After over a year of being led into and then pursuing embryo adoption, it has happened, we are parents. We eagerly await hearing of their safe arrival in the clinic that we will soon be going to, where they will be transferred into me.
As I think about these two traveling in a truck and all that needs to line up in the next days to ensure a healthy life giving start to our family, anxiousness tries to claw at my stomach. I hear our Creator’s voice speak to me through my devotional Jesus Calling, “Entrust your loved ones to Me; release them into My protective care”.
Jesus’ spirit continues to speak to mine, even after my eyes drift off the page, “Even these little ones. And remember, I am the God of time.” I open my Bible and Exodus 33:14 also speaks comfort and assurance that I can trust Him, “My Presence will go with them wherever they go, and I will give them rest.” I feel my Creator’s peace in the midst of the not knowing how this will look. The peace that I have known for many years, in the midst of not understanding hows or whys.
I take a breath and choose to trust Him again.
What else can I do?
