    I am praying for you. I read your profile before answering and hope that you are ok. Please know that God loves you and cares about you. I would encourage you to continue praying for faith and trust God to provide a solution one way or another. I pray that God complete His purpose in you, that He uses this experience and the outcome of His will to draw you closer to Him and increase your faith beyond measure. I pray peace and comfort and health over you. In Jesus name. Amen.

    I have what I think is a good answer for you, but in order to answer
    your question, I have to ask one of you first....Where is your faith in God?  If you are a Christian, and truly honestly believe in what is Written in the Bible, you will have no problems holding onto faith. Unfortunately today, the great deceiver is rampant among us and on a daily basis tries to destroy the Faith which being true believers we have and do not question.  Fear comes not from God or from Jesus--it comes directly from Satan himself.  He is a liar. He is bound to destroy faith, honesty, good will and more importantly if he is able to destroy our faith in God and the Word, he is made happy.  You must understand that the words in the Psalms will help you--also Proverbs.   It is written that all the things which are currently happening today and all around the world are coming to pass.  Read your Bible and stay close to the Lord Jesus Christ...in Him you will hold onto your faith.....Do not be a follower of the world and follow the Ten Commandments.  A true believer will be bashed continually, but the rewards of heaven are greater than those in the world.   I may not have answered the answer you were hoping for, I only answered in the way I know to be correct and true.  Please do not give up on God, because no matter what, Jesus loves you......things are crumbling for the very reason the Israelites wandered aroung in the desert for 40 years.  They would not follow Gods Commandments.   
    I also pray in Jesus Name that you will find the Truth and comfort you seek in His Holy Word.....

    I'm not selling snakeoil,,,
         Pumkin,,,,reality is serioius and it has been even since man took it all upon himself.
         It sounds as if you need a miracle, maybe even two or three, and you're a "smoking flax" kind of faith, please forgive me.
         I don't deal well with the uncomfortable and in this public forum, there are a lot of toes to be stepped on.
         This may be a good time to get your life in order, and forgive me I hate to offend people.
         Is it possible in your situation to do any reading? The Word, can be pretty handy and even required reading, if you expect any results.
         Above all you must remain confident that He cares for you, you may have too many pets, and He is a jealous fellow, especially with your affections.
         Keep your eyes on Him, which you are not doing. Your eyes are on your problems, which is understandable, but who else can just deliver you from all of your problems? Only He can.
         He is the one who really cares for each one of us, we are all just little specks of sand on a beach of humanity.
         But He wants us to be sober minded, and He wants our attention, we are at war, He is at war, you are at war.
         Moving is very tramatic, and being sick is even more awful, I would always consol myself with His Word. In your situation you should develop a closer relationship to Him, after all He is alive and He inhabits the book. We are taught to be at war, but our duty is to be compassionate and sober minded
         Perhaps find good homes for at least three of your pooches.
         It is our duty to be closer to Him, and to put on His full armor.
         Living can be very difficult, for the wealthy or poor, never the less we are expected to seek His face.
         Develop a routine in life that involves Him, and the "race" all of mankind is in. The race to him.
         Forgive me for sounding harsh, to me it sounds very serious the things you have said. You want to keep your faith in these difficult things, but do you know how? It is by reading for your life and breath, and obeying as much as possible.
          Read 2nd peter, and 1 Jn. and don't stop there. You are looking for a fortress to protect you, it is in there Ps 91. You are wondering what to do it is there, hidden, yes hidden in 2 peter 5:1 and Jn 15,16,17:19-26.
         There is a cost, ph'p 2:12.
         Please don't give up, and fellowship, fellowship a lot.

    Oh, yes. You do have control. Grab your Bible, first thing. Read, just sit and read for a few minutes.
    Did you find anything yet?
    The Bible tells us, that we do control everything on this earth. If you feel that you are too weak at this point to maintain control, then turn the problem over to God, and ask Him to take care of it. Then, simply, let it go.
    It is actually quite easy, once you have learned to do it.
