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.
