We are ADOPTING!

Over the past year and a half, the Lord has done incredible things in our lives personally and in our marriage.  Jesus has wrecked me completely and it's been the most beautiful mess.  We decided to make a little video of our story and where the Lord has brought us.  I promise... it is totally worth watching... ;)

It's true!  It's true! It's true!

We are OVER THE MOON THRILLED to be able to share this news with you!  I feel like our video really explains what the Lord has been up to in our lives so if you haven't watched it yet, please watch it! Since the fall, the Lord has really been impressing the idea of adoption onto our hearts.  We are overwhelmed that we get the opportunity to experience the gospel in a whole new way as we enter into the adoption process.  I've been brought to tears several times over the past few weeks and I think about the lengths God went to adopt me.  He pursued me.  He sacrificed for me.  He loved me before I ever knew I was His.  I can't help but cry as I think about how the process to bringing this child home will mirror that.  I love that God gives us such a visual picture of His love and pursuit of us.  I know that this process will impact our hearts for eternity. 

I don't want to write too much today about the details because I want the goodness and faithfulness of the Lord to be my focus, our focus.  I hope that as you see this story unfold, you'll be brought to your knees in humble adoration to the sovereignty and faithfulness of God.  We desire for the name of Jesus to be known above all things. 

"For you have not received a spirit of slavery leading to fear again, but you have received a spirit of adoption as sons by which we cry out, 'Abba!  Father!'" Romans 8:15

Father we praise you for OUR adoption.  Thank you for making us sons of God.  

 

I would love for you to come back tomorrow for some more detailed information and a few ways that you can support us and encourage us!
