Thought of the Day March 6, 2017

"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 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) Our life is truly like this at times. We don't know where we are or where we are heading. It is at those moments that I need to turn to Lord in self-surrender and trust. He knows where I am and where I am going. Placing myself in his hands is all that is necessary for me at the moment.
