I will spare you the yuck details while offering a brief explanation for my absence…
Last week I noticed my finger was sore. Later I noticed it was swollen. After texting a grotesque picture of it to a friend (thank you Catherine), I headed to the Dr. And now, 4 days into healing and antibiotics, I free painfree enough to type. Thank the Lord!
This has been on my heart…
Nothing in our life seems super overwhelming now. Just lots of waiting. Just lots of trusting. Yesterday I listened to a podcast by Tullian Tchividjian. He said the phrase “A perpetual state of brokenness,” and it stuck with me.
That’s what I feel like I’m in…”a perpetual state of brokenness.” Maybe I’ve been there since 2007. Maybe I’ve been there since we started this adoption in 2012. I’m not sure. But I know that’s where I am. And I’m confident God has a purpose in it.
One last answer to the question I posted last week, “Do I believe He cares?” Isaiah 54:10 sums it up-
“Though the mountains be shaken and the hills be removed, yet my unfailing love for you will not be shaken nor my covenant of peace be removed, says the Lord, who has compassion on you.”
