If you have visited here before, you can probably see that I have changed the name of the blog again. I started blogging at 4URuthie to tell the story of our journey to adopt our 1st daughter. I changed it to Mountains for Maggie when we were praying for God to move mountains on behalf of our 2nd daughter. Well now it is no longer just Ruthie’s or Maggie’s stories. It is now our family's story, and the stories of those we share life with, as we Conquer Mountains together. Both ConqueringMountains.net and 4URuthie.blogspot will lead here.

Just Crazy- God is So Good

I would normally wait a few days after posting a video before I would post again, but I just couldn't wait to share this.

I just happened to turn on the TV in my bedroom this morning to catch the headlines when I saw a 10 second piece on flooding in Chongqing China. Apparently they have had a lot of rain over this last week that is causing the rivers to overflow. Over 100,000 people have been evacuated, 10,000 homes have been toppled, and several people have died. It occurred to me instantly that if we had not gotten our TA when we did (our July 3rd miracle that you can read all about in the June and July section) then we would be in Chongqing RIGHT NOW with all the flooding. I am so overwhelmed by the sovereignty of God and His perfect timing that I can't hold back the tears as I write this.

Here are a few pictures of the flooding that I got from the internet. I recognize one of these locations as somewhere we drove in our bus just a few weeks ago.

Wow...there are no words to express an appropriate amount of gratitude to The ONE who brought you through when He did! This is just a lesson to those of us who wait to travel, to continue to lean on Him and HIS perfect timing...there is always a reason why He orders our steps when He does! Thank you for sharing. GOD IS SO GOOD!!!! <><
