Dancing through the Madness

By Cassie

I have a year left of school and have spent the past year networking and searching for opportunities. I have came across many. Some too good to be true. Some too perfect to imagine. Some that I had to let go.

I am stuck in a place of confusion right now. I am not sure where I am headed or how I got to where I am. I was sitting in class the other day and our professor passed out this prayer. I wanted to share it with you:

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.
-Thomas Merton

I think that we all have been there at one point or another. Looking for answers that cannot always be found. Searching for the truth when it is hidden. Finding out that life is a dance and sometimes you have to pretend that you know the steps.

    Cassie,this is beautiful. It is fitting to where both Heather and I are in our business and life. Trusting Him and hoping we are pleasing Him in what we do daily. If we aren’t then what is it all for?
