When we turn our lives over to God, He begins to work in our lives. Courage does not exist except in the face of fear. We must ask God first for the willingness and then the ability to eat as we should.
Let me say again that you need to be patient with yourself. The more we seek Him, the more He works in us. Followed the path of peace: First, I began to pray regularly for direction on this matter. When you enter into this full surrender with God the Father — you are putting everything in your life to a maximum death in reference to yourself, since God will now be the One to control the direction your life will now be taking. I prayed the same prayer, felt the same calm trust. I trusted that if we were meant to get a house, I would find time to do the necessary legwork without having to set aside the foundational work of my vocation like taking care of the children, keeping some semblance of order in the house, going to church, etc.

The next life in heaven is nothing but a continuation of this life that we are living down here on this earth. Most people have concerns, but they usually pass quickly.
