"Seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you."  Matthew 6:33

Friends, pray for me.  I am so struggling right now...

Gonna be honest about where my heart is - I'm praying that prayer up there...but backwards.  I want the "all things added to me" before I am seeking God and his will.  That's an ugly realization.  I think I have gotten so consumed by the adoption, family circumstances, etc...I have been "seeking" God's will on those things and allowed my simple desire for God, and God alone, to get lost in the shuffle.  Now, I certainly don't want you to think I've gone all 'heathen' on you...that's not the case.  Just a good swift kick in my own pants about my priorities.  I want to desire him above everything else. 

My blog friend, Jennifer, wrote the most incredible post about this...I hope you'll head over and be encouraged!! 


  1. One word my dearest friend.... SURRENDER! (Even if you want to grow bangs to cover it) hehe....

    love you and am praying for you and for all we talked about.

  2. I am right there with you friend. When we are so focused on what we're wanting and lacking (a little one/new little one) we get caught up in that and forget about the only person who can make that miracle happen.

    God is in control and surrendering to Him will give you the peace of knowing that, while you don't know the end of the story, you DO know the author.
