Waiting Again

I've been going through a Bible study with some friends, and the focus is on knowing God's Will. We have just been talking about how the Holy Spirit will speak to us, and then confirm the direction through various ways. My prayer has been that I would really know the Lord intimately and hear clearly from the Holy Spirit.

Last week I sensed the Lord asking me to wait a little longer on the whole adoption plan. I didn't sense it was a long-term thing...maybe just a few months. Then, a couple of days ago, a Sanyu adoptive mom posted a letter from Barbara, the Director of Sanyu, on her blog. Here is an excerpt:

Due to an increase in adoptions by Ugandan couples and the lack of children in our home that is available for adoption; we are unable to accept any applications from international families at this time. This may change in the future so please do not hesitate to contact us again in a few months to see if the need for adoptive homes overseas is yet again a reality for some of the children in our care.

How is that for confirmation? I am not worried. God is just teaching me patience and reminding me that I need to have a willingness to be redirected by Him. He is good!!


  1. Very good! I love confirmations, they just further help us to "know our Shepard's voice"!

    So the word to wait and the note that you must wait could mean a little one will there for you when you get the "go do it" from God!! He's preparing:)

  2. Sasa,

    I read your commnet on Linny's blog....and just wanted to say I understand the challenge. I am a single mom of 3, adopting my 4th from Ethiopia.

    God has a plan. I pray you find the answers you seek.

  3. Can totally relate to your post! It is all in HIS plan!
