Road Signs

On Sunday our Pastor gave an excellent sermon about following God's plan for our lives, even when that path or its timing may not make sense to us.  He used Luke 1:5-25, which applies to our situation almost perfectly - I felt like the whole service was directed at us.  During part of the sermon, our Pastor said that the Lord may give us signs along the way that we are on the right path and to continue on.  I am certain that what happened for us last week were road signs...

I think I've mentioned in a previous post that I had a few weeks of uncertainty after we completed our paperwork.  We had received minor miscommunication from our agency and I felt like our file was just sitting at the bottom of a pile on someone's desk.  I questioned if this was even the right thing for us to be doing and started researching possible alternatives.  I also prayed that if our adoption is in the Lord's plan for us that He watch over our case.  I needed a sign that progress is being made on our case - even if we still need to continue to wait.  Obviously I was beyond excited to receive information about what could possibly be our child, but I think I knew in the back of  my mind that these situations were not ours.  I was able to stay calm and keep a clear mind, which wouldn't have been possible without some sort of help from above.  Ultimately, I truly believe that we received the sign I was waiting for - that progress is actually being made on our case and the child that's meant for us will eventually come home.
