Ethiopia's Ministry of Women's Affairs issued a directive saying it will process a maximum of 5 inter-country adoptions a day. This is down from 50 cases a day, about half of them to the United States, this according to VOA News. The change is effective as of March 10.
Just last night at Catalyst Judah Smith spoke on Proverbs 13:12
HOPE DEFERRED MAKES THE HEART SICK.
That is how I feel. It is how I imagine many of us feel right now. My heart aches.
But I have to believe that God is just setting the stage for His glory!
We must stay on our knees crying out to the Healer of sick hearts.
Judah Smith also said- 'Jesus is the sum and substance of ALL God's promises'.
We can ask in the name of Jesus, according to His will, and it will be answered.
Because the rest of Proverbs 13:12 says
but a LONGING FULFILLED is a TREE OF LIFE.
So I choose to believe in and hang on to the tree of life. Today I may be barely hanging on to a flimsy limb, but tomorrow I hope to be wrapped around the trunk!
Because God is good ALL the time. It's all He knows! Good gifts for His children.
So thank you to everyone who joined the fast today, I KNOW our prayers were heard.
