Thoughts from Thomas Merton

I found this on a friend's Facebook page, it totally fits where I'm at right now in life, AND I love Thomas Merton. I'm not sure which book this appears in, but I thought it was worth sharing.

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 I am following your will does not mean that I am actually doing so.

But I believe that my desire to please you does in fact please you. And I hope that 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.

 - Thomas Merton
