We need you all to pray.
The easy way to explain the current situation is that there is a computer glitch that is holding up our paperwork and we are now delayed by more than a month. Again.
Remember back in June when our agency told me at the last minute that they were not allowed to send our paperwork to China because they were suspended and we had to scramble to find a quick $5,000 and rush to change agencies?
Let's just say this "roadblock" thing is getting old.
I know God has a plan. I do know this. I just don't know what it is and that is the part I am struggling with.
I suspect that part of His plan through this is to teach me to quit trying to control things and to relax and let Him handle it. I am learning. I promise.
Maybe something is going on with Lily that makes it better for her family to come in January instead of November, or maybe something will happen here that will require us to be here. Maybe the money just won't come fast enough for us to go.
I don't know the reason, but I do trust that there IS a reason. There always is a reason and every time we experience a roadblock or a delay, we realize later that the timing was perfectly planned by God. I can't tell you how many times I have thanked God for His perfect timing even through the delays.
Maybe we'll never look back at this particular challenge and clearly see why it had to be this way, but I do trust that there is a reason for this for someone, somewhere.
In any case, please pray. If not for paperwork, for my patience.
