Be at Peace

I love this little prayer so much. I read this, and I get a wonderful sense of calm. The thing is - there are so many things in life that we have little to no control over. Worrying about them is not going to change them. So this is me - attempting to be at peace.
Yes - this a repeater post from a year or so ago. Sorry.
"Be at Peace," by Saint Francis de Sales

Do not look forward in fear to the changes in life;
rather, look to them with full hope that as they arise,
God will lead you safely through all things; and when you cannot stand it, God will carry you in His Arms.

Do not fear what may happen tomorrow;
the same understanding Father who cares for you today will take care of you tomorrow and every day.
He will either shield you from suffering or will give you the unfailing strength to bear it.
Be at peace then, and put aside all anxious thoughts and imaginations.
