A Little Pep Talk

I've been feeling a little blah, and disappointed about the whole adoption thing. Sometimes the wait gets to me and I think this adoption will never happen, that something will get in the way of it.  I need a pep talk!  I need to pump myself up a bit! Here goes:

For faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see.
Hebrews 1:1

guide me in your truth and teach me, for you are God my Savior, and my hope is in you all day long.
Psalm 25:5

We wait in hope for the LORD; he is our help and our shield.
Psalm 33:20

For in You, O LORD, I hope;You will hear, O Lord my God.
Psalm 38:15

Why am I so sad?
Why am I so upset?
I should put my hope in God
and keep praising him,
my Savior and my God.
Psalm 42:4-6

God, the one and only— I'll wait as long as he says. Everything I hope for comes from him, so why not? He's solid rock under my feet, breathing room for my soul, An impregnable castle: I'm set for life.
Psalm 62:5

but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.
Isaiah 40:31

Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, 21to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.
Ephesians 3:20-21

For everything that was written in the past was written to teach us, so that through endurance and the encouragement of the Scriptures we might have hope.
Romans 15:4
