Great things are HAPPENING

WE STOPPED praying answers and started praying REQUEST and according to the LORDS Will be done on Earth as in Heaven.  And we are seeing Action and Results.  WE are very excited to see that God really does have a PERFECT PLAN in our situation and IF we will just sit back and go threw the doors GOD opens and relax it will all come to pass.  We are excited  that God is sending my husband to a job in Huntsville Alabama Thursday 3/1 and we just happen to have  2 wonderful friends who are intercessors in prayer and prayers that reach the realms of Heaven.  This group of women pray for hours the last prayer group they had started at 6:30 pm and went to 1:30 am. That is what I am talking about. I am over joyed to the max that God, the God of the Universe has allowed my family to be in Huntsville Alabama for this prayer meeting that is for OUR adoption.  We are going to see sparks fly, mountains moved, and God do a NEW thing like never before.  I just cant wait if anyone ones to join us at the same time we are starting our meeting at 6:30 will be praying at 7pm  We will pray Our Adoption/ leaders, Judges orphanages and the whole country we are adopting from and Salvation for these people, (GOD CAN) The Orphans, and Fruit of the womb for women who desire to bare Gods seed and want to get Pregnant.   If that is you leave your prayer and I promise you we will prayed for you Thursday night.
Our 1st Adoption Benefit dinner will be held in Charlotte NC March 11 given by our good friends Tom and Tammy with help of so many to make this possible.  WE  are so excited just waiting to see what God is going to do this day. I am sure our minds will be blown away.  Because we Know when God is in something He always does more than we can ever imagine.  It is really like  a full circle Providence Road is the church that we started at when we got married. God was so good to us and He found us a wonderful family ( The BODY OF CHRIST) that loved us through are craziness of being newly weds, getting pregnant 3 months after being married,  and the craziness that all brought.  The friends I made there will never BE forgotten and I do still miss them dearly. I can not wait to see so many of them, its like a mini reunion.  They will not believe Adam who will be 14 in 3 weeks shy of this.  They all new me when I was pregnant with him and worked at the church school as lunch room monitor, a job I LOVED. I loved my children. and I loved the people that worked there. They was so good to us and they loved Adam. He was the school mascot when he came.  Then due to job situation we felt we had to move Feb 28th 1999 I remember that day because Adam was sicker than a dog with way high fever and I cried the whole way to our new home.  14 yrs have passed since we left but my heart has Never forgot the people. They showed me Jesus and what Jesus looked like to an unsaved person.  At the time I didnt know I was unsaved. I was raised in church all my life, I got baptized so I thought i was saved. But I lived my life in ways that would not glorify God.  Was a bad person not according to the WORLD.  But in  Jan 26,2002 after a very impacting movie I realized all I had was a form of religion and No fruit in my life and if I died I would die and go to Hell.  It was that night on Jan 26th, 2002 I gave my life to Him and He saved me by His BLOOD PRAISE GOD. and its been a slow journey ever since. But the people who sowed into me in those times I thought I was saved mean more to me than ever.  They loved me anyways and showed me what Real love was in so many ways. I am so glad, God is using the BODY of Believers that we 1st started with 15 years ago.  I stand AMAZED at God in this FULL Circle to Bless us Again in a NEW JOURNEY IN our lives. The journey of Adoption. Thou we have hit bumps and changes along the way we see God still opening doors and we are walking threw them. Gods timing can not be better He knows what we need and He knows when we need it and he knows how he is going to Provide it. THis week I have let go of the stress of wondering how we was going to do this. Many of you may know are story.  We did not go looking for adoption it found us. We been adopted mind and wanted too but felt How COULD we?  We are not the likely people to adopt.  WE are a single income family and adoption is not in the American BUDGET.  SO we thought God was out of His mind.  But we was crazy enough to believe Him when He gave us the verse in 2 Corinthians 8:10-12 And in this I give advice. It is to your advantage not  only to be doing what you began and were desiring to do a year ago. But now you must complete the doing of it, that as there was readiness to desire it, so that also maybe a completion out of what you have. For if there is a willing of mind, it is accepted according to what one has and not according to what he does not have.  So God already knew what we have and dont have.  This week I gave all this to God.   For a year and half since Oct 10, 2010 I have been carry burdens in this adoption that are not mine to carry. God asked us to be Obedient.  Period!  Not to try to figure it out and try to plan it and make it all happen.  I have come to realize that when we try to carry the LOAD that can delay a lot of Gods progress in our lives.  Until we move out of the way we are at a road block. Well folks I have moved out of the way and I have surrender to this one thing.  GODS Will!!!!!  Whatever that looks like.  I dont know what that is right now exactly.  One thing we know is we are adopting one of the MOST Precious baby on this side of Earth.  He will be our son, he will be 2 in MAY.  We are absolutely thrilled to death with this.  And if God decides to give us the privilege of adopting the ONE we had originally went After too along with Chance PRAISE GOD. WE want him too.  IF he decided to give us another one since we are qualified for 2 Praise God.  WE will  not turn any blessing HE has in store for us.  We did that for too long....:(   He knows what the need is and I know in my heart He will provide exactly  what we need no more, no less. GOD is faithful folks and I am glad my husband is Radical enough to not question God but TRUST His heart and Will for us. There is Peace in and of its self in that. I have such Peace and Happiness in my heart these past couple days I just cant contain my self. And I know its the work God is doing in me just to trust Him in Blind faith. Something I talked about but know now, I wasnt believing it one hundred percent.  My husband now that is a different story. He is the ROCK he has not one time wavered in this adoption even when All Hell has come to us from all directions even directions never expected. But he has stood strong. He has never once wondered how we was going to do this adoption.  He has had the faith in God to know some how some way He would provide.  I love my husband and I love the man God has shaped him into. He is a very wise man and I should of just listened and watch and believed so much sooner.  We might of got to where we needed to be a lot sooner. But that is hind site and we cant go back we can only go forward. WE are moving forward and we cant wait to bring our BABY home.  WE are believing God for great things things that are literally out of our control that only He can do.  So please believe with us and just pray:  Lord we pray ACCORDING TO YOUR WILL for the PETITTS. In Jesus NAME. and God will take care of the rest.  Because whatever it is, it is already done its just waiting to Manifest.  Love you All thanks for coming along on our Journey to SAVE A LIFE now lives.

Eric Ludy - Depraved Indifference

If we could all walk in this HOW much different our lives would be in the WORLD. As you watch Let God touch you to Make a DIFFERENCE. Change the area to any country that has ORPHANS. You may not think you are called to Adopt but you are Called to HELP. Make a Difference TODAY. Help us to bring the Child(ren) that God has choosen for us.

Standing on the Rock, not on sinking Sand.

God has the Perfect little one in mind for us. And we are thrilled at GODS choice.  We will go to Country when they start taking referrals again to formally get it and meet this special one.  I feel as I have labored in Pain for 14months.  What a roller coaster we have been on.  But last night I had an all nighter of just seeking God.  My Bible tell me Seek him and you will find him, ask and you shall receive, Knock and the door will be opened.  Well we have done all 3.  As I have said we believe God is ll All Powerful and men cant stand in God's way of His divine Purpose and Perfect plan for our lives.  We believe that in the end if God chooses to send Kolya Home with us despite all that has been said, or speculated then IN deed we will have 2 of the Greatest gift known to man.  Children hand picked by God.  Many of you have walked this Journey with us to SAVE A LIFE of one boy who does not know just how much we adore him and Love him.  But we know one day he will  know the TRUTH despite what has been said or not said.  Truth will always stand the test of time.  We have gained a spiritual Son if nothing else. We will pray forever for this precious child that we have had the privilege of pursing the last year and half.  Please continue to pray for our sweet Cole.  Pray for Salvation,  against fear of the unknown and the Lies of the enemy.

I have been reading an amazing book called What Happens When Women Pray by Evelyn Christianson.  IT is live changing. It has really made me to see that everything that has happened to me God does not make mistakes.  My whole life was not a mistake the detours, hard times, ect was not a mistake there is a Bigger purpose and a purpose in general may not see it on this side of earth but because I trust God I want to pray According to HIS Will not my Will.  Yes it has been disheartening the turns of this journey but GOD is all KNowing and He knows best and has a plan reguardless of the ending.  I went to church 2 Wednesday ago it was awesome there was a very spoke that resided in my heart and God was so good he brought it back to me yesterday. I am claiming it and I am believing it for the months to come.  The Chapter its self was Psalm 84:2,2.,3, 5, 7,8,9  the verse that was quoted was 10B For the Lord God is the Sun and Sheild, the Lord will give Grace and Glory.  NO GOOD THING WILL HE WITH HOLDFROM THEM THAT WALK UPRIGHTLY.  12 Oh Lord of Host, Blessed is the Man who trusteth i thee.

The verse was spoken and it resided in my heart. I didnt have a clue where this verse was in the Bible and God gave it to me yesterday as I sought Him.  I love it when He does that He is just confirming what he has already said.  I believe everything he has told me in my blog from Oct ,10 to now 2012. I know God has spoken these things to my heart. I hear what Man is saying, But my GOd says is There anything Impossible for God.  I will stand on the Rock and SAY a firm NO.  His ways are Higher than Mine and in my humanness I can not grasp the end result but whatever it is it will GOOD and PERFECT because it is Gods PERFECT Will according to His plan for our lives.  I REST in this today and the next days to come.  Great Faith stretching Read.

When we are able to share the CHOOSEN one we will.  But I promise you when we can I will share it with Joy and Excitement.  OUR home will be filled with so much joy and the wonders of Gods goodness in the home after so many years will be just a Miracle one we have wanted so bad for so many years.  God is good and he is giving me the desires of my Heart.  We cant wait for the Choosen one..  They are so much fun and laughter.  Precious Precious.  Please pray country there is a measles out break and we had been told of fevers Sunday they not sure what it was so please pray for divine healing for the Choosen one Chance Matthew.  There is nothing worse than wanting to be with your choosen one and being far away and not being able to do anything.. Pray they will start giving REFERRALS again for the SAKE OF The CHILDREN.  Pray for all the government stuff worked out so these childrens lives will not be effected and not able to go to a FOREVER family that will  love and take care of them.  Blessings to all on this wonderful Day.  Keeping the Faith, My God is BIGGER.    Pray God will open the flood Gates of Heaven with His finances to BRING the CHOOSEN ONE HOME.

God Open Doors No man Can Shut...Close doors that no Man can OPEN.

Well a lot has transpired in the last two weeks.  Praise God for God and Praise God for all His Grace. Threw much Fasting and PRAYING this is where God has brought us in the The Petitt Adoption and A Journey to SAVE a LIFE.

  • A lot has happened in the last 2 weeks, Cole's brother as of right now has Denied us rights to adopt him. 
  • Threw much prayers and tears God has opened doors very wide to move forward in adopting a baby boy less than 24 months of age.  Girls are very hard to get over there and there is a very long waiting list and we don’t have that time since we have already been in this a year. The request went in today and we should have a baby to come and get referral for very soon.
  •  WE have prayed and have mourned over this turn of events with COLE and we are trusting God in His bigger plan in all this.   We feel we are to still bless Cole's orphanage.  We want the officials to  see we American people are for Love not Hate or War.  Over there these orphanages with the older children are very much scared of us. They think we are going to harm their children which is so not true. We are praying that this will open the orphanage and the older officials hearts to allowing other children to be adopted from this place without the fear we have had from the workers and officials in this area.. We can show them Christ Love threw the power of GIVING and Blessings their children.

  • We are raising the funds to get their orphanage a New Ping Pong Table and as many Ping Pong Paddles as we can and trinkets/gifts for at least 70 children,  candy for a PiƱata with lots of goodies and fun involved.  We want to have a “YOU ARE SPECIAL PARTY” for every CHILD there.  WE know its been at least 5 years that any child has been adopted out of this orphanage and the number of adoptions is a low as 4 or 6 in the whole orphanage. Really?  Really. The ages is 8 to 16 in this one place.  There is over a 170,000 orphans in our area alone.  We have been told that we can take bake goods over there so anyone who likes to do this FUN in baking, making treats and cookies before we leave we are going to take those there too.  We will send an email to all that might  want to love these orphans from a far with goodies.

  • WE KNOW God Can change these people’s hearts towards letting us bring COLE home and we are still believing God for the Miracle of these two children, that God has us qualified for.

  •  He gave us a verse to confirm Blessing the Orphanage and people with gifts:  Proverbs 18:16  A Gift Gets ATTENTION, it BUYS the Attention of EMINENT People.NLT   Proverbs 18:16 A mans gift makes room for him and brings him before great men.NKJ   We are confirmed that we are in the right direction.  A we have said from the BEGINNING, this is an ADOPTION BY FAITH not BY SIGHT.

  • Cole is still legally allowed to come to America if hearts and mind their minds.  But as I said GOD WILL have to MOVE THESE boundaries.   

  • His younger brother is never to be adopted he is in an institution severely handicapped from what we have heard.

  •  If God closes the door for him to come to American we are still going to support him if he wants to go to a home for those who have phased out of the system. We feel we have a life line with him and he will Always be our son whether legally or spiritually.  We are working on a place for him to stay and will have a place to live, 3 meals a day, learn a trade of his choice, room and board, and discipleship training as well.

  • We have cried, we asked God so many questions and he has been very affirming that we are right where he wants us and he will take care of us and this will all come to PASS according to His Will.  Romans 8:28 And we know that All things work TOGETHER for good of them who love GOD, to them who are called according to His purpose.  We are ready To BRING our “Chance” home.  And if God Brings Kolya home too that will just be just a Completed Blessings to this years JOURNEY.
  •  We know this has been a Journey of a life time with lives that will be touched for all of eternity.  We will not stop praying for every person that has had a part in these decision or in Cole’s life.
"May the God of HOPE fill you with all the JOY and PEACE as you TRUST  in HIM

Updating Briefly..

                                                                 WE STILL NEED 

Had a great Service today at Free Chapel, Gainesville Georgia with Jentezen Franklin.  An incredible speaker and Pastor. I feel very blessed to get to go.  IT on the internet live for all of you that are not close by.  You are missing out on a real blessing so go and listen to him. 
What he preached on today on that last day of the Corporate 21 day fast was absolutely amazing.  It was out of the book of Acts.  `
Sermon Summary:
Pastor Franklin encouraged the church at the end of the 21-day fast. He spoke on a passage of scripture in Acts about Peter being locked up in prison and how God delivered Peter.  King Herod did not want Peter to escape from that cell. Herod ordered that the amount of chains on Peter be doubled, as well as double the guards and a special watchman over Peter. However, when God moves on your behalf, it doesn’t matter what is binding you spiritually or the amount of watch over you, God will handle it for you. Greater is He that is in and with you than he that is in the world. The angel told Peter to rise up and the chains fell off. As Peter exercised a small amount of hope and faith that he was being released, the way out was opened for him.  Regardless of what you are going through, know that God is sending his provision and release for those chains and you will be set free.
 Key Point:
Fear not. What appears to be too much for you and is holding you down cannot hold down God.  
 Life Application:  
God has placed His mighty hand upon our lives and has granted us unmerited favor for all things. However, at times it seems that even though we know that God is with us, some goals, achievements or desires are impossible to meet. We must know that with God, nothing is impossible - regardless of what we see or feel spiritually. We do not have to walk in fear that we cannot do what God has called us to do. We must not walk in fear.
Discussion Question:
Why is discussing/ talking/ encouraging others in the small group important to do? (You never know what that person is going through, we never know what chains they are carrying, and we are usually scared, but in the relational setting of small group, it’s easy to encourage as well as open up and loosen the chains of fear.)
Spring Into Action:
Being fearful and timid is an emotion that everyone experiences and feels at some point. Even though this is true, we as believers don’t have to be fearful. Fear is not of God at all. In fact, God gives us a “fear not” for every day in the year (365 times) in the scriptures so that we don’t have to fear - that He will be with us, uphold us and guide us as we see in Psalms 27:1. Trust in God completely. Fear not and watch God do the impossible for you as He did for Peter!
 Key Point:
Where there is faith in God, God can move. Regardless of the amount of faith, God is able to do His will - just believe in Him. (In this scripture, Peter did not fully believe that he would be delivered, but God still came through for him.)
 Life Application:
Having faith in God and believing in Jesus Christ is the sole responsibility that God requires of us as a believer. Simply believe Him and all that He did and said that He would do. We see this in Luke 17:6 that having the smallest amount of faith can move mountains. So when the enemy appears to be strong, mighty and overpowering, we must only need faith the size of a mustard seed for God to move that seemingly so big obstacle for us with ease. However, it’s important to exercise our faith in God’s Word and with our small group so that when that mountain comes before us, we have no problem telling it where to go.
 Discussion Question:
How has God moved mightily for you when you only exercised a small amount of faith? How has God moved for you mightily when you only exercised a small amount of faith since you have been in this small group?
 Spring Into Action:
We must know that we are God’s children. Yes, it may seem easy to say this at times. But it can be hard to believe that we are His children and that He would do anything for us. There is nothing in God’s will for our life that he can’t do through and for us. By simply having faith in Jesus Christ whom God sent as our replacement, we can do all things by believing. Regardless of the size of faith that you have, God is able as long as faith is involved. Peter thought that he was in a dream when he escaped from prison with the angel in Acts 12. Physically he had no faith in his situation, but his dream had just enough faith and still God moved. This is promised to God’s children in Galatians 3:26. Regardless of the depth of your relationship with God, simply believing creates the possible. And God loves making the impossible possible for His children. 
 Enjoy  and Keep praying...  WE are at a very Crucial point.
