"What if there are children who will suffer
somehow because I failed to obey God?
What if my cowardice costs even one child
somewhere in the world his or her life?"The statement echoed in my mind and heart over and over again. It haunted me daily. I knew that if I were to disobey God's direction of adoption, that I could very possibly be costing not one child...but rather two children their lives. I use the word "I" in this post because the coward was in me, not Kurt.
The Bible says that one day we will all stand before God and give an account for our lives. I knew that I didn't want to stand before him and hang my head in shame because I blatantly disobeyed.
Therefore, I choose to obey. I don't want to be a disobedient coward.
I will choose to believe that my God is able to
do immeasurably more than all I ask or imagine,
according to his power that is at
work within me. Eph. 3:20
"Father God, fill me with the power of your Holy Spirit and blow my mind!"
