How blessed are those who seek Him...

As we wade through the details of all that still lies in front of us, I find myself a bit overwhelmed at the dollars and cents that we still owe in order to bring home our little Williams'.  I know the Lord is big and for Him this is no large task, however to my small little mind and faith I have to constantly keep the Word of God close at hand and read the reminders that He marked in His letter to His people about who He is and what He does, and how He provides, and sustains.

I have been studying through Psalm 119 and it is a constant reminder to walk in His ways and pursue Him earnestly, and how doing this yields a blessed life...not easy, but blessed.  My definition of blessed has also been thwarted a bit by the Word of God.  Blessings are not always the gifts and easy way of life we hope for, but the things that prove God's faithfulness to His children, the feeling of being satisfied in Him, or the constant reminder of how undeserving I am of His grace, yet how He abundantly gives it.  I am truly 'blessed' to look back over the last 27 years of my life and see how God used every detail of my life to mold me into what I am right at this very moment, and how He is using even this very moment of my life to continue to conform me to the image of Christ.

Our lives have been challenged tremendously since we began this process of adoption and we can only imagine that it's going to get a bit more challenging as we continue moving forward, but we so desire to see God glorified in and through our family by the way we demonstrate His love through this ENTIRE adventure.

So right now, in this very moment when I am struggling to see how all of these details are going to come together to make this work; the promises He's left me in His Word assure me that He will be faithful to complete the work He's started.  So on we go, waiting to see what He will do next.
These are my physical daily reminders of God's blessings.  They are so near and dear to me and I am so  undeserving, but most grateful!
