The Faith + Coffee Cure

I don't know what it is about today.

Perhaps it's a dip in the "roller coaster" of our family's journey.

I can't quite put my finger on why I'm feeling discouraged.

Drained.

Exhausted.

Completely exhausted.

I hate waiting.

I've never been the most patient person [most of my family members and friends can attest to that].

So this whole waiting "stuff" has sucked all the energy out of me.



Even my morning coffee isn't offering its usual fix.

It's easy for me to get lost in the notion of, "What's this all for?"

And with no concrete timeline mapped out for our adoption, I'm finding myself frustrated and
sometimes lost in the fluidity of the situation.

I hate uncertainty.

And it's driving me crazy not knowing what the next week or few months will bring.

What paperwork we forgot to file.

What application we need to fill out.

What tests we need to complete.

It's hard to keep up.

And frankly, I'm overwhelmed.

But seemingly just when I needed it this morning, I read a devotional given to me from Chris' aunt Sally.

Today's words:

"I can meet every one of your needs."

My feelings of discouragement haven't completely subsided.

But I'm comforted.

Every one of our needs will be met.

Even on this unknown path, and the feelings of discouragement this morning, I'm reminded that faith [and coffee together] can cure just about anything.
