Thoughts in Solitude by 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 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. 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 by  the right road though I may know nothing about it.  Therefore will I trust you always though I may seem to 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.
