Are you courageous enough? Do you have big enough faith? It takes a huge leap to hand God the keys to your life and let Him take control. It's an issue that I've been dealing with in many aspects of my life, including this adoption.
We talk about faith all the time...but, have you ever stepped back and just let that faith work?
Personally, I'm struggling with that right now. There is always this stubborn part of me that seems to forget we work in God's time...not mine.
I look at this adoption and see the work it's going to take. We are a long way from our goal of $5,500. Our Dossier is ready for submission. And we can't submit till the money is there. We have 2 weeks left until our fundraiser is over. And then what? I've stood in awe as I've watched God work in other families to bring them down to the very last penny. And then, I turn and look at our own huge mountain and wonder how it's going to move.
My faith is not as great as I sometimes believe.
So, what would happen if I stood back and let God write this story? Truly, if I have enough faith, I would. And yet, I'm afraid that if I do, it won't happen.
"Immediately, Jesus held out His hand and caught him. "You of little faith" he said "Why did you doubt?" Matthew 14:31
Having little faith holds us back from allowing ourselves to marvel at the full works of God. If we were not restrained by little faith, how many of us would move forward to adoption? I know that the biggest factor for most people is money...what if we all stepped out in faith?
Have you ever noticed...doubt and failure go hand and hand?
Tonight, I gave it to God..."Lord, write my story..."
