Answered prayers....

Gratitude for God's providence is on my mind today. How wonderful it is when we see the answer to a long awaited prayer....Yesterday I had the blessing of seeing, for the first time, the adopted daughter of some church friends of mine. We've seen,  prayed, and cried with them through hard times, then have been praying with them for months and months through all the stages of the adoption. Now she is a part of the family and it was such an encouraging blessing for me to see her sitting with her parents and sister in church, to see her making friends with the other little girls in her new church see how God answered prayers. He is good to those who wait for Him and I'm reminded that His timing is perfect and He does all things well.

"For ever blessed be the Lord, 
for graciously he heard
The voice of my petitions,
and prayers did regard.

The Lord's my strength and shield; my heart

upon him did rely;

And I am helped: hence my heart
doth joy exceedingly."
Psalm 28:6-7

"Seek ye the LORD while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near: For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts. For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater: So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it."
Isaiah 55:6,8-1
