Making It Much

God has taught us so much throughout our adoption journey(s) about His great love for us and our faith and trust in Him has grown by leaps and bounds in recent years. This morning our teaching pastor Andy Savage taught on the familiar story we all know about Jesus feeding the 5,000. I encourage all of you to go listen to it at if you weren't there to hear it. I felt like it so mirrored our life and what we are going through. The disciples said, "Do we have to spend all of our money...8 months worth of feed all of these people?" So many times, like the disciples, we have questioned the Lord's wisdom saying, "we don't have enough money to adopt!"

We are limited in our resources. The disciples were limited in their resources. As Andy said though, "part of growing spiritually is accepting that we are limited! We don't have what it takes." But here is where it gets good.....

The little is MUCH in the hands of JESUS! None of us has much to offer, but God can use it. God says to us, "You just bring me the little you have and I'll bless it!" That's exactly what God has done in our lives. He's been SO faithful in His provision to us for all that we have needed throughout this entire journey! What is He calling you to? What is He asking give your little so He can make it much? For us right now, it's bringing home another precious adopted child. We don't know what it will be in the future but we do know that whatever it is....we'll do it!
