This is one of those moleskins that I’ll leave brief in the backblast, as it was mostly a few minutes of connection between myself and the guys who posted. In summary, this week marks a year since my divorce was legally final. It has been a hard week. Lots of emotions, lots of wondering where I am going and what is next. But I think that’s OK, and I’m trying to trust God to lead me through it. Thomas Merton’s prayer from Thoughts in Solitude has provided frequent solace over the last few years:
“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 will I trust you always though I may seem to be lost 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.”
