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.
