While i'm waiting... and a giveaway!

I've been praying a lot recently that God will give me a peace and comfort during this waiting process, that my eyes would be fixed on Him, and that I would trust Him each step of the way.

However, there are times when my humanness gets in the way... many times! Times when I feel overwhelmed or frustrated... when I want to rush this process along. And sometimes, these thoughts are running through my mind -
I really need to finish painting that room... but, will it make me more anxious if I do? 
I have no idea what stroller to buy... I should really look into that further. 
Is today THE DAY? I wonder if 'J' will call today? 
That pile of adoption books... I'm staying up reading every night and I just can't seem to get through them fast enough! 
Do we need a crib or a bed? Diapers or toddler clothes? 
I have no idea how many times a day a baby eats...
Is our baby born yet? Maybe our baby took his/her first steps today! 
I wonder if our baby is hurting? Today could be a tragic day in their lives. 
When will Guatemala EVER open up? I wonder how the girls are doing? I've called them 'our girls' for so long... oh, how I long for that day. 
I wonder how many weeks 'pregnant' I am? I wonder if my family/friends would react differently if I were pregnant? 
Is my child, the child that God chose for our family getting enough to eat? Are they sleeping in a warm bed tonight? 

I love how just when I start to get overwhelmed with all the questions running through my mind, that Jesus reminds me to trust in Him and worship in the waiting! Ps. 62:8

I'm waiting
I'm waiting on You, Lord
And I am peaceful
I'm waiting on You, Lord
Though it's not easy
But faithfully, I will wait
Yes, I will wait
I will serve You while I'm waiting
I will worship while I'm waiting
I will worship while I'm waiting on You, Lord - John Waller

  1. Christi,

    So "of God" that you wrote about this today because God also laid this exact song on my heart yesterday. Reminding me that while I'm waiting (with so many unanswered questions) I can serve Him and trust in Him.

    Knowing that He holds all things together...even the little ones that He is preparing for us. Rest in knowing that He is also with YOU as you "wait".


  2. Thanks Christie! Needed that! :)
