I am trying to enter into a good discernment process, my prayer time is sparatic at the moment, but it is getting better. I have emailed a local priest on questions i have had and he has been helpful , I am returning to college next month, after dropping out around 2 yrs ago, as a first step or additional step in my discernment process… In that I need to finish what I start, and if I can not finish this how can i expect to be successful in progressing into a vocation which would require a masters degree.
On top of that my Mother is going into surgery next month, right smack in the middle of me returning to college, so I will have my hands full on top of trying to have a more active prayer life/ and discernment process…
so my question is, at what point do I say I am ready for a Spiritual Director ?
On one hand I am thinking now would be the perfect time to ask this priest i have been conversing with to be my S.D , because I have so much coming up and there is so much on the line to me…
Should I wait a bit more, focus more on actively praying more often, attending adoration and daily mass, work on getting through my mothers upcoming surgery and give myself a chance with returning to college, before asking for a Spiritual Director ?
On top of that my Deacon finally returned my call and will be training me in May to be a Eucharistic Minister, rather excited about that, even with a full plate ahead of me, but feel this is going to be something to help me in my discernment and be more active in faith.
So to sum it up even shorter, at what point do I need to seek a Spiritual Director in my discernment process .
