A prayer of trust

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 that 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


Waktu saya membaca doa diatas… rasanya apa yang selama ini menggumpal di kepala dan hati saya menjadi cair dan ter… akh apa yah… terkatakan, terbahasakan, terterjemahkan…. ah itu dia…Ter-terjemah-kan… mungkin itu kata yang paling tepat untuk menggambarkan ruang hati saya yang tersentuh karena kata-kata dalam doa itu. I have  all this things inside that words failed to explain. And this prayer capture part of it.

Just share it…. (^^)>. Enjoy…this is for those who always questioning God and self like I do.
