Sleepless in the country

OK so it was a rough night.I felt like I got married or something yesterday.
Your whole life changes. You have so many decisions to make.
So I woke up and felt like I couldn't breath...I was thinking all of these negative
thoughts and I woke my sweet hubby up and he just props up on his elbow and
says "so what is bothering you the most" I said what if this what if that..He says
God already has everything worked out....Why instead of thinking of all the negative
you think of all the positive.OK I could do that......
I ask for prayer over my thoughts I pray that I will take captive every thought...
Please continue to pray for Joesph Turner as he needs to stay healthy..
Please pray for our financial provision as we thought we would have a few months
to save up money..Please pray for our household that a calm spirit would reside..

much love,

I've been praying for all of these things already today!!! I shared your story with our small group. They love the passport story. You really need to blog the whole journey with JT b/c it is such a story of God's faithfulness. Already today, God used it as we studied "Trusting God" (which you need to go buy, by the way!)

Love you,

I had a really hard day yesterday too. I had a conversation with one of my relatives and she was so concerned about us adopting a child with cerebral palsy and asked alot of difficult questions. I answered them confidently on the phone and then got off and bawled for an hour. All the worries I had about "what the heck do we think we are doing?" came back and I really had to wrestle with major fear... But it was good, too, because God met me and reminded me to focus on him and give the fear to HIM... and that He wouldn't have lead us this way only to abandon us. What an mind-blowing "excercise" in faith and trust this all is with the HUGE unknowns we are facing... I'm so glad we aren't the only ones God tapped to walk down this road of unknowns! You guys are in our hearts so much and we are praying faithfully for you.

Sister, aren't you so thankful for a godly man! What would we do without our awesome help meets! Even with just starting the process of adopting has been challenging for me (and you know how I am about a challenge!ha) But Richard has been there to pick me up and remind me that God is in control and for me to sit back, calm down and let Him work! I have a long journey ahead of me and I am so thankful that I have not only my husband but my friends to pray for us and ask the Lord for His guidance during this time. I will continue to pray, share and thank God for all He has done and is going to do for you all and little JT White!
Love ya,
Michael :)
