Our lawyer called this morning and said that he was notified that our adoption was proceeding to the sentencing phase! That means in the very near future Natali and Neomi will be officially ours!
This quote has nothing to do with the a fore mentioned but it’s taken from “My Utmost for His Highest” by Oswald Chambers: “It is ingrained in us that we have to do exceptional things for God – but we do not. We have to be exceptional in the ordinary things of life, and holy on the ordinary streets, among ordinary people-and this is not learned in five minutes.”
So often we think we’ve got to be doing “great” and “awesome” things for God, and that if we are not then we are not a good, sound, mature, and holy Christian. I think the point that we often miss is that doing great and awesome things for God starts with obeying Him – doing the small, ordinary, and everyday things of life. Often those “great” and “awesome” things are merely living the Christian life day after day.
