He Is My Strength And My Song

IT IS OFFICIAL...DRUM ROLL PLEASE....WE HAVE BOUGHT OUR PLANE TICKETS...woo hoo!!!! Ryan and I will be leaving on October 10th, we will arrive on the twelfth in Entebbe, and hopefully get to see our son, soon thereafter. The court date is scheduled for the fifteenth. In most situations...at the court date the family is given a date for the next ruling...then after the verbal ruling is given....a written ruling is given...then we can get his passport and visa. Then we can bring him home!!!!

As I was talking to the travel agent...I had to project different scenarios....one trips, two trips, if the first trip needs to be extended...etc. I could sense that I was getting a little apprehensive and overwhelmed about the future. This is what I read from Jesus Calling immediately following.

Trust Me and refuse to worry, for I am your strength and song. You are feeling wobbly this morning, looking at difficult times looming ahead, measuring them against your own strength. However, they are not today's tasks--or even tomorrow's. So leave them in the future and come home to the present, where you will find Me waiting for you. Since I am your Strength, I can empower you to handle each task as it comes. Because I am your Song. I can give you Joy as you work alongside Me.


  1. What a good word. I love Jesus Calling. Thanks for sharing it. Still praying for you and yours.

  2. YAY!!! Plane tickets!!! You are on my list for October 10th! That will be here before you know it! Love the comforting words from Jesus Calling. We are praying!!!

  3. I pray for y'all every day and will continue. Now we will pray for specific dates!!! Praying that this trip will be one of the most joyous times in your life, that you will enjoy getting to see where your sweet Judah was born and of course, for all the details to be completely smooth. We are so excited for your family!!
