Merton

My Lord God, I have no idea where I’m 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 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 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 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.
