The past weekend, I'd been all too consumed with anxiety about what the future holds for our adoption and for the family for which we desire, as our plans are beginning to shift and sway a bit. Yesterday a desperate plea for wisdom, fresh air and a short walk did me good, unbelievably good. On that walk, wisdom became my companion and it gave me the clarity that I sought and restored my hope once again. It was truly God's gift.
"Consider it pure joy, my brothers, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith develops perseverance. Perseverance must finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything. If any of you lacks wisdom, he should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to him." James 1:2-5
