Adventures into Adoption

Positively

on November 10, 2015

Speak positive, be positive! When you are walking, it is easy to turn around & go the other way. Not so when you are trying to turn a habit.  I am an optimist…but only after a very quick & private pessimistic response. God has always allowed me to see the good when I look for it. My instant reaction is usually not the positive one that God has put in to my character. Those times that I panic is only because I was not speaking or behaving positively.

“Faith is the refusal to panic” – D Martyn Lloyd-Jones

When we don’t have faith, or USE the faith we have, it’s very easy to panic. One of my favorite bible passages is in Luke 21 –

26 Men’s hearts will fail them for fear and for looking upon those things which are coming on the earth; for the powers of heaven shall be shaken.27 And then shall they see the Son of Man coming in a cloud with power and great glory.28 And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up and lift up your heads, for your redemption draweth nigh.”

If we look around us, we lose heart. When we look up, it naturally lifts our eyes off of the circumstance, our heads to a confident position & our hearts to the One in charge of all things.  In adoption, moving, marriage, parenting or just plain living…”lift up your heads!”
