Sleepless Nights

Well, it’s 2:45 a.m. on Thursday morning and I can’t sleep. I am not sure if anyone else in the group is feeling this way, but it is hard for my  mind to unwind.  I packed my suitcase today; I’ve been extremely emotional and I think it has to do with the fact that I am entering a place I know nothing about.  I don’t think I have ever been more anxious for anything. I have no idea what to expect or how I will react, and frankly, that scares me.  Recently, I’ve been caught in a tornado of emotions and the combination of anxiety, excitement, nervousness, and fear are leaving me with a bizaare feeling that I’ve never experienced. 

I understand that Satan likes to distract, so I am reminded of this verse, and pray that I abide by it:

“Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.  And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus” ( Philippians 4:6-7).

Pray for peace as we enter an unfamiliar place. Pray that we 100% TRUST.

    Stephanie, I have similar feelings whenever I embark on such huge journeys! I am so excited (and slightly jealous) for the team as y’all prepare to leave. Prepare to be amazed by the spirit and love of the people of Kenya! I am praying for you guys – for peace, trust, and the ability to receive the blessing God has for you. Buddy-up with my mom (Debi Huskins) and have an awesome couple of weeks. Mungu akubariki/God bless you! Micah 6:8
