Lately, I've been wondering why it's taking so long for us to return to Ghana to bring Overcomer home. Amazingly though, I've been at peace overall throughout the long wait. Earlier this week,
I was shifting pictures around on the blog and I re-read the original prayer requests we asked people to pray throughout this adoption. It was a gentle reminder from God telling me to SEE His goodness.
These were our requests -
The Spirit of the Sovereign LORD is on me,
because the LORD has anointed me
to proclaim good news to the poor.
He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted,
to proclaim freedom for the captives
and release from darkness for the prisoners,
to proclaim the year of the LORD’s favor
and the day of vengeance of our God,
to comfort all who mourn,
and provide for those who grieve in Zion—
to bestow on them a crown of beauty
instead of ashes, the oil of joy
instead of mourning,
and a garment of praise
instead of a spirit of despair.
They will be called oaks of righteousness,
a planting of the LORD
for the display of his splendor.
