Do not let your hearts be troubled.

"Worrying is carrying tomorrow’s load with today’s strength-carrying two days at once. It is moving into tomorrow ahead of time. Worrying doesn’t empty tomorrow of its sorrow, it empties today of its strength."

Corrie ten Boom had plenty of cause for worry over the course of her lifetime. During World War ll, she, along with her father and sister, provided a refuge in their home for a number of Jewish friends, playing a pivotal role in the Dutch "underground" who sheltered Jews. Their home was eventually raided and the entire family arrested, her father dying in prison and her sister in a concentration camp. Corrie was sent to a series of camps but was released, and afterwards told her story in a book called The Hiding Place.

Corrie’s heart must have been troubled, often, but her strong faith sustained her and became the lens through which she viewed her life story: "Every experience God gives us, every person he puts in our lives is the perfect preparation for the future only he can see."

The majority of us will never have to deal with as desperate a situation as Corrie’s. But we have our own anxieties, whether big or small. None of us knows how the future is going to turn out, and that is precisely why we tend to worry. In today’s Gospel Thomas frets: "Lord we do not know where we are going, so how can we know the way?" But Jesus has reassuring words. "I am the way." Hand in hand with Jesus, we can walk the road ahead.
