The Journey

Posted by Major Dave on 6:22 PM in , ,
One of the core values of our little church is that of Journey. Like Abraham, we're trying to follow where God leads. It's a true adventure.

My good friend, Maj. David Ivany, just sent me this reading below from Thomas Merton. What do you think?

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.

Thomas Merton



Hello Dave, Andy here - what a wonderful prayer. The kind that makes you think it came from inside your own head. I suppose what strikes me about it is the importance of being vigalant about fixing our desire on 'pleasing God'. No easy task I think, but worth pursuing. And by the way, thanks again for your support in Texas. Stay in touch <>< Andy C
