Being confident of this very thing, that He who has begun a good work in you will complete it until the day of Jesus Christ. Philippians 1:6
Know that the Lord, He is God; it is He who has made us, and not we ourselves; we are His people and the sheep of His pasture. Psalm 100:3
He is a shield to those who put their trust in Him. Proverbs 30:5
We need to hear that God is still in control. We need to hear that it's not over until he says so. We need to hear that life's mishaps and tragedies are not a reason to bail out. They are simply a reason to sit tight.
Corrie ten Boom used to say, "When the train goes through a tunnel and the world gets dark, do you jump out? Of course not. You sit still and trust the engineer to get you through."
Next time you're disappointed, don't panic. Don't jump out. Don't give up. Just be patient and let God remind you he's still in control.
It ain't over till it's over.
Even though it looks very much like we will be coming home without Trek in our arms, we are still praying believing that God will move this mountain. If he chooses not to right now, it must mean He has an even greater plan. That does not mean this is easy...let me assure you it's NOT. I don't want to leave my baby here. I want him home with us. But God is good and we choose to have faith that He will work this all out in his perfect time. His perfect time and ours may not be the same.
It's 12:30 noon in Nepal right now. Trek has been napping and still is. Once he wakes up we are heading over to the girls house for another visit. He did so good yesterday. Every day that we are there he opens up a little more to them. So guess what???? There is another Christian couple over here in the same boat we are and they have adopted a beautiful little girl only about 5 months older than Trek and she will also be staying with M & F!! So the little guy will have someone is own age to play with :)
I think Mike is a little concerned about Trek hanging with 30 girls all the time, but M & F assured us that he would be hanging out with the guys and the boys home :)
Here are some pictures from yesterday....
