We leave for China today! Today!
I can hardly believe this time has already come. It was eleven months ago that we submitted our application to adoption and four months ago that we were match with our daughter. Talk about fast! For international adoption this has moved abnormally fast. But God’s timing is perfect and for that we are trusting Him in the midst of the speed of it all
I went for a run this morning to calm my nerves and spend some time with Jesus. I headed out on the road nervous with fear snapping at my heels. With each step forward the nerves began to fall away. And fear started to lag behind. God just kept reminded me that He has gone before me. That He is with me too.
So here is my declaration as we take this next step:
I am leaving fear behind. This is not about me. It’s about her. Our daughter. The mission is far greater than we will ever know this side of heaven. What I do know is that there is a little girl out there who needs a family. She needs a mom and a dad. And we have the heavenly privilege to be those to her. What an honor. What a blessing God has given us. So we are leaving fear before in the dust and running toward redemption! We are running toward our precious girl and we are not looking back!
