I have no idea where I am going.
I do not see the road ahead of me.
I cannot know for certain where it will end.
Nor do I really know myself,
and the fact that I think that I am following your will
does not mean that I am actually doing so.
But I believe that the desire to please you
does in fact please you.
And I hope I have that desire in all that I am doing.
I hope that I will never do anything apart from that desire.
And I know that if I do this,
you will lead me by the right road though I may know nothing about it.
Therefore will I trust you always
though I may seem to be lost and in the shadow of death.
I will not fear, for you are ever with me,
and you will never leave me to face my perils alone.
From Week 10 of the Online Retreat in Everyday Life
Someting told me to come here today. I don’t know what it is about Thomas Merton, but every time I’m struggling with something, I am lead to something he wrote, posted on someone’s blog.
Congratulations…God has just used you to deliver a very special message to a lost soul…me!
God bless you!
Adoro, funny thing…I forgot to post that earlier in the week, and it came to me as I was cleaning my bathroom and printing out the next week’s retreat reflections…so God intended it to be here for you. 🙂 Being an instrument is such a joy sometimes, and now is one of those times!
