God's work


"Fickleness and indecision are signs of self-love. If you can never make up your mind what God wills for you, but are always veering from one opinion to another … from one method to another, it may be an indication that you are trying to get around God’s will and do your own with a quiet conscience. So keep still, and let God do some work."

Thomas Merton

Nice one.

I stumbled across this at http://anamchara.com/2010/01/11/the-two-faces-of-restlessness/ and it seemed to correspond to some of what you are saying here too.Hope you find it of interest.
Is your new year a good one so far ??
