Desiring God

Where do I find my meaning to my life?  I realize once I accept that only God matters, that only through Him and His Son do I find my meaning, then every daily decision I make must be wrapped into this search, this commitment. And yet, I do not always know whether my decisions are the "right" ones.  With this context, I take comfort from what Thomas Merton has written about his journey, his seeking God's will:

"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 I am doing.  I hope that I will never do anything apart from that desire."
