Isaiah 55

I received an envelope today.  It was a check for the first two payments for our adoption.  We sent away our paperwork knowing we would have this $3,700 due in the next two weeks.  We had no plan about how to get it and no idea where it would come from.  We only knew it would come.  After sending the papers in on Friday with zero reserve to pay the first fee, I found a message on Saturday morning in my inbox that said this payment would be covered because some beautiful friends were mailing a check.  It came today and this is the beginning of our story..the beginning of our Molly Kate.  A story that will be full of many, many people coming alongside us believing that our precious daughter is more valuable than anything this world can offer.  Many will pray, rally, shed a tear, and love on this amazing little girl in the years to come and this is the beginning.  On her check my friend wrote Isaiah 55.  This will be constantly on my heart and lips in the coming months. Thank you dear, dear friend.

Invitation to the Thirsty
55 “Come, all you who are thirsty,
    come to the waters;
and you who have no money,
    come, buy and eat!
Come, buy wine and milk
    without money and without cost.
Why spend money on what is not bread,
    and your labor on what does not satisfy?
Listen, listen to me, and eat what is good,
    and you will delight in the richest of fare.
Give ear and come to me;
    listen, that you may live.
I will make an everlasting covenant with you,
    my faithful love promised to David.
See, I have made him a witness to the peoples,
    a ruler and commander of the peoples.
Surely you will summon nations you know not,
    and nations you do not know will come running to you,
because of the Lord your God,
    the Holy One of Israel,
    for he has endowed you with splendor.”
Seek the Lord while he may be found;
    call on him while he is near.
Let the wicked forsake their ways
    and the unrighteous their thoughts.
Let them turn to the Lord, and he will have mercy on them,
    and to our God, for he will freely pardon.
“For my thoughts are not your thoughts,
    neither are your ways my ways,”
declares the Lord.
“As the heavens are higher than the earth,
    so are my ways higher than your ways
    and my thoughts than your thoughts.
10 As the rain and the snow
    come down from heaven,
and do not return to it
    without watering the earth
and making it bud and flourish,
    so that it yields seed for the sower and bread for the eater,
11 so is my word that goes out from my mouth:
    It will not return to me empty,
but will accomplish what I desire
    and achieve the purpose for which I sent it.
12 You will go out in joy
    and be led forth in peace;
the mountains and hills
    will burst into song before you,
and all the trees of the field
    will clap their hands.
13 Instead of the thornbush will grow the juniper,
    and instead of briers the myrtle will grow.
This will be for the Lord’s renown,
    for an everlasting sign,
    that will endure forever.”

Please cover us in prayer in the coming months and our precious treasure as she waits.
