Things have been quiet on the blog for the last couple of weeks. Summer adventures and visitors have been keeping us busy. But, if i’m being totally honest, being “busy” is just a convenient excuse. The truth is I’ve been in a bit of a process spiritually and emotionally the last couple of weeks, and as a result, I’ve been avoiding the blog.
After much wrestling with the Lord, I’ve decided it’s time to break my silence and share a bit about what’s been going on in my heart and what I am learning. In short: Even when things are hard, HE is faithful. An obvious truth, I know. But sometimes, even though I “know” things about God, I struggle to feel and completely trust those things and to live in the freedom and assurance they bring to my life.
Adoption is a HUGE commitment. The entire process is filled with decision after decision after decision. You face more questions and uncertainties than you could ever imagine. It’s an unending journey of mental and emotional processing. I was told it would be this way. I knew it would be this way. Even so, nothing could have prepared me for the places this journey would take my heart.
This year we are blessed to celebrate one of the most beautiful days of the year, Easter, with family in San Diego.
Today is the day we celebrate our Saviour Jesus Christ is alive. He died for our sins, but death could not hold Him. He is risen! Hallelujah!
I pray you all know and understand the beauty, power and freedom we have because of this day. It’s such an underserved gift that I find myself taking for granted too often. Praise God for His forgiveness! So thankful for His saving grace.
