Hi friends! I hope your week is going well so far. Today I wanted share a beautiful prayer from Thomas Merton. It is one I often find myself returning to, especially in times of particular uncertainty. I love the reminder that while we may have no idea what’s coming next, we can always trust our loving Father, who does. I hope it speaks to your heart as much as it does mine!
“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 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.”
