Isaiah 43:5

Do not be afraid, for I am with you; I will bring your children from the east and gather you from the west. Isaiah 43:5

This adoption process has been such a great "stretching time" in my walk with my Heavenly Father.  It has awakened me to thinking and praying about so many things (adoption related and otherwise).  But one particular thing that has stood out is "FAITH". ( And to those of you who know my family, no I'm not referring to my son's "special someone!", although I do think she's pretty special too)
For a few years now, I've been praying specifically that God will "increase my faith and give me wisdom".  And He continues to do just that.  However, the more my faith grows, the more I realize how very small it still is!  Oh I have faith in this area and that area of this adoption or in my life in general but what I'm also realizing is I don't have faith in ALL areas of my life -- faith in God's sovereignty!   
Thankfully, our very patient Father has also been increasing my awareness in these areas that I'm lacking faith. I'm realizing, I need to step back and get out of the way of myself and put my trust in the one who knows what's best for me and my family!

Psalm103:19 - The Lord has established His throne in the heavens,
And His sovereignty rules over all.  (NASB)

Matthew 17:20(b) - Truly I tell you, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.”

II Corinthians 5:7 -  For we live by faith, not by sight.

I Corinthians 2:5 - so that your faith might not rest on human wisdom, but on God’s power.

James 1:3 -  because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance.
