon, in a few weeks, they will with live with us, in our home. and in a few months, they will be our children. permanently, forever.

a little overwhelming, but very exciting.

right now it’s down to a sibling group of 3 or a sibling group of 4. we have no idea what will happen, and maybe none of these children are meant to be ours. in which case we’ll just keep waiting.

and the waiting, though to some it may seem agonizing, we’re doing fine with it. we’d love to know, to meet our children. but, we know God knows and He’ll fill us in just in time. He’s done that so far. given us the answers right when we need them. we, at times, have spent months wondering about an answer to what ever hurdle we were trying to jump. and then months later we look back and are in awe of God’s timing.

and when we look back over our lives, how He has orchestrated everything so masterfully, it makes it even easier to wait on Him now.

He’s always been faithful.

“morning by morning i wake up to find
the power and comfort of God’s hand in mine
season by season i watch Him amazed,
in awe of the mystery of His perfect ways
all i have need of His hand will provide
He’s always been faithful to me
i can’t remember a trial or a pain
He did not recycle to bring me gain
i can’t remember one single regret in serving God only
and trusting His hand
all i have need of His hand will provide
He’s always been faithful to me
this is my anthem, this is my song,
the theme of the stories i’ve heard for so long
God has been faithful, He will be again
His loving compassion, it knows no end
all i have need of His hand will provide
He’s always been faithful to me”
–sara groves

so, we’ll keep you posted, of our match with our children.

and more importantly, of His faithfulness.
