Parenting is not for the faint of heart. Adoption is not for the faint of heart. It is work, day in and day out. The storms will come. It won't be fun. The storms will hurt.
As a parent, we need to strap on the armor of God daily, and pray for our kiddos. Many storms come our way, with our biological children, adopted children, during the pregnancy, be it as the child grows in your womb or grows in your heart thru the paper pregnancy. Satan wants our kids. He comes to lie, steal, cheat, and kill. he'd love nothing better than to get his clutches into our little ones. He's love nothing better than for the adoption process to stall, for things to go wrong, papers to be lost, etc. Anything to keep these little people from coming home to their forever families.
But take heart, GREATER IS HE WHO IS IN ME, THAN he who is in the world.
Acts 16:25-26 - But at midnight Paul and Silas were praying and singing hymns to God, and the prisoners were listening to them. Suddenly there was a great earthquake, so that the foundations of the prison were shaken; and immediately all the doors were opened and everyone's chains were loosed.
We must praise him through the storms. We must KNOW that Jesus has the victory. He is breaking those chains that the devil has tried to use to keep our children captive.
Be encouraged and CONTINUE to pray and praise Jesus through ALL of these circumstances. HE IS FAITHFUL!
HE IS FAITHFUL INDEED!
Resting in the SON,
