God is in control!!

Here's a taste of our lives right now. We're scrambling like crazy to get things done.We need to move out of our house by august 1st so we can find renters. In the last 3 days I've put base boards in, put drywall and shelves in an unfinished closet, rebuilt a gate that had fallen apart, and started work on our patio cover. It doesn't sound like much but I've been running myself ragged. We also designed new support cards, made a powerpoint presentation, fixed my truck, spoke at a youth group, had my birthday party, posted adds on Craigs list, and got ready for a huge yard sale... all while taking care of two kids. 
Now all we have to do is: pack, finish roofing the patio cover, paint the patio cover, stake some trees up, prune some other trees, finish installing the edging in the back yard, find a rental agency, paint the entire house, stain the cabinet doors and install them, finish a brick walkway, speak at a church this sunday, caulk the crown moulding and base boards, sell what doesn't sell at the yard sale, move into my parents house and still take care of our two kids.
I hope you are all encouraged to move out of the country. Or just move quickly. It's odd though, with all of this going on, and there's even more I'm sure, we aren't stressed. For some reason I know that even though our list is huge and our time is short God has a plan. Really He could make the days longer, or the sun reverse direction in the sky. He will get it done, or help us get it done, on time. There's no question that we're in His will therefore there's no stress or worry. After all, Matt 6:34 says,"Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own."
Isn't it great to know that God is in control!?!
