Walking the Wilderness

Even if I don't know where I am right know, I believe Thomas Merton understands:
"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 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."
I have a sense now I'm grieving a bit over the loss of GHBC.  I finished my work, but I miss that part of ministering and my new found friends.  God, be with them: Guide them and direct them, guard them and protect them, this day and forever more.  Amen.
