We may not win the Battle, but We WILL win the WAR!!

So i know i havent written in a while... things have been really hard to say the least! Linny from a Place called Simplicity wrote about how the enemy of our souls absolutely hates when people come together and adopt, ransom these precious lives for our savior.. and how he goes on the offensive against us....

Well we have seen this is a big way in the last year of our lives... over the last 1months we have had an adoption disruption, sickness, major home damage that took months to get fixed and the day it was fixed my hubby lost his job... which lead to major financial problems, more sickness, loss of our entire "adoption fund", we've lost friends, have had to deal with some family issues, for the first time ever my hubby is having a hard time keeping up with his school work because of being so down about everything.... and lastly we are going through a hard time in our relationship... the stress of everything is just too much sometimes... we are definitely in survival mode at the moment and have no idea how long we will be here... and to that, our homestudy renewal is coming up in november and we cant renew unless hubby has a new job making the same or more than before.... if this doesnt happen our homestudy will lapse and we will have to start all over again after he finds work :(

We know that the Creator of the universe is on our side!!!! and WE will prevail!!!! Plain and simple we need prayers!!! LOTS AND LOTS OF THEM!!! lol

Blessings,

  3. praying and fasting for you today...Father God we ask that you come close to this couple. their hearts are weary, but you, oh God, are strong and you promise victory to those who take up their cross to follow you. lighten their cross today Lord and carry them on eagle's wings. unite them in their marriage and protect the little one they are longing to bring home.

  10. I dropped over from Linny's blog to read your post. It sounds like you guys are really getting ambushed! I'm praying that God would not allow Satan to rob you of your joy and that He would strengthen you through this rough journey.

  12. Continuing to pray with you for the financial needs for the adoption, for your husband to be blessed with gainful employment, for both of your hearts to not fail, and for joy and peace to be yours. Do not give up! God's glory will be evident in this situation. Faint not for God is with you, He is sustaining you even in the midst of trials. Oh dear Heavenly Father be close to Liz and her husband right now. Replace the uncertainties and strains with Your loving comfort and peace. He is with you, Liz, and He will provide! God bless you!
