I have been making quilts and dresses to help raise
money for the adoption and one of the MANY times I have been to the
fabric store getting things cut the lady and I were chatting (I had a
LOT of fabric this day) I was telling her what I was making and
why. She mentioned that she had thought about adoption... BUT "you have
to be rich and have things all together to adopt." OH MY GOODNESS!! I
wanted to give her an itemized statement about how completely and
utterly untrue that is.
This is what I know:
We do NOT have a fat bank account. BUT WE ARE RICH, in the sense that we have so much more than we need.
do NOT have EVERYTHING all together. BUT WE ARE LEARNING....each day I
am humbled as God reminds me that I am not in control (and thank goodness for that!). I simply need to work hard and
diligently and trust Him to "put it all together".
I need forgiveness daily, for being lazy, for being self-centered, for not having self-control, for.....a million things.
14 We know that the law is spiritual; but I am unspiritual, sold as a slave to sin. 15 I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do. 16 And if I do what I do not want to do, I agree that the law is good. 17 As it is, it is no longer I myself who do it, but it is sin living in me. 18 For I know that good itself does not dwell in me, that is, in my sinful nature.[c] For I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out. 19 For I do not do the good I want to do, but the evil I do not want to do—this I keep on doing. 20 Now if I do what I do not want to do, it is no longer I who do it, but it is sin living in me that does it.
21 So I find this law at work: Although I want to do good, evil is right there with me. 22 For in my inner being I delight in God’s law; 23 but I see another law at work in me, waging war against the law of my mind and making me a prisoner of the law of sin at work within me. 24 What a wretched man I am! Who will rescue me from this body that is subject to death? 25 Thanks be to God, who delivers me through Jesus Christ our Lord!
true and accurate the Word of God is! I cannot carry out any good thing
on my own, but it is God who delivers me through Jesus Christ MY Lord!!
