Stand Amazed...

When Solomon found us, God impressed very deeply in our hearts that He would provide ALL the funds needed for his adoption. He also very clearly told us that He would also provide for his medical needs but that we needed to take one day at a time and trust Him. 

We all watched in absolute amazement as He miraculously provided (through many of you) the funds needed to bring our boy home.  I honestly still can't find adequate words to describe that journey! I have resolved that there truly aren't words to describe all that the Lord did in me...did in my family...to bring my boy home.

So, here we are...Cincinnati itinerary in hand...plane tickets needing to be bought...thousands of dollars needed for our sweet son to see the world's best & only pediatric colorectal team in the world....Solomon & I are 4 weeks away from traveling to Cincinnati and I worry wonder okay...worry...there, I said it...worry about how will we buy the plane tickets....how will we pay the medical bills.  I tell ya...God must shake His head at me & think "Yea of little faith...look at all I have just done & you still worry???"  Yes, we have insurance but it's a PPO which means we have a $1000 deductible...which means they will only cover part of the expenses...how much will they actually need in 4 weeks...I don't know...how will we buy the plane tickets we need just to get there...I don't know...can hear it...hear God gently, lovingly but firmly telling me "It's not for you to know but I know and that all you need to know!!"

THEN just as my Lord does...TODAY...He provided our plane tickets...both mine and Solomon's...paid...reserved...DONE!!! Friends from church heard of our need and gave us their frequent flyer miles...I stand amazed!!

So what now...we still need the money to pay the hospital bills but once again, God has given me His perfect peace He will provide for our baby boy because He is our provider...He is our Jehovah-Jireh!  He alone!!!

It is encouraging to hear how the Lord provides for His followers!! You are so wise to look to Him as the provider for all your needs!!

Oh what a comfort knowing the Lord is in control! It is so hard not to worry at different times but He is always faithful to do what is right and best!

What an amazing God! What great news! He does provide in amazing ways! We are witnessing that first-hand in our adoption. Some days I will start to worry about the $10,000 we still need to come up with and then God reminds me "Hey, I've already provided $17,000. Don't doubt me."
Praying for you and that the rest of the money will be there just when you need it!
