Dear brothers and sisters,when troubles come your way, consider it an opportunity for great joy. For you know that when your faith is tested, your endurance has a chance to grow. So let it grow, for when your endurance is fully developed, you will be perfect and complete, needing nothing.
Today I am thankful for God's grace. I am thankful that although I am undeserved, He extends His grace to me each day.
I'm feeling a bit like a spiritual failure today. So although I don't want to turn this into a whiny post, I want to be honest and say today I am having a bit of a down day.
I made the mistake of looking at the Precious website. I see the long list of agencies with waiting children and wonder why in a country filled with such great need for adoptive parents I don't seem to have the ability to adopt even one.
Give me the strength & grace to live each day for You -
trusting in Your perfect plan and leaning not on my own understanding.
Thank you for your unending love & grace.
