Adoption Anxieties Be Gone...

Posted by Lifetime Adoption on October 7, 2014

We wanted to share this adoption tip with you from Lifetime Adoption’s Founder Mardie Caldwell:

Bring your adoption anxieties to God where you can find peace with The Lord at your side. I often would not talk about my adoption anxieties which caused them to become bigger than they really were.

When we started an adoption support group, I heard others facing the same concerns and fears. I learned that where there was fear, there is not faith. Ouch. I wanted and needed faith that everything I was anxious about was not helping me and a form of faithlessness in God who had called me to adoption.

Concentrate on trusting God in your adoption and you will find your fearfulness will gradually lessen its hold within your mind. This is a continual prayer-

Lord help me trust You today in my adoption. I know you have a plan. Turn any anxiety to faith and calm my spirit today. Amen

The Lord replied, “My Presence will go with you, and I will give you rest.”

Exodus 33:14
