Is it possible?

Is it realistic to expect / ask God to help us raise / find $16,000 to bring our babies home from Eastern Europe?

We can borrow the money, but we pray not to have to do this, as we would rather have that money to spend on their health right away and the other needs of our children.

I heard that Rick Warren started his church on a credit card. I know missionaries rely on donations from their congregations. Is it right for me to feel a peace that God WILL provide this money for the girls "ransom"? Sometimes I feel like they are a gift for me, and I wonder if it is right to pray for God to provide the means to bring them home. Does that make sense to anyone? It isn't just about the girls... they need a mommy... but I may need them just as much.

  1. Thank you so much for commenting on my blog...it spoke to me more than you know...I just wish I had all the answers :-)...but am thankful that my heavenly Father does....I like the question you just posted on your blog..."Is Is Possible?" I wish I had an answer but we are having the same dilmena...we don't have the funds and there seems to be no way it will happen, so for that reason, the doors are closed...but like you said in my comment...when God has given me this gift to be a mom, and the feeling for more children is so strong, how can it be over just because money is not there???? I don't know the answer. But I will be praying for you and I look forward to reading your blog and getting to know you more.

  2. Oh my gosh! I want you to know that, Yes! You can freely & realistically count on the Lord to provide the funds needed!! We started our adoptions with NOTHING..we prayed and sought God's will...& yes, thought, "but how, Lord?" His answers were found in His Word.."Is anything to hard for me?" (Isaiah ?) can't think clearly just now :) But I was also drawn to Joshua..who God called to have faith in Him that He would provide the way to fight the battles before him (Joshua) to overtake the land God promised. I can't tell you how many times I would have doubted if I were told to walk around a city & the battle would be ours..I love the quote.."God doesn't call the equipt, He equipts the called!" Pray, sister, pray!! He will provide for your girls to come home! Now, smile & relish in His goodness in that He has faith in you that you are willing to walk around your Jericho. I can't wait to see the day your little ladies are home with you! :) Oh, & to answer your question..we do. Amazingly, we do! Coincedance? I think not! LOL! :)
