Been a while since I’ve updated, but life continues to move along at a rapid pace. We’ve had some awesome days and some hard days but God remains the same through each of them; He truly is our constant.
Here’s a little random catch up…..
- We have 16 weeks left in our school year and everybody’s working hard.
- We have two teenage girls gearing up for spring/summer jobs, so my job as taxi driver will ramp up soon. ;) Those same girls are also working to get their permits and then driver’s licenses. Yikes! Where has time gone?
- We’re looking forward to seeing some God-friends (friends God introduced us to) in the coming weeks. How fun it will be to catch up and hear what’s going on in their lives.
- I’ve been thinking a lot lately about the power of testimony. It’s been good and healing to think back over our time in Ukraine–and really through the whole adoption process in general (which continues to this day)–to remind myself…to TESTIFY to myself of God’s tenderness and provision in my life. Revelation 12:11 tells me that I overcome by the blood of the Lamb and the word of my testimony. If my testimony is used in the same sentence alongside the precious blood of Jesus, I need to be testifying! So, right now, I’m testifying to the power and strength of my heavenly Father. I’m testifying to the tenderness and compassion He has for EACH one of His children. If you’re struggling through something, be encouraged. Your Father in heaven is with you. He loves you. He desires to cover you with His love and mercy. Sometimes we can’t see it when we’re in the midst of the “thing”. That’s why it’s so important to look back; to remember; to testify. It builds our faith. It helps us to trust Him in the middle of that hard stuff. There’s power in testimony!
