What are we waiting for?
I posted a link to one of my favorite Christian artist, Britt Nicole. I feel like God's not done with us through adoption. I've struggled thinking that 3 is it, however, I think He has a bigger plan. I'm not sure yet, or am I(?), but I know He will show me the way. There's so much more we can do! And, for some reason, the number 4 will just not get out of my head. This morning in church we recited our monthly Bible verse, "for it is God who works in you to will and to act according to His good purpose." I sometimes get sidetracked and think about the "stuff". You know, a "new" vehicle, cause we're gonna need one and sooon. That is, Mike is gonna need one. He's driving my old Toyota, Camry with 200,000 miles on it. In 2004, he took the Camry, and I got the new van. So now the Camry is soon to be retired, and Mike's getting himself a 2004 Sienna. And he's quite pleased I may add. So instead of getting a brand new vehicle this time, I think we're going for a nice used, 2007, vehicle. Yep, another van. We have to have a van or utility for everyone to fit. It's not about the "stuff" anymore. It's about the necessity and God providing only what we need. I love Britt's song, A:"Walk On the Water"A: because it talks about . . . what are we waiting for, what do we have to lose, with God we can walk on the water. This morning Jason spoke about sacrifices, "stop focusing on ourselves, but on those God loves." A lot of times, let me rephrase that, most of the time, we get sidetracked and lose the focus God has for us. Don't you just know that God just wants us to pay attention? There are soooooo many orphans and God loves 'em all. I had heard or read not too long ago that if every Christian family adopted an orphan, that there would be no more orphans. Wouldn't that be amazing? Anyway, I love going to church to hear what God has to tell me. This morning was awesome. I pray that God uses me to my fullest ability. He knows the plan. I just have to sit patiently to see it unfold.
