I received this from my husband who got it from a friend and right now this speaks so strongly to me that I wanted to post it and share it. May it bless you as it continues to bless me. ^i^
My Lord God, 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, I will 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. – Thomas Merton (Thoughts in Solitude)
