Songs speak to my heart....
during Darren's adoption and surgery 10,000 Reasons by Matt Redman spoke to me.
This adoption two songs have spoken to me:
Live Like That by Sidewalk Prophets
(As I was praying over Bryan Jin Hua and whether we should move forward with his adoption this song came on the radio!)
Lord, I Need You by Matt Maher
(Whenever I hear this song on the radio my heart/mind immediately thinks of Bryan's adoption)
For King and Country is performing a concert at our church tomorrow. At the services this weekend they are leading worship.
AND they sang "my" song - Lord, I Need You!!!!
We are SUPER excited about having Bryan Jin Hua join our family in TWO WEEKS....but also worried, nervous, scared - so many, many emotions! I don't feel STRONG enough or COMPETENT enough to be a parent....to a child whose medical needs are so unknown, who can't remember life before the orphanage, who is about to have a HUGE HUGE life transition.....can we do it?! can I do it?!
No.......LORD I NEED YOU!!!
I felt like God was speaking DIRECTLY to me - as I stood by my seat feeling so unprepared, so unable to go on this journey alone, so incompetent.....
BUT God spoke to me to remind me that I AM NOT ALONE!!!
He will be with me EVERY STEP of the WAY!!
PRAISING God for that promise,
PRAISING God that I can claim that promise,
PRAISING God for that reminder!!
