Often times I hear people comment to me, "I've always wanted to adopt BUT...."
BUT it costs $25,000.00.
BUT we would need a bigger house.
BUT my husband would never go for it.
BUT we can barely afford to take the three we have to Disney World. (don't get me going)
I don't believe that adoption is a calling for everyone....but I do believe it's a calling for MANY more than actually adopt. Somewhere between the Lord's calling and the world's voice, families say no. I read this quote this morning about obedience. Because, ultimately, we are called to be obedient to what the Lord is asking of us.
If Jesus ever commanded us to do something that He was unable to equip us to accomplish, He would be a liar. And if we make our own inability a stumbling block or an excuse not to be obedient, it means that we are telling God that there is something which He has not yet taken into account. Every element of our own self-reliance must be put to death by the power of God. The moment we recognize our complete weakness and our dependence upon Him will be the very moment that the Spirit of God will exhibit His power. ~ Oswald Chambers
God is not a liar. I believe that with every fiber of my being. He has taken into account that we do not have the money for this adoption. He has taken into account that our home is filling up fast and last time I checked, there wasn't a construction man adding on a bedroom. He has taken into account all the days that I feel totally overwhelmed with the 4 I already have.
And He is sufficient. He will exhibit His power.
And I cannot WAIT :)
