After morning prayer i will continue with my story.

 

As i told before my friends faith has been very strong.She know from beginning what is her path in life.Last year she visit me on my collage.She told me the news that she will enter the convent in several months.I have felt then so mixed emotions.I have been proud and sad at the same time and i was struck by the bravery of her vocation, and realized I needed to do something about mine life.I have realize that i love to study my collage,but that collage lifestyle made me empty and it move me from my faith and my path with Jesus.Boyfriends ,Facebook going out it move me from real me.I need to change my life.At first i have been very scared on thinking about my religious life.I give my self time to pass to be sure that my friends decision it is not only reason to consider religious life.I come beck to church group.I have attend masses more offen.I have talk with my priest first ,even before my family.I have feel joy in my heart again after long time.

At the end of last year i have realize that my feeling are geting stronger and stronger.I have decide that i need to talk with my family.One Sunday after mass i have gather then all.And tell them that i will spend this year in searching if i have true vocation.I made my mother to cry.She has been sad and so happy like every mother in that moment.She is knowing that i will give up a lot and that i will change my lifestyle

dramatically.But she is so happy about my possibly vocation.

Wow. Thanks Carla for sharing your vocations story! I'm a bit tempted to do the same and post my story here :P

Janet it will be wonderful that you share your experience with us.

 

Tonight i will like to share some thinking about recent happening in my life.I will like to hear thinking of the girls who is also discerning vocation life.

In past months i have decided that i will take my possible vocation much more serious.When i have decided that i need to change my life habits.

First i have closed my Facebook account ( i have spend to much time there). Also i have decided to change my clothes habits.I have started wearing

more appropriate clothes to get used for my possible postulate outfit.Also i have cut my time spending on internet.I have stooped with going out and spending to much time with friends.Of course the most important part is my religious life.I have start daily meditation and praying.I'm going to every holy mass and soon i hope so i will get my vocation director.Also i have stared with reading few of beautiful books.I will like in this tops that we can share this similar feelings.For me to be honest this changes not have been easy.But my strong faith of my vocation give me power to pray harder to found my answers.

 

Thank you and God bless you all
