Hanging in the Balance

I can't tell you exactly what the title to this entry means, because of privacy with our agency.  I can tell you that it does have to do with timing.

 I doubt myself.  I wonder if God is really talking to me or did I come up with this adoption idea all on my own? 

So this morning I spoke to God.  God I need your word.  I need to hear from you today.  Am I doing what you want?  I need your strength.  I am doing the Bible Study, Becoming a Woman of Grace by Cynthia Heald.  I am on Chapter 8 Freedom to Serve.  For the first question we were to summarize James 1:22-27.

Here is what it says:

James 1:22-27 22 Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says. 23 Anyone who listens to the word but does not do what it says is like someone who looks at his face in a mirror 24 and, after looking at himself, goes away and immediately forgets what he looks like. 25 But whoever looks intently into the perfect law that gives freedom, and continues in it—not forgetting what they have heard, but doing it—they will be blessed in what they do.
 26 Those who consider themselves religious and yet do not keep a tight rein on their tongues deceive themselves, and their religion is worthless. 27 Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.

AMAZING!  I couldn't have planned it better myself.  I hope you take the time today to seek Him, so that you can see and experience your own miracle.

God promises that He will speak to us if we seek Him.  To God be the glory!
