My husband, Adrian, always says that God doesn’t desire for His will for your life to be a big secret. I nod in agreement most of the time, but when things don’t go as expected in our lives, I take a step back and ponder the truth of those words.
Three years ago this January, Adrian was preaching on a cold Sunday morning. It was a message about saying yes to God right now, not letting excuses come in the way of obedience. Right in the middle of his preaching, as he describes it, the Holy Spirit arrested his heart and spoke clearly, “I’m speaking to you, Adrian. No more excuses. It’s time to move forward and begin the adoption process.” We’d talked about adopting for nearly a decade at that point, even before we married. But life happened; moves and babies and job changes and ministry and more surprise babies. The timing just never seemed right. On that day, though, the Lord made it clear: “Now.”
