Well, I know of at least one file that was released from IBESR, file number was in the 15xxx's, in January so far. Our # is 15xxx so I'm getting antsy. Please pray that I keep my sanity this month.
Our church is praying and fasting this month and me as well. As a matter of fact, our whole house is...except for Evy. I know that God is speaking amazing things into our lives. We are really going through some difficult growing pains. But I just know that there must be a reason for it. It's a good thing. And it will produce good fruit. It takes alot of pruning to produce fresh, healthy growth.
I remember when I was a little girl and our family moved into a new home. In the back yard there was an old rose garden. Over time, the roses became overgrown, unattractive, and didn't really grow many flowers. One early spring (it may have been fall, I can't remember), my mom cut those bushes so far down I thought she had killed them. But by next summer we had the most beautiful roses of many different colors. And you could just smell the fragrance as you walked into the yard.
The hindrinces that the Lord has pruned out of our lives, and is still pruning, is in many ways like pruning those flowerless bushes. And once the pruning is done it may seem as though there is nothing left. But as we witness the new growth come forth, we will soon find healthy, beautiful and fruitful blooms emerging from our lives.
Our household is being prepared for our new son to come home. I know it will be in His timing that our peanut will be here. I'm confident that it will be sooner than later. I'm believing God. And staying faithful to His call.
