I wish I could jump up and click my heels together right now! Heck, I may just go in the backyard and practice.
Things have been moving along with the adoption process, but we have been really stressed about where all the money was going to come from. We’ve had a yard sale and I’m planning a gold party and we’re selling our vehicles and paying cash for two used ones at a government auction. But all of that, doesn’t come close to meeting the total expenses and we firmly believe that God does not want us to go in debt in order to bring our daughter home.
Romans 13:8 Owe nothing to any man except love…
With that in mind, we have felt our faith tested daily. How is God going to provide the 12-15 thousand dollars that this process is going to cost? Well, last night’s FPU lesson (see link on sidebar) was on insurance. We were planning to do the “Buyer Beware” lesson and thanks to our friend Ebony, we did the insurance lesson instead. All I can say, is that it was a huge awakening for me and I woke up this morning itching to straighten out our insurance coverage. In less than an hour, I tripled my own life insurance (despite having cancer in the past 5 years), got additional coverage on Kira, Chase and Seth, cut our monthly premiums in HALF, and cashed out more than $5000 that is going directly towards bringing Ana-Sophia home! I want to cry! I want to dance! I want to fall on my knees and praise God!
Philippians 4:19 And my God will meet ALL your needs according to his glorious riches in Christ Jesus.
If he has brought us this far and provided so much, who am I to doubt that He will provide the rest?
