Thank you from my heart for this kind words that bring only joy in my heart,I have many ups and downs in my discerning but finally i have found piece in my heart.Before i have never think that i will be here on the edge of entering of religious life.I have thinking it only perriod and it will pass and soon i will have big family and devoted husband.But life end up rare in according to our plans,When you open your heart and when you ask grace.

Still i have great fear about future and adjusting in new life also i wondering my self i'm worth it to become Carmel one day.It is something beyond me.

 

Dear Carla,

If you read in the Bible, you will hear God repeats many times (someone said it is 365 times): Do not be afraid.  It is human nature to have fear but don't let fear paralyze you because you have Christ who always goes before you. I love this prayer from St. Francis de Sales below.  I wish you all the best and do know you are very dearly in the nuns' prayers.

Do not look forward in fear to the changes in life;
rather, look to them with full hope that as they arise,
God, whose very own you are,
will lead you safely through all things;
and when you cannot stand it,
God will carry you in His arms.

Do not fear what may happen tomorrow;
the same understanding Father who cares for
you today will take care of you then and every day.

He will either shield you from suffering
or will give you unfailing strength to bear it.
Be at peace,
and put aside all anxious thoughts and imaginations.

Your posts have always been so kind and so loving. I am sure that God will continue to bless you and your family as you look forward to life in Carmel,

Lily

Carla, congratulations and blessings!  Does this Carmel have a website or other place where we might be able to read more about it? Where, exactly, is it located? May your continued journey be happy, prayerful, and joy-filled. This is wonderful news.
