I imagine many of you have heard about Hope Spoken, a conference that is occurring in Dallas this weekend.
I'd originally planned to attend. I purchased one of the first 50 tickets sold. And then, after what felt like some prompting from the Lord and the conviction of the "right thing to do," I sold it. I knew the money could be better saved for our adoption, but honestly, I thought we'd be traveling to pick up Titus by this point.
And you know what sucks? Lots of backward steps have been taken since then.
Lots of turmoil in Titus' home country, lots of life changes here. And I know that's vague, but that's all of the information I can give you right now. And while all change isn't bad, it's still hard when things don't go the way you planned isn't it?
I've been super honored and blessed to have recently taken on helping run the Thrive Moms' Instagram account and this past week I shared this verse on the account -- "'For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways,' declares the Lord." - Isaiah 55:8
And that's a promise and a hope I'm clinging to. The hope that what he has planned is far greater than what I would've imagined or done.
