The story of our life has been guided by the Word of the Lord. Our first full time job in ministry came about because the Lord spoke to us clearly through His word in a time of uncertainty out of Isaiah 55:8 which says, “For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways declares the Lord.” That scripture spoke so loud and clear to us that day that even though we may not see the entire picture, just trust that when He speaks we start stepping.
It was a couple of years later that the Word of the Lord would be spoken over us of a double portion blessing coming into our lives. As a young married couple we are thinking praise God, it’s about to rain down money, money, money over our college debt!! That was not the case. Almost a month to the date of that word we found ourselves sitting in a Dr’s office looking at an ultrasound on a tv screen hearing the Doctor say, “Well there’s 2 in there!” So began the journey of twins, and what a journey it was. The journey was long and grinding, but when God speaks we stand on that promise and know that no weapon can prosper over His promise!
So the last 2 years has been another journey of hearing God speak to us so clearly again. This time causing a dream from the beginning of our marriage to well up again in each of us. This is our adoption story of simply taking the steps God speaks, and hearing and seeing the Joyous Song of God’s Promise!
