Prayer and high anxiety

We are praying for the closing on our house which keeps getting put off because of verification requirements for our buyers' financing. My husband seems like he is not worried. I am incredibly anxious and praying for resolution all the time. At this point it looks like we won't be closing until the end of this month (it was supposed to be last month) and I am just praying that it will all come together for all parties involved.

We had our first college worship service this week and it was so great to be back. I taught and led an interactive discussion and it was so nice. When I am with my college students--I feel like I have the best job in the world. When I am homeschooling my kids--I feel the same. As we transition out of here, I probably won't be a college minister anymore (although I expect never to stop ministering to collegians) and I may or may not be a homeschooler depending on how we feel God is leading us. My identity is so tied up in these two jobs, that it makes me nervous to think of who am I without these tasks?

In the meantime, God is providing for all of our needs. We have joy and meaning and purpose. We have a church family that we love. We are constantly making new homeschooling friends. We have new college students in town to love and care for.

And who of us by worrying can add a single hour to her life--or hour to her week for that matter?
