You know the times when there are really just no words.....no words to describe how you're feeling, no words to truly express your gratitude, no words to express how much God just completely and utterly blows your mind? That's now. It's like Christmas as a child 5 million times over.
Just look a bit to the right....to the thermometer that was at 0 only 5 months ago. It doesn't know what to do since we've surpassed our goal. Well not we in any sense, but you know what I mean. I hadn't even thought to check our Lifesong account. I'd only given the information to three families. I'd checked it once. I've said it so many times, but this adoption is so not about anything we're doing.....we could do none of this apart from God's provision, apart from so many who have come on board alongside us. Again. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts....we know and understand this is not your resources, but God's.....but still........thank you.
6 Remember this: Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows generously will also reap generously. 7 Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. 8 And God is able to bless you abundantly, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work. 9 As it is written:
“They have freely scattered their gifts to the poor;
their righteousness endures forever.”[a]
10 Now he who supplies seed to the sower and bread for food will also supply and increase your store of seed and will enlarge the harvest of your righteousness. 11 You will be enriched in every way so that you can be generous on every occasion, and through us your generosity will result in thanksgiving to God.
12 This service that you perform is not only supplying the needs of the Lord’s people but is also overflowing in many expressions of thanks to God. 13 Because of the service by which you have proved yourselves, others will praise God for the obedience that accompanies your confession of the gospel of Christ, and for your generosity in sharing with them and with everyone else. 14 And in their prayers for you their hearts will go out to you, because of the surpassing grace God has given you. 15 Thanks be to God for his indescribable gift!
