I know how He patiently waited for me to trust Him alone - I am sure because He loved me so deeply yet couldn't be connected to me because of the sin that separated us. A decision He couldn't make for me he could only provide the way.
I know that He longs to hold me close, talk with me and listen to my every care. He longs to cheer me on and cry with me often. I am the only one who can chose to allow this gift to be received. He offers but I have to accept.
As we are waiting patiently for our children to come home to us I catch only a glimmer of what my Father must feel! We have paid the price financially to bring our children home-He gave so much more. We now wait and it is completely out of our hands -He had to wait for me to say Yes to Him- He provided the way but I had to say yes. I long to hold our precious children and spend hours loving them knowing that I am not promised that they will love me back- He longs to have all of me and I am the one who can hold back anything by choice.
What an amazing Father I have that not only adopted me but is allowing me to adopt. This journey is changing my life and I know I will never be the same! Thanks you God for the gift of waiting on you as I know that you so often wait on me-
