Thomas Merton

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.

Sally Lloyd-Jones

God is my shepherd and I am his little lamb.
He feeds me
He guides me
He looks after me.
I have everything I need.
Inside, my heart is very quiet, as quiet as lying still on soft green grass in a meadow by a little stream.
Even when I walk through the dark, scary, lonely places, I won’t be afraid because my Shepherd knows where I am.
He is here with me; He keeps me safe He rescues me.
He makes me strong and brave.
He is getting wonderful things ready for me, especially for me, everything I ever dreamed of!
He fills my heart so full of happiness I can’t hold it all inside.
Wherever I go I know God’s never stopping, never giving up, unbreaking, always and forever love will go to.
