We’ve prayed for the last two years that God would use our adoption to show Himself to people. It’s hard to talk about money, and it’s hard to talk about taking faithful steps without being (or sounding) prideful. Plus, many of my steps have been with a considerable amount of fear and anxiety, rather than faith!
But, we just found out that my husband’s annual bonus is almost exactly the same amount as the payment that we have due. And he’ll be receiving the bonus two days before the payment is due. We had no control over the timing of either event, or over the amount of either payment. I guess it’s possible for people to see that as a coincidence, but I certainly don’t. Especially since it isn’t the first time in this adoption process that it has happened that way.
That’s the last round of fees for our agency. From this point on, it’s time to save for travel! That’s a pretty overwhelming amount, but we’re just trying to take one step at a time. Hopefully, this time they can be faithful steps!
Trust in the Lord with all your heart,
and do not rely on your own understanding;
think about Him in all your ways,
and He will guide you on the right paths.
