Crazy Love!!

I've been a longtime follower of Linny's blog A Place Called Simplicity. She has just posted Crazy Love Challenge #5 and I'm linking our little fundraising site.

We believe that our family has been called to adopt. Finances are a stumbling block, but we know that God will equip us to complete that which He has called us to do.

I love this quote by Oswald Chambers:

"If Jesus ever commanded us to do something that He was unable to equip us to accomplish, He would be a liar. And if we make our own inability a stumbling block or an excuse not to be obedient, it means that we are telling God that there is something which He has not yet taken into account. Every element of our own self-reliance must be put to death by the power of God. The moment we recognize our complete weakness and our dependence upon Him will be the very moment that the Spirit of God will exhibit His power."
-Oswald Chambers

We are depending fully on Him to provide what we need to bring our daughter home. Isn't that what we ought to be doing all the time anyway?
