I’ve started my journey to becoming a member of the Catholic Church. I don’t know everything that’s in store for me, but I do know that this is the direction I feel led by the Spirit. When I attended my first Mass last Saturday, even though I was a little confused at the beginning, I felt a sense of peace sweep over me. When I attended my first Bible study there yesterday, I felt that sense of peace return. I look forward to what lies ahead on this journey for me.
I’m very close to being invited to become a Twitch Affiliate, but I need your help! I need an average of three viewers per stream on my channel to complete the requirements to be invited, but now I’m averaging less than one. Would you be willing to come and watch? You can just lurk in the channel, you don’t need to chat with me if you don’t want to (though I’d be happy to chat with you).
Darkness comes. In the middle of it, the future looks blank. The temptation to quit is huge. Don’t. You are in good company… You will argue with yourself that there is no way forward. But with God, nothing is impossible. He has more ropes and ladders and tunnels out of pits than you can conceive. Wait. Pray without ceasing. Hope.
Don’t edge if you are trying to break free of addiction – it leads to relapse! Trust me on this as it happened to me this morning, and if it happened to me, it will happen to you as well!
It looks like to me that I will be taking a lot of Sunday afternoon naps as I I will be working a fair number of Saturday night shifts at work. I go to church Sunday mornings so if I don’t take the naps, I will be very tired for my shifts on Sunday night. I am not happy about this change to my schedule but there is little or nothing I can do to change it.
The Beauty of Love
James 1:17 says:
Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.
Once again, I’m attempting to turn my life around and break the chains that sin has on my life. I know it won’t be easy (if this isn’t the latest attempt isn’t proof enough, what is?) but I know it is something I must do. I’m not doing this because it is the popular thing to do but because it is the right thing for me to do. Some may scoff at me and say I’m just doing it for some reason like money but to me, my spiritual life is the most important thing that I have. Money may be important but it pales in comparison to where my soul will live for eternity after this body’s death and what I do on earth will influence what that will be like.
I urge you to take a look at your life-like I have and ask yourself “Is this the direction I want my life to travel, and if not what must I do to change the direction I am heading?” I’ll happily talk with anyone who wants to and tell you about the One who wants to be your Lord and Saviour who I have chosen to give my life fully to. 😀
