XVIII. O Lord, how should I serve you? Where to go?

“Do not let your hearts be troubled. You have faith in God; have faith also in me. In my Father’s house there are many dwelling places. If there were not, would I have told you that I am going to prepare a place for you? And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back again and take you to myself, so that where I am you also may be. Where (I) am going you know the way.” Thomas said to him, “Master, we do not know where you are going; how can we know the way?” Jesus said to him, “I am the way and the truth 5 and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. -John 14:1-6

“O Lord, how should I serve You? Where to go?

What role have You created me to fill?

I yearn to act!” Then comes a whisper low:

“Where you now are, give this day to My Will.”

“O, won’t you tell me something of Your plan?

I want to please You. How, I cannot think.

Time wastes!” He says, “Dear child, please Me you can.

I thirst; converse with Me and give Me drink.”

“I cannot trust myself to find my way.

I patience lack as much as boldness fierce.

Why won’t You aid me, or my doubts allay?”

“Cease all this nonsense first, then doubts I’ll pierce.

You cannot find your way? Child, who am I?”

“You are the Way.” “I’m with You. Let fear die.”
