He's in the small stuff

As the little book says, "Don't sweat the small stuff...and it's all small stuff." Sometimes that small stuff seems mighty big. Right now something that sure seems like small stuff caused another delay in our adoption journey. One thing I know for sure is that God knows exactly what day we will travel and He is working all of this out in His time. Last Friday, I got our envelope back from the Chinese Consulate and was so excited; that is, until I opened it and realized it had been returned to us for the second time due to a small little detail. There was a date that didn't match exactly and it had to be corrected. Frustrating again, but we corrected it and got it in the mail. I am hoping and praying it comes back to us for the FINAL time this week!

Ok, I need a few scripture reminders to cling to on this journey about how He sees every little detail. Send them to me sweet bloggy friends.

Psalm 27
1 The LORD is my light and my salvation—
whom shall I fear?
The LORD is the stronghold of my life—
of whom shall I be afraid?

13 I am still confident of this:
I will see the goodness of the LORD
in the land of the living.

14 Wait for the LORD;
be strong and take heart
and wait for the LORD.

I particularly loved this Psalm during our first two adoptions. It isn't exactly what you asked for, but thought I'd put it in there anyway. I'm so sorry for the continued wait, though! It's so hard. I know the Lord is working on things and one day you will know what was going on, but now it's refining time!

Romans 28 - And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose. 29 For those God foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the likeness of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brothers. 30 And those he predestined, he also called; those he called, he also justified; those he justified, he also glorified. 31 What, then, shall we say in response to this? If God is for us, who can be against us? 32 He who did not spare his own Son, but gave him up for us all—how will he not also, along with him, graciously give us all things? 33 Who will bring any charge against those whom God has chosen? It is God who justifies. 34 Who is he that condemns? Christ Jesus, who died—more than that, who was raised to life—is at the right hand of God and is also interceding for us.
