I wanted to share with you a beautiful vision the Lord gave me yesterday. As I was praying for Haven the Lord showed me these huge hands. Cocooned inside them was a heart, nestled safely and protected by the strong hands that surrounded it. “I have Haven’s heart, I am protecting it and shielding it until you get to her. I am preparing her heart for your arrival” said the Lord to my heart.
I was deeply encouraged. One of the main things that I have prayed for over the last year is Haven’s transition into our family. Funny, I am not too concerned about her special needs, I have actually given it all very little thought. So many people have suggested that I educate myself about autism and be prepared for the road ahead, but it has just not mattered to me. I have always felt that I will handle things as they come up, just deal with it. But, her little heart and the journey that she will make into our family is the thing that has concerned me the most. She is an afraid, terrified little girl….the first few days could be absolutely frightening for her. God so encouraged me…He has once again gone before us, He is holding her heart and protecting her even now…just as He has done since the day she was born. Everlasting Father!!!
Three more weeks in an orphanage sweet girl…that is all you have left.
