The end of the school year is in sight! Our friends in IB are studying like crazy for their exams, and we all have our eyes on summer. Stay focused – you can do it!
Thomas Merton, one of my favorite contemporary spiritual writers, wrote this prayer. You can find it in his book Thoughts in Solitude. I thought it might give you some inspiration for the rest of the school year:
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.
And if that wasn’t enough, try this video. If this doesn’t do the trick, I don’t know what will!
