Definition Gives Direction

Good morning all!
I'm here to share a definition
that was just brought to my attention via
an email from our agency, Lifeline.

Definition of calling: 
a strong inner impulse 
toward a particular course of action 
especially when accompanied by conviction 
of divine influence. 

The email referenced the following scripture:
"For this reason, since the day we heard about you, 
we have not stopped praying for you 
and asking God to fill you with the knowledge 
of His will through all spiritual wisdom 
and understanding. And we pray this in order 
that you may live a life worthy of the Lord 
and may please him in every way: 
bearing fruit in every good work, 
growing in the knowledge of God, 
being strengthened with all power 
according to His glorious might 
so that you may have great endurance 
and patience."
Colossians 1:9-11

Needless to say, it spoke to my heart.
I am so blessed to have felt that strong inner impulse.
I admit it took much prayer & meditation
before I realized it wasn't just my desire,
it was our family's calling to adopt.

It's been a long road.
But as we wait, we pray.
And as we pray,
we're strengthened by His spiritual wisdom.

So today while you ponder God's calling for your life,
please continue to pray for Emily Margaret.
Our dossier is currently making it's rounds here in the USA,
before heading off to China.

God's blessings friends,
we're getting closer!
Sarah :)
