The Start of Something Sweet

I should ask for prayer on my blog more often… it really seems as if God always works right after I ask for prayer on here. Do some sweet people really stop and pray for me? I am overwhelmed by the realization that yes, the body of Christ prays for each other, and God hears.

I asked for your prayers on Monday night. Then, we went to eat dinner with five families from our church who have adopted or are in process. We told our personal stories and marveled at God’s goodness. We brainstormed about how we can become a resource and encouragement to others considering orphan care in our church. We expressed our desire for God’s sweet doctrine of adoption – the gospel – to be preached in our congregation. And, I hope, we have become part of a movement. Perhaps a small part, but nonetheless, it felt like the Holy Spirit at work. I am in awe.

Thank you for your prayers, and thank God for His intimate involvement in our lives!
