Have Faith

When you give your life for Love…you will receive abundant blessings.

Psalm 37:5

Commit your way to the Lord; trust that God will act.

When you let go of your need for control…when you surrender your ego and its self-centered desires and turn yourself over to the will of God…you will seldom get clear answers.

You will seldom see a direct path.

That’s what faith is about…not having the answers and not seeing the road in front of you…but still trusting in the providence of God.

There is an Infinite Love at the core of all that is.

If you allow this Love to lead you…you may not find answers but you will find an inner peace as well as your true self.

Love is leading you to Love so that you know that you are loved…and so you share that Love with the world.

Try journaling about what happens in your life.

Then look back and see the winding thread of Providential Direction.

Faith is about not knowing…and still trusting.

I’m reminded of the prayer of 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 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, 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.”
