It is time to build the ark

It is obvious that I took a little hiatus from the world of blogging.  It's been a busy season and I just wasn't motivated to write on a regular basis.  However, I hope that I can use the blog to chronicle this next journey.

Sometimes God speaks to us at strange times and when we least expect it.  I'm guilty of hearing His voice and trying to figure out how He will choose to do things.  But the bottom line is, we don't think like He does.  He knows best and when we obey and trust Him He can work out more than we could ever imagine.  I find myself in that spot one more time.  I have waited and waited to begin the adoption process again, but it seemed like there were so many obstacles in my way.  But I've heard the call, and I've heard Him say "It's time"...so finally I feel I can take a leap of faith once again.

I'm writing to ask for your prayers for this journey.  I'm following my heart and going where I feel God is leading, but I do not really understand how He will orchestrate all of it.  Will you pray?  Pray for guidance and direction, pray for my heart and Yan's heart to be prepared for the next steps and pray for my child or children, wherever they are. 

I'm going to start to do some preliminary fund raising work.  Adoption is not cheap, and to be honest, I'm not in the place to afford it...but I know He will provide.  A friend reminded me that I could begin "building my ark".  Noah didn't wait until he saw the rain before he started work on the ark.  He worked while the land was dry (and he was 600 years old, praise God I'm not quite that old yet) and obeyed and trusted in God.  I will obey, I will trust...and I AM VERY EXCITED!  I cannot wait to see what this season holds.  God is always good and I'm sure He has an amazing story to write here.  I will update as I can.

Many blessings, Jenn
