As most of you know, Terry and I have had the house on the market since he became the campus pastor at Fellowship Uptown. For the most part I feel very positive and upbeat about the whole thing, even though two of my very good friends who live around the corner also have theirs on the market. I wish we would all receive offers on the same day, but I know that is virtually impossible due to the market in Corinth. But I digress...
I am absolutely positive moving to Dallas is God's plan for our family. I say with my mouth, "God is in control of all of this." I don't feel worried in my spirit about it at all. But my body is betraying my mind and my heart. I have started grinding my teeth more and more at night; causing headaches. I have a knot in my shoulder blade area I can actually see, and my sleep patterns are way off. Also, I could just cry at every turn--wait, maybe that's just PMS. ;)
So, why, when I feel so okay with everything spiritually and emotionally, am I physically falling apart? I am tired of praying about this and know when we do sell, I'll have a whole new list of stresses.
Until then I will just remember my favorite verse. It seems to do the trick on almost all occasions:
Phil 4:6 Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.
I have followed the above instructions. I believe God's word to be absolutely true. All I can do is wait for His answer.
