It wasn't necessarily part of OUR plan
but for now, it is part of HIS plan
and that makes it PERFECT!
I can't go into detail how she came into our lives
but we are over the moon excited that she's here!
We don't know how long she will be with us
But we are praying that it will be for a LONG, LONG time!
She has stolen all our hearts!
Is it all part of His plan that we will have TWO little ones????
That our little one in China will come home to FIVE siblings???
Oh how I hope so!
But for now, we don't know all the answers.
But HE DOES.
And we trust Him!
So how do I pray?
When it's time for bed,
I give her blanket to her, she snuggles in and puts her two little fingers in her mouth.
And then I pray with her.
out loud...whispers in her ear...
"Lord, we are so very thankful for another day with her,
thank You for entrusting her to us.
We trust You.
We know You have a plan for her life.
You love her!
Lord you say in your Word, You are her Advocate.
Lord, You are her Redeemer...."
I recently read in Proverbs 23:10 & 11
Basically... Don't Mess With the Orphan! Because The Lord is their Strong Redeemer!
Go read it!
I LOVE THIS!!!!
I hold on to this Truth every day!
And today, it became even more meaningful!
As a precious friend asked me how things were going...
I shared what I pray about.
I shared about the verse.
That HE IS HER REDEEMER.
And that is what I hold on to!
With tears in both of our eyes,
she shared what the Lord prompted her to share with her daughter.
Her curious daughter asked about the word "redeemer"
and what does that mean?
She shared that clearly the Lord gave her the words to say to her,
to help her truly understand this character of God.
He is our Redeemer.
You see, YOU HAVE VALUE.
YOU HAVE WORTH.
she told her,
Because you have value, and worth, HE CAME TO REDEE
As only He could!
Yep. There were tears.
These two Mommas love the precious miracles the Lord placed in our arms. Our big ones, our little ones, they ones here on Earth and the ones He took back to be with Him.
They all have worth and value beyond what we can afford!!
They all belong to HIM!
HE IS THEIR REDEEMER!!
Thank you Lori for sharing your heart! I will never forget this!
