My Lord God,
I have no idea where I am going.
I do not see the road ahead of me.
I do not 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.
I will not fear, for You are ever with me,
and You will never leave me to face my perils alone.
Thomas Merton, Thoughts in Solitude (New York: Farrar, Strauss & Co., 1958).
