The Pilgrim's Prayer

Some days just seem to blindside us, leave us reeling in the dark, wondering why. I'm so exhausted physically and emotionally. Yet, somehow, this day still gives me peace and hope.

I found a prayer this afternoon, it helps so much to express what I feel stirring inside me. I needed to hear and pray it.

I had to realize that it's okay not to know everything, not to have it all planned out. To admit that, sometimes, I don't have the answers.

A Pilgrim's Prayer by 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 will I trust You always though I may seem 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.


I helped write a song in Africa. It was right after an extremely heartbreaking moment, greatly distressing, to say the least. I'm going to end this post with its chorus. It's very simple but we don't always need to say much to truly be heard.

Even though I'm broken,

Lord, you take my hand. 

I will trust in You,

 Though I do not understand.

Have a good night ya'll, I'll see you next week.

  1. Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not unto thine own understanding... Yahweh doesn't call us to have it all figured out, or our plans laid out... He calls us to seek Him, and to trust Him. Sometimes, you can be so scared. And desperate. As the Dark whispers lies to you, and doubt rushes over you- you are drowning. But the Light, Yeshua, He is there- and when we turn our hearts over to Him, peace comes over us.
    One of the most ground-breaking parts of the Bible for me and my family is when Yeshua walked on water. He calls us to get out of the boat and walk on the water. When we keep our eyes on Him, we will walk on the water alongside Him. But if we let our eyes turn away, and see the world and seas raging around us, then we will surely drown.
    Yehovah bless, Thomas.
