When I can’t find the words…

Ever been there and you honestly can’t find the right words to tell God….and get upset by the fact that he knows us inside and out so he knows what we are about to say before we do so you don’t see why you even have to bother…? And then somehow you just take a chill pill and just let him do what he wants..I have mentioned before that I have devotionals I subscribe to and upto now I find it creepy that sometimes they literally take the words out of my mouth.
The other day I really had a score to settle with God and then when I went over my mail box, I found that what I instead had to say to him, was there waiting for me…

“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 that I have that desire in all that I am doing. 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

It always gets better.
