I am still feeling really out of it; a bit unsettled and jittery yet really tired at the same time. Weird.
This summer at staff conference, a colleague of ours shared this prayer of Thomas Merton
It really spoke to me so I thought I would share it with you:
A prayer of trust for when the way is uncertain
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 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 with me,
And you will never leave me to face my perils alone.
