Out of control; feeling troubled; Uncertain of the future; Why do I feel so out of control of my life?
Dear Lord, I am so troubled about my condition. I feel “boxed in”! I don’t have a good feeling about my future! Yet I know You have given us a choice when you told us (through the Disciples) not to let our hearts be troubled! We tend to think problems confront us and our hearts respond by being troubled. However You, who knew of pending torture and death choose not to let Your heart be troubled! So help us with this choice! Help us feel Your comfort, wisdom and love so that our hearts will have peace.
Peace I leave you. My peace I give you. Do not let hearts be troubles and do not be afraid!
For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil to give you a future and a hope! (Jeremiah 29:11)
