Waiting . . .

As we wait for paperwork to be processed so we can bring Grace home, we have peace knowing that God is taking care of her and will bring us together in His perfect timing.  Time and time again throughout this process, He has demonstrated His ever constant presence and has provided for us at every turn on this journey. 

For all of you who are waiting on the Lord's perfect timing, here are some verses we have found comfort and encouragement in:

"For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all."  2 Cor. 4:17

"I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace.  In this world you will have trouble. But take heart!  I have overcome the world." John 16:33

"God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble."  Ps. 46:1

"Casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you."  I Peter 5:7

"And now, Lord, for what do I wait? My hope is in You."  Psalm 39:7

"Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by your name; You are Mine. When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; And through the rivers, they shall not overflow you. When you walk through the fire, you shall not be burned, Nor shall the flame scorch you." Is. 43:1b-2

"The fruit of righteousness will be peace; the effect of righteousness will be quietness and confidence forever."  Is. 32:17

"They that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; they shall walk, and not faint."  Isaiah 40:31

"Not only so, but we also glory in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope. And hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit, who has been given to us."  Romans 5:3-5

"Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything. If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you."  James 1:2-5

Blessing to all our wonderful friends and family!  We love you and are so thankful for you!
