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.
