Some of you may remember a post I wrote in February titled: "A Change Is Gonna Come". I was fairly vague in that post as I didn't want to open doors for Satan to interefere. Thanks to those of you who prayed and continue to pray for me. I am ready to elaborate. (Thanks for your patience Mel:).
For the past couple of years, I feel God has been calling me home. No! Not His home, my home. He has given me a deep desire to be home with my children. However, being a single mom and the only source of income kind of throws a wrench in things. Of course, in my human mind I am thinking: "This is impossible". NO WAY is He asking me to be a stay at home mom (It's important to note here that every time I say NO WAY, I make a vow to NEVER say NO WAY again). God has also given me a deep desire for teens/children. Not just the sweet, cuddly ones, but the ones who are hurting, scared, abused, neglected, and generally.....real pains in the caboose! I just wasn't sure how this all fit together.
Last month, I began a DVD course for counseling teens. At the end of the course I will receive a certificate. I believe, with all of my heart, God has prepared me for this and called me to counsel hurting kids. Now, I believe, He is also calling me to foster/adopt more children. Which, to be honest, I wasn't completely sure I ever wanted to do again. It hasn't been an easy road. Isn't it funny how it is all coming together?
I have been amazed at how excited my heart is at the prospect of this journey. I have been amazed to look back at the last few years and see that God, like the greatest of all conductors, has orchestrated each and every note of the symphony.
I am looking so forward to sharing each step of this journey with all of you.....
