Adopting… In His Timing
by Mardie Caldwell

Have you ever looked at another person and thought, "Has she got it made! God has really blessed her!"

She has what you want—a child to call her own, maybe great parents, a strong marriage, a spouse who loves Jesus. Maybe you envy her successful professional life, the ease of getting pregnant or adopting, or material blessings that have not kept them from loving Jesus.

Sometimes we look at the blessings from God in another person's life with a longing to experience the same goodness. We find ourselves fighting feelings of envy or possibly even disappointment with God because we didn't get what we consider necessary for our happiness… a child, either biological or through adoption.

Until you make Christ the center of your life, dear friend, you'll never be satisfied or fulfilled. Remember Jesus' words to Peter when the fisherman wanted to know His plans for another disciple? Jesus saith unto him, If I will that he tarry till I come, what is that to thee? follow thou me. (John 21:22)

Do not worry or concern yourself with what God has done in His timing in someone else’s life. You will only miss out on the blessing God has for you … in His timing he will bless you too. In the perfect way that is best for you with the child he has for just you.

Prayer
I confess, dear God, that I have looked upon people around me with envy, wishing to have their blessings for my own. But You have other plans for me, plans that may test my faith but that will ultimately make me perfect and complete and in your timing, which is perfect. I rest in the knowledge of Your sovereignty. In Jesus name ... Amen
