From time to time there will be huge circumstances in our lives. Some of these circumstances will be good, and some will be pretty tough.
Many of you know that my family is a foster family. We knew going into the foster care system that it could get tough… A judge determined today that the little boy who has been a part of our family for close to two years will be given to the grandparents temporarily. Meaning we will be out of the picture. We will pray and support him any way that we can but right now this is one of the most toughest things our family has faced.
I am writing to get my feelings out, but also that someone else would be comforted in there time of need.
I am reminded of Paul pleading with God to remove a thorn in his flesh and getting this response:
But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me. 2 Corinthians 12:9
Granted this thorn could have been physical in nature but I feel it fits in any time of weakness.
Please continue to pray for my family in this time of transition.
