God is moving!

And I am not surprised!! As I write this I am totally in awe of God, and how He moves. His word says in Matthew 7:11 "If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children, how much more shall your Father which is in heaven give good things to them that ask him? "

Philippians 4:19 says "But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus."

When we started this journey the scariest thing for us was the finances. BUT, we have an unspeakable peace. Not because of ourselves, if it was left to us, in our own human ability to "make" this happen, we would fail, miserably. We have a peace because we trust God. His word says that He will supply all of our needs, and I believe Him. We have had many people encourage us and say "if God has called y'all to do this, then do it, HE WILL PROVIDE!"

With that said, in the middle of saving and planning for buying our home, last week I felt like it was time to trust God and open our savings account for the adoption. So I went and opened it up with $25 cash to deposit into it. That was 4 days ago and as of tonight we have over $100 in there. All coming from selling items that were donated to us (from Tim's dad) on Ebay. Oh and, we have 39 more of those exact items to sale. :) I'm overwhelmed with gratefulness that God is leading us in this journey and that He will provide every step of the way. You see, His dad who is moving several states away was cleaning his house and going to give a TON of stuff to Hannah Home ect. until he found out that were going to have a yard sale soon. So He loaded Tim up with stuff. We didn't think any of it would really sell for much, but GOD can do anything. We were amazed that His dad had tried to sale the very same thing in a yard sale for $10 and couldn't and yet we sold 3 today for $40 each! And like I said, we have about 40+ more!!! I don't know why, but we limit God, and then all of a sudden when you least expect it, BAM... He shows off. What an awesome God we serve!

I'm sure you are wondering why I am making a big deal out of this, It's not like I have $1000 or $10,000 in savings. It is going to cost us close to $30,000.00 for this adoption. And technically we were not starting our saving (in our plans!) for the adoption until after our new house purchase. But God's timing is different! And when He says it's time, then it's time. Thank God for His provisions, now, and for the entire journey!! This is exciting!!

Luke 12:7
But even the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear not therefore: ye are of more value than many sparrows.
