I'm not sure what to do. Aside from the bake sale, none of our fundraising efforts have accomplished much of anything this time around....and God has provided thus far. I'm contemplating giving up all fundraising efforts. It makes me sad for some reason. Maybe because a part of me equates that with giving up but that's definitely NOT what I intend to do nor is it what I believe God wants us to do.
In all of adoptions (with the exception of our first when I did not know the Lord), we did not do a ton a fundraisers and God always provided. I think the problem with this time is I'm convinced all of our resources are tapped out but perhaps that's the problem. Perhaps my thinking is off. Our resources (which we didn't necessarily consider resources in those previous adoptions either) are tapped out but God's resources never are.
Likely after this weeks raffle I will not be doing anymore fundraisers. I will just need to solely abide in God through prayer for Him to provide. We really do need prayer right now. $9300 in 5-6 weeks seems overwhelming.
No, I don't take this as a sign that we aren't to adopt these girls, I know what the Lords called us to do and we will wait on Him.
