Inspiration & Scripture for Waiting Adoptive Families
Sometimes we need to be reminded who is in control of our life and our adoption. Copy the statement and verse below and put it on your bathroom mirror, refrigerator, and your computer.
God is in Control of My Adoption.
Fear not I am with you… Isaiah 41:10
For this reason I say to you, do not be worried about your life, as to what you will eat or what you will drink; nor for your body, as to what you will put on. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing? Look at the birds of the air, that they do not sow, nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not worth much more than they? And who of you by being worried can add a single hour to his life? And why are you worried about clothing? Observe how the lilies of the field grow; they do not toil nor do they spin, yet I say to you that not even Solomon in all his glory clothed himself like one of these. But if God so clothes the grass of the field, which is alive today and tomorrow is thrown into the furnace, will He not much more clothe you? You of little faith! Do not worry then, saying, ‘What will we eat?’ or ‘What will we drink?’ or ‘What will we wear for clothing? For the Gentiles eagerly seek all these things; for your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.
The Lord is my strength and my shield; my heart trusted in him, and I am helped: therefore my heart greatly rejoiceth; and with my song will I praise him.
If God Almighty, up above,
Creator of All, Creator of Love,
Can fill our hearts with total content;
Then we understand what’s meant.
A precious new baby makes our heart swell,
And God surely knows; He did His job well!
