My Lord God

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)
