This is kind of a "fake it until you make it" statement for me. Don't get me wrong I fundamentally KNOW that this is true, and theologically I believe this as well. But when it comes to the nitty gritty of life I don't. I have a lot of questions that many people have. How can a good God allow x, y, or z to happen. And when that x, y, or z, rocks you to the core it is a lesson in trust!
BUT with that said, my prayer for the past while (long while) would be for me to trust God again, for me to believe to the very deepest part of my being that He is GOOD, yesterday, today, and forever. And He is answering. He is using the this adoption to show me He has not changed. He is renewing my hope, and showing me He is good.
What does that mean? It means are "plans" are changing. We are taking out the safety net of saving first. The saftey net of watching our pup for a bit longer "just in case something happens". We still don't know an exact timeline, but we do know soon. I know this may seem reckless to some, irresponsible, naive, we get it. We also get that when our God calls us to something we can do no less than listen.
So that is why the new little button is up on the left. A direct response to following direction. We know that our God wants to knock our socks off, and wants to draw people closer to Him, as well as recognize the call that WE ALL HAVE to help the least of these.
