Today I'm really trying to choose to be Mary and not Martha. I'm trying to sit quietly at His feet and hear all He has for me...to bask in his presence and just trust Him take care of all that is needed. I've been stepping back from adding more fundraisers and working out this great financial need, however, we do have this commitment to the Applebees fundraiser that I'm praying will be successful enough to even happen.
I don't believe God wants me to keep pushing for the funds but to sit patiently.
Last week we received approximately $900 in donations! I cannot tell you how encouraging and what a blessing it had been. I keep waiting to login and find a large sum of money has been donated to our account. Its not that I think anyone owes it to us or necessarily that anyone should (unless the Lord is prompting you to), its just that I believe the Lord has a plan and it will unfold without all the planning and laboring.
Alyssa and Piper are His children. The desire for us to adopt them was first His. It is their lives that hang in the balance, not ours. I'm not saying that to say that it doesn't matter to us, it most certainly does, He has given me a mother's heart for these girls for sure. I say that because this is not about us (obviously it is to an extent) but this is THEIR ransom. This is part of His redemption plan for THEM. He has already worked out all the details and put things in motion. We now need to only truly "work" on keeping our hearts and eyes on Him.
Praying, praying, praying!
