Let My Trust Be In Your Mercy (Thomas Merton)

Let my trust be in Your mercy, not in myself. Let my hope be in Your love, not in health, or strength, or ability or human resources.

If I trust You, everything else will become, for me, strength, health, and support. Everything will bring me to heaven. If I do not trust You, everything will be my destruction.

–excerpted from Thoughts in Solitude, by Thomas Merton.
(the title “Let My Trust Be In Your Mercy” was created by me for my blog…this is not the title given by Thomas Merton)
