My heart is really missing La P lately.
I can't believe it has almost been 2 years since we found her.
To a confident 7 year old, welcoming us as her family.
It hurts my heart too much to let my thoughts of her linger very long.
My mind is now trained to be thinking of her constantly, yet cautiously.
I'm doing Beth Moore's Daniel study.
(It's really, really good.)
I did a different Daniel study not long after I met La P. The verse that jumped at me then is jumping at me again.
And He changes the times and the seasons;
He removes kings and raises up kings;
He gives wisdom to the wise
And knowledge to those who have understanding.
He reveals deep and secret things;
He knows what is in the darkness,
And light dwells with Him.
I thank You and praise You,
O God of my fathers;
You have given me wisdom and might,
And have now made known to me what we asked of You,
For You have made known to us the king’s demand.
Daniel 2:21-23, emphasis mine
If God can change the times and seasons and remove and raise up kings, why would I doubt that He can bring La P home to us???
There is no government situation or authority situation that He has not allowed. With one word from Him, laws and rules can be changed.
She is not with us because He has not yet allowed her to be with us.
That doesn't make me frustrated or angry. It gives me hope.
And whatever situation you find yourself in today...even those that seem hopeless...know that the same King who controls time, seasons and governments is also actively working on your behalf.
There is hope.
