"Go forward," says the Lord!

It seems God keeps putting reassurances in front of me that we are meant to step forward in faith and pursue adoption. Yesterday, the pastor mistyped a slide in his Powerpoint, accidentally listing Titus 2:4 as his Scripture text. He didn't realize the mistake until someone stood up and read the text during the service.

that they admonish the young women to love their husbands,
to love their children

The congregation laughed but I smiled. The pastor could have typed Titus 1:4 or 3:4 or 4:4 or any other combination of numbers. But, he mistyped and had a text read aloud that reinforces God's calling for my life right now.

Then I open up Bible Gateway to copy the verse from Titus and find today's Scripture reading:

As for God, His way is perfect;
The word of the Lord is proven;
He is a shield to all who trust in Him.

Psalm 18:30

Thank you, Lord! We're stepping out in faith that this adoption is Your will for us!

If I have learned anything in my many years, it is that God speaks to us in many ways, even through the voice of an owl or someone's mistakes.
