I am sitting here drinking a smoothie that Doug made for me (lovingly topped with a Double Stuff Oreo to make me feel better) and wanted to write about a few things.
Last night I was reading through part of Isaiah and came across this in Isaiah 40:
"Lift your eyes and look to the Heavens:
Who created all of these?
He who brings out the starry host one by one,
and calls them each by name.
Because of his great power and mighty strength,
not one of them is missing.
Why do you say, O Jacob,
and complain, O Israel,
"My way is hidden from the Lord,
my cause is disreagarded by my God?"
Do you not know?
Have you not heard?
The LORD is the everlasting God,
The Creator of the ends of the earth.
He will not grow tired or weary,
and His understanding no one can fathom.
He gives strength to the weary,
and increases the power of the weak.
Even youths grow tired and weary,
and young men stumble and fall.
but those who hope in the Lord
will renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles;
They will run and not grow weary,
They will walk and not be faint."
Whether we travel on the 30th or a long time from now the truth still remains. God is God and He loves us. He has chosen Georgia to come into our family and He knows the perfect time for that. It does not mean that the wait will be easy but I does me that He has and will give us the strength to see this through. It will be easy to praise God on the day we get Georgia, like opening a gift but I want to praise God just as much right now.
