Faith

Faith is so needed and something I haven't had much of lately. Since we've been waiting 8 weeks since our dossier went to Ghana, I have been losing my faith. Are we ever really going to get to go to Ghana? Will we ever have a court date? Will I ever hold my little ones tight? God has been convicting me lately of my lack of faith. I woke up this morning to an empty, sleeping house so I grabbed my Bible and hit the porch. The first verse God took me to was Matthew 21:22 And whatever you ask in prayer, you will receive, if you have faith. I have been asking for God to bring my kids home, but have not had the actual faith that He would do it. Next verse - Mark 11:24 - therefore I tell you, whatever you ask in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours. And the faith verses kept coming and coming. Jesus keeps reminding us to 'have faith'. I needed to be reminded of this and am so thankful for it. Now as I pray for our sweet children to come home, for us to have a court date, for me to be able to hug them and tell them how much I love them, I have faith. I know that my God will do this. I know we will hear news from Percy very soon. I know God will move those mountains out of our way to reach our children. Please pray with us and pass our prayer request along. We need prayer warriors fighting for our children. :)

It's so hard to keep the faith sometimes, but we must keep holding on. It took us four months from submission of dossier to court. It felt like forever. Standing with you in prayer for your precious ones!
