A Timely Message “Pay Forward” # 59

I greet The Indwelling Presence.

Today’s “Pay Forward” gift is - A Timely Message.  I found an old card with these prayerful words by Thomas Merton.  I have no idea when or where it came from, but it speaks to my heart, mind and soul.  And I want to pass it on to you.

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 through, 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. Thoughts in Solitude.  Thy Love, Thy Will Be done.
