My future


#1

Hello,

I do not know what to do for my future.

Studying or religious life, place to live, I do not know what God wants in this.

If I am studying full time, I can not go to Mass and pray as often and I will miss it.

If I do the religious life, it would be difficult because I could not find happiness in there this fall, but I would give my life to God.

I’m a little lost.

If I study, I could not make a prayer life and go to church as much and I will miss it.
I would like it if a religious life would make me happier.


#3

But I do not know what is my mission.

I would like that God gives me the grace and strength for me to give Him my life by a religious life.

You will say that I do not want to do the will of God which is probably another, perhaps that’s true, but it is because I feel the love that God has for me and that’s why I want to give my life dedicating myself to Him Him.

Do you feel the only way to dedicate your life to God is by ordination to religious life? People of all vocations love and serve the Lord, do they not? Perhaps make an appointment with a priest to.discuss you concerns.

Praying for you.

Take one step at a time then. Each morning do a morning offering and during the day offer each task to honor and glorify God. With difficulties, offer them in union with Christ for the salvation of sinners. If the date is the 6th, offer that day in union with the corresponding rosary mystery and ask our blessed Mother to protect and guide you this day.

Be faithful in these small things, and more things will be revealed. Be patient.

God bless.

Hello,

By questioning me and thinking about it and after talking to my accompanist for my retreat, My life choice for the moment is that I will study at part time and I will have a religious life at the same time because I will have more time to do that. This fall, when I was doing religious life, the thing that was missing was a volunteering that I love, so the volunteering will be studying part time and it is something I love, so it will help me have a balance in the religious life.

So my decision at the moment is taken.
