Okay...so I was surfing the web this morning before the munchkins woke up and through a series of divine clicks of the mouse I ended up at the blog of one my favorite speakers. The lovely Ms. Lysa TerKeurst of Proverbs 31 ministries. I thought..."Cool...I will see what is going on in her world today and what wonderful stuff I can glean from her" Lysa always has some wonderful little pearls of wisdom that God has shown her, so I excitedly clicked away. I was reading in her biography about her and it mentioned her five kids. FIVE KIDS???? WHEN DID THIS HAPPEN??? SHE HAS THREE KIDS...OH MY>>>SHE HAS HAS TWINS?????
I began to dig more and the answer was soon staring me in the face. Nope...Lysa hasn't had twins, but God has indeed blessed her family with two more children. God's miracle of adoption has decended upon the TerKeurst family in a BIG way!!!
Okay...so as I began to watch the video and see the story unfold, I could barely see the computer screen for the steady stream of tears that were rolling down my face. It is an amazing story that I want to share with you all. Some of you may already have heard her story, but as most of you know, we have been living in a large HOLE for the last 18 or so months...so I missed it!!
It just amazes me to no end how God works in his children's lives when we are open to allowing him to do so. How many times I have heard it said that "God is a gentleman and will never force himself upon us". It is so true!! I can't imagine having missed the miracle of adoption in our lives and I imagine that Lysa and her husband feel the same way! God's way is not always the easy path, but the end result is so incredible!!!
To everyone reading this blog entry today. Please just stop and ask God to show you how he wants to use you today!! It may be something small or it may be "life interupted" like Lysa says, but it will ALWAYS bring amazing Glory to God and it will always bring amazing blessings to your life in the end!!
So now...click here and watch the videos for yourself. This link goes directly to the post and it is titled "The Oprah Show" WARNING...have tissues handy!!
