The initial shock of what needs to be done to get this project started is absolutely crazy. I go to bed thinking about it and wake up wondering why we haven’t accomplished anything yet. I do know that a lot has been accomplished. We have formed our board, we have a wonderful advisory team that meets and prays with us consistently, we are in the process of developing this website, and many other things have happened that are awesome. But there is so much more to do and it seems like so little time.
As I wrote that, I realized something that I have heard from 3 different pastors in the past week…That God is on a completely different plane than we are. When I think about how difficult this task is, He thinks about how easy it will be. I mean after all, He did create the universe, He did die on the Cross for a bunch of ungrateful sinners, and He does love us when we in no way deserve to be loved. How easy is it for Him to accomplish His will by sending us to care for these children that He loves. It is so difficult to comprehend all the things that need to be done for this orphanage to come into being. But only from my limited prospective. From God’s perfect and sovereign prospective, it could not be easier, and I need to learn to rest in that.
