Now that our applications have been accepted by WACAP and Partners For Adoption, we are ready to begin the home study process. Within the next month or two we will meet with a social worker who will inspect our home, and more importantly us, and collect tons more documentation to be sent to WACAP, and ultimately to the US and Thai governments.
We are definitely stepping out in faith as the new year and new semester approach. I am comforted by the words in Isaiah 40 that remind me how small we are in God’s eyes, and yet, how loved.
10 See, the Sovereign LORD comes with power,
and he rules with a mighty arm.
See, his reward is with him,
and his recompense accompanies him.
11 He tends his flock like a shepherd:
He gathers the lambs in his arms
and carries them close to his heart;
he gently leads those that have young.
12 Who has measured the waters in the hollow of his hand,
or with the breadth of his hand marked off the heavens?
Who has held the dust of the earth in a basket,
or weighed the mountains on the scales
and the hills in a balance?
13 Who can fathom the Spirit[d] of the LORD,
or instruct the LORD as his counselor?
14 Whom did the LORD consult to enlighten him,
and who taught him the right way?
Who was it that taught him knowledge,
or showed him the path of understanding?
So, even as we walk in uncertainty, I know that God has it under control, and that makes everything feel much more manageable.
