"Great is Thy Faithfulness, O God our Father. There is no shadow of turning with thee. Thou changes not, thy compassions they fail not. As thou has been, thou forever will be.” As we sang those words at the end of our worship service this morning, God’s faithfulness and compassion were yet again refreshing truths to me.
I thought of our senior pastor announcing this morning (May 17th) his coming transition in September 2016 to part-time Pastor Emeritus. He has been such a source of encouragement and wisdom for me.
I thought of the elders of our church nominating me to be the next lead pastor of our church. We have been praying about it for the last year and a half. I’m humbled to be in this position.
I thought of Laura’s incredible encouragement and support throughout the last year and a half of discussions and meetings. I’m deeply amazed by her love.I thought of our first home interview yesterday with our social worker for adoption. I’m encouraged by every step forward in the process.
To be completely honest, there are many unknown things about the future that tug at my heart. How will we be able to afford all the fees for the adoption? Are we emotionally ready for something like this? How will Laura and I handle the stress from these changes? Will we continue to trust the Lord and lean on Him?
