So you all know that there has been so much happening in our lives lately.
The Lord has been working overtime on our family and on our hearts and on the path that He has laid out for us.
I have felt for a very long time that we were supposed to sell our house.
I just felt like that was how He was leading us.
We needed to be free from the burden that this house had become but it was our home and we loved our neighbors and we loved our neighborhood and and and
So, after much prayer and discussion and letting go we made the decision to downsize.
Right when we are "upsizing" our family...
We downsize our house...
but we both felt as though this was what the Lord wanted us to do, what He was asking us to do.
So, as of yesterday, our home officially went on the market
and just in time...
and this is where we need prayers y'all
Hubby lost his job today
with NO warning
as a matter of fact his boss had just signed his letter of employment for our adoption
and are you ready for this...
signed it JUST YESTERDAY!
However, we are trusting in His perfect plan and know that He has this all figured out and just because we can't yet see the big picture, we know that the Lord has our backs!
We know that this happened with His knowledge and that He sees it all and that He has this all mapped out and while it may get harder before it gets better...
WE WILL WAIT WITH JOY!
We have BTDT and the work that the Lord was able to do within our hearts the last time hubby was out of work was amazing and So worth all the struggle we had to go through, so...
We will rejoice in Him knowing that He is working for us, even when we are unable to to see it or feel it, He is working for us and ...
HE LOVES US
more than we could ever imagine.
So, I come to you not asking for sympathy but simply asking for prayers
Please pray that we will continue to be strong, that we will continue to trust and to let go and give it all to Him, allowing him to mold and shape us even more.
Pray that we will continue to wait on His perfect plan and His perfect timing and please pray
that our precious Xiaomeng is a part of that perfect plan.
