Today – a poem, a message and a prayer.

Today....

I have no idea where I am going….but I know Who I am going with…
I have no answers to give to anyone…but I know Who holds the answers for me…
I am not sure if I have anything to give..but I know Who my Source is.
One day I will be perfect, but I am not now, nor will I be in the near future…but there is One Who accepts me in the here and now.

So for the moment, I am not afraid.
Yet I hear/see things that make me feel be annoyed, even angry, bur I refuse to be hateful or hate[filled.

I can and will try and do something good.
I will try to resist evil, speak truth. “love mercy, do justice, and walk humbly”.
I will try to make you know that you are precious.
And I hope I can make you laugh.

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 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.
– Thomas Merton, “Thoughts in Solitude”
