We have determined that E is suffering from some anxiety and it is showing itself in physical symptoms. IE - her loose stool is from being upset over all the crap (no pun intended) that has been going on and all the changes. We are working on some relaxation techniques to see if that will help. The poor girl still is having a really hard time coping with being stuck in the middle of an adult issue. I keep telling myself that in the long run she will be stronger, but I still feel horrible and tremendous guilt for I placed her in this situation. I let the relationship grow between T and my family. I couldn't control my emotions and got us kicked out of the place she had been the last 4 years. I didn't protect my baby. - SIGH.

Every problem is an opportunity to trust God.
We all experience difficulties, problems, and trials throughout life. Usually, we also look for ways to solve those problems. All of the various solutions basically ask one of these two questions: "What can I do to solve this?" Or, "What can God do to solve this?"
In other words, we either try to solve the problem on our own, or we let God solve it. Obviously, it is much wiser to give your problems to God.
Therefore, in the midst of your problem, Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding (Proverbs 3:5). Trust God to solve your problems. Trust in the LORD forever, for the LORD, the LORD, is the Rock eternal (Isaiah 26:4).
During your trials you should frequently quote Psalm 91:2: I will say of the LORD, "He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust."
Furthermore, when you're truly trusting in God, there is nothing to worry about. Jesus said, "Do not let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God; trust also in me" (John 14:1).
Make this your cry: "Some trust in chariots and some in horses, but we trust in the name of the LORD our God" (Psalm 20:7).
Trust the Lord God Almighty in every area of your life, even during problems, because every problem gives you an opportunity to trust God.
