Someone asked me this morning at church, "How are you?"

My honest response?


I am just going to be honest.

It was a really rough week.

Lots of ups and downs in the adoption process last week.

I did what I had to do to get by and nothing extra.

I stayed at home as much as possible, sometimes in my pjs.

I kept saying, "I am fine with whatever God has for us."

But obviously my actions were saying something else.

It all became clear for me this morning at church.

The music was enough to put me in the floor in repentance. A huge thanks to our pastor and praise team leader who work diligently to have music that speaks truth!

Then there was the message.

  Phil 4:10-13
 I rejoiced in the Lord greatly that now at length you have revived your concern for me. You were indeed concerned for me, but you had no opportunity. Not that I am speaking of being in need, for I have learned in whatever situation I am to be content. I know how to be brought low, and I know how to abound. In any and every circumstance, I have learned the secret of facing plenty and hunger, abundance and need. I can do all things through him who strengthens me.

 If you want a practical sermon on being content, then put your seat belt on and click below to listen.

I will also leave you with a great song that a reader mentioned on my blog. This is a song that we are listening to daily right now for encouragement in our adoption but it applies to all of us who are waiting on the Lord and learning to be content in HIM alone.
