Today’s writing prompt was to write about the last time I felt helpless and out of control of the situation.

Well that is an easy one.

I feel that way now. I have a tooth that is hurting a lot and I haven’t been able to get it fixed yet (although I have an appointment this morning!).

I also feel out of control of my job situation.  We owe some bill that need to be paid but our customers have not paid us. It is a frustrating thing to know you have money available to pay with but you cannot have access to it.

I don’t like feeling out of control of situations. I know that this happens so we learn to depend on God more but it isn’t fun.

I am reminded of Exodus 14:14Exodus 14:14
English: World English Bible - WEB

14 Yahweh will fight for you, and you shall be still.”

” The LORD will fight for you while you keep silent. “

I need to be patient and let God do the work he feels should be done but I like being in control. It is easier that way.

I guess I will have to learn and grow through these experiences.

Write in the comment about the last time you felt helpless and what you did about it.
