For the Peace that comes with Perfect Trust

Ave Maria Meditations

     Oh, for the peace of a perfect trust, my loving God, in Thee; unwavering faith, that never doubts Thou chooses best for me!

     Best, though my plans be all upset; best, though the way be rough; best, though my earthly store be scant; in Thee I have enough.

     Best, though my health and strength be gone, though weary days be mine, shut out from much that others have; not my will, Lord, but Thine!

     And even though disappointments come, they, too, are best for me; to wean me from this changing world, and lead me nearer Thee.

     Oh, for the peace of a perfect trust that looks away from all; that sees the Thy hand in everything, in great events or small!

     That hears that Thy voice –a Father’s voice– directing for the best, oh, for the peace of a perfect trust, a heart with Thee at rest!

Our Lady found this unworthy lukewarm person and obtained for her the grace to enter the Third Order of the Franciscans of the Immaculate. May this person spend all eternity in showing her gratitude.
