The Great Wall cannot be climbed by beholding every step that is ahead. The Great Wall is designed for one to only see one section of the wall at a time. If we were to see all the steps ahead of us to reach the top, most of us would turn around and not even attempt such a task. God used this aspect of climbing the Great Wall today to remind us of how much it parallels with the process of adoption. In so many ways, if we were to see all the steps ahead of us on this journey, our temptation most likely would be to turn and run. But God gives us the measure of grace required to see just the next step in front of us. Not the climb in its entirety, but just the next step. And He provides the strength and faith needed to climb even the most challenging parts of the journey. Today as we climbed, we were literally on our hands and knees at some points. And that is how it is going to be in this process of adopting Selah. There will be days when we are on our hands and knees crying out to God for answers, for direction, for the strength to fight for her heart. As we ask Him to prepare our hearts to meet her tomorrow, we are reminded of this song called "Love Alone is Worth the Fight" by Switchfoot. Selah's heart is worth the fight! No matter how hard the climb will be, we are all in.
Here's a link to the song that is on our hearts tonight as we pray for the strength to love and fight for Selah's heart! Please join us in prayer! Love Alone is Worth the Fight
