Guest Post: Beyond Words
Thank you to adoptive mom Melinda for sharing this encouragement! Check out her blog at the link below for more pictures.
Iâ€™m not sure about the rest of you, but I am not very patient when I am waiting on something. I like to get things accomplished and check them off my list, or cross them off, or better yet use my sharpie to draw a big black line through them. I have learned that beautiful things happen in the wait though; things that you may not expect or even see during the period of waiting. Those happenings can be, and were for us, the biggest blessings. Though we didnâ€™t see with our eyes what was happening, prayers were answered during those wait times. It is ok to wait. Even good! (Just check out the pictures of a miracle on our blog!) So throw away your sharpie and bury your list. God has a list, and his purposes and agenda will be accomplished in His perfect time. We encourage you to read our thoughts on this topic on our blog post â€œBeyond Wordsâ€ and hope that it encourages each of you who are waiting for the child God has for your family.
