Superhero Faith


Each Wednesday my husband volunteers at Spin, our church's youth group. This past Wednesday was Superhero Night and I was able to join in the fun. 

As I listened to one of our pastors speak on Superhero Prayers, I thought: What are my BIG prayers? What could God do that would really blow my mind? One answer- Baby Q. 

I know in my heart that Baby Q is on the way, but if I'm being honest my fears sometimes get in the way of my faith. My biggest fear is about raising the money. We need all $30,000 before we can be seen by birthmoms, and as I work on the paperwork for the home study, I find myself worrying about finishing the process and not having the money to move forward. 

Well, God must have heard my heart. Our lead pastor and friend, Tim came up to us in the lobby after Spin and said "Move forward with the process, God will make a way." 

I've replayed those words in my head a hundred times since Wednesday, and I will keep replaying them until my fears become something of the past. 

My ah-ha moment came today while I was reading my Bible:





God made sure we knew that fear does not come from Him. God gives us power, LOVE (there's that word again), and a sound mind. 

OK, LORD. OK. I WILL HAVE FAITH. 

I WILL PRAY UNTIL MY FAITH IS BIGGER THAN MY FEARS. 


I WILL TRUST THAT YOU WILL MAKE A WAY.  

Oh yeah, and speaking of superheroes...
 Superman was adopted, too. :)
