Alison Posted March 24 Share Posted March 24 Okay y’all, if you struggle with trusting in God’s love for you this might not be the post for you to read. Hello all, I have realized that the thought of being married disturbs me, because the Church does teach that consecrated life is a higher state than marriage. I hear all these things about how consecrated souls give their "whole selves" to God and serve Him with an "undivided heart". I become sad when I think God’s plan for my life may be marriage, because I want to love Him with my whole heart and give Him everything. I don’t want the leftovers of His love, I don’t want to feel like I’m on the back burner and not as loved by Him. I get so confused though because the Bible clearly teaches we’re all supposed to love God with our whole hearts. I just want union and intimacy with the Lord, I want to love nothing but Him or for His sake, I want to be a saint…but I also feel like my vocation might well be marriage and I’m so confused about it all. Like I know there are married saints who were very close to God but I’m confused helppppppppp I feel like I’m getting something wrong here, but I just don’t know what so I figured I’d ask others for input on all this.
