Desire + Love

sunday reflection bis rests desire + love

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 form 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.

I will not fear, for you are ever with me, and you will never leave me.

-Thomas Merton, Thoughts in Solitude


All God wants for you is love. If you are bound by this love, you will do everything you can do to be of service wherever you are.

St. Catherine of Siena
