As is written of me in the scroll, behold, I come to do your will, O God.  Hebrews 10:7

God’s will.  Wish I knew what it was.  I pray for it every morning, everytime I feel lost, everytime I think I should do something different.  It’s not always easy for  me to define or find.  So I rely on Thomas Merton to explain it for today.  

He prays: My God, I have no idea where I am going.  I do not know the road ahead of me. I cannot be certain where it will end.  Nor do I really know myself, and the fact that I think I’m following your will doesn’t mean that I am actually doing so.  But I believe the desire to please you actually does 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 to the right road though I may know nothing about it.  Therefore I will trust you always though I may 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.

Peace my friends.

Rev. Joan
