We have been on the waitlist to adopt for 4 months today!
The wait is a lot for a momma to bear on her shoulders. It can drain a momma of Life. If we calculate our level of Life based on how many sweet babies have been matched with their forever families lately, how long the days seems to be while we wait expectantly, and how many years we fear we may have to wait to hold our dear lovelies in our waiting arms, our levels can deplete us of all things good.
But if we measure our level of Life based on the everlasting, abundant Life God pours out freely to us, our levels can be replenished!
Joy unspeakable comes from God alone. Joy unspeakable is God reigning in our lives.
Jesus Calling has taught me today that joy unspeakable is a gift from God for living in His Presence. It is not a gift we can give ourselves. Only our Father can clothe us with this gift.
How do you have unspeakable joy in all of this waiting? Sit at His feet, hold His hands, look into His loving eyes, and talk to Him. Share with Him. Let Him bear the weight of the wait for you.
Today, we are rejoicing with unspeakable joy that we are 4 months closer to seeing the face of our baby girl!
