When we assist people through adoption planning, we understand that most birth parents and adopting parents are in a highly charged season emotionally. Here’s a sweet devotional from Jesus Calling by Sarah Young to help ground you, if faith is what pulls you through trials and challenges:
“It is not so much adverse events that make you anxious as it is your thoughts about those events. Your mind engages in efforts to take control of a situation, to bring about the result you desire. Your thoughts close in on the problem like ravenous wolves. Determined to make things go your way, you forget that I am in charge of your life. The only remedy is to switch your focus from the problem to My Presence. Stop all your striving, and watch to see what I will do. I am the Lord!”
