Thomas Merton

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 I am following Your will does not mean that I am actually doing so. 
But I believe that the desire to please You does please You.

Therefore, I will trust You always, though I may seem to be lost and in the shadow of death. I will not fear, for You are ever near me, and You will never leave me to face my perils alone.
