"Do not be afraid, for I am with you;
I will bring your children from the east
and gather you from the west.
I will say to the north, 'Give them up!'
and to the south, 'Do not hold them back.'
Bring my sons from afar
and my daughters from the ends of the earth -"
Isaiah 43:5 - 6
Over the past couple days I tried to be strong, I tried to keep a steady faith, I tried to remain hopeful but as time went on, I was growing weak, I was growing less hopeful and my faith was wavering.
I do trust that God will bring this journey to completion in His own perfect way. I prayed continuously for His will and His timing and at the end I was praying for the desires of my heart. God granted me those desires.
Yesterday we received the news that Samson was going to the clinic to have his TB test checked TODAY! I started to have doubt. How can the results be tested and forwarded to our agency all in one day. What are the possibilities? At the same time I was thinking about the airline tickets we had on hold and would have to let go if we didn't hear.
But we serve a God who is in control; a God who is faithful to His Word. We may grow anxious during the wait but His timing is perfect.
Even if we hadn't heard of Samson's TB testing today and had to forfeit our tickets, everything would still turn out OK. He IS our son and he WILL be joining our family.
I'm just thrilled to think that we will meet him 3 weeks from TODAY!! Now the only wait left is waiting to travel.
