A search for a true vocation Part 1

I have decided that I am going to share my journey with you all I am am going to share the pains the joy the prayer and bible passages and the way people have encouraged this search for my service of the Lord

The first prayer that I reflected on was the following prayer by Cardinal Newman it a very down to earth but ture account of what God has in store for us.

So here it is

My Mission of Serving– Venerable John Henry Newman

“God has created me to do Him some definite service; He has committed some work to me which He has not committed to another. I have my mission — I never may know it in this life, but I shall be told it in the next. Somehow I am necessary for His purposes, as necessary in my place as an Archangel in His — if, indeed, I fail, He can raise another, as He could make the stones children of Abraham. Yet I have a part in this great work; I am a link in a chain, a bond of connection between persons. He has not created me for naught. I shall do good, I shall do His work; I shall be an angel of peace, a preacher of truth in my own place, while not intending it, if I do but keep his commandments and serve Him in my calling.

Therefore I will trust Him. Whatever, wherever I am, I can never be thrown away. If I am in sickness, my sickness may serve Him; in perplexity, my perplexity may serve Him; if I am in sorrow, my sorrow may serve him. My sickness, or perplexity, or my sorrow may be necessary causes of some great end, which is quite beyond us. He does nothing in vain; He may prolong my life, He may shorten it; He knows what He is about; He may take away my friends, He may throw me among strangers, He may make me feel desolate, make my spirits sink, hide the future from me-still He knows what He is about.”

My journey Starts roughly two years ago with a profound Easter. Where God was trying to knock but I would not let him in It then it dawned on me that he may be asking me to serve him as a nun so I chatted to a monk freind who gave me websites to look at but at that time I felt no that not the path to take so I did not .

At the same time my interest in new media began to grow and how it is used to spread the faith. Which may be linked again to my calling.  

I shall share more about it in my next
