Shut Yo' Mouth and Listen!

This is going to be a quick post.

I should be writing my essay and studying for my last final, but I couldn't help start my blog!  Yes... irresponsibility and procrastination are my worst imperfections.

I have been discerning for four years and am ready to move forward.  Discerning what you may ask?  Like any good Catholic, I have been discerning whether God is calling me to Religious life as a consecrated sister or nun.  Isn't a consecrated sister a nun?  Well technically, a nun is cloistered and a consecrated sister is one who is working in the world as a missionary, teacher, 
etc.  

Well I heard my call last year.  What did it take?  It took God just slapping me in the face and getting me to pay attention to the many ways He was talking to me.  I was so humbled and touched to know that God did want me to enter a religious community and continue my discernment there.  I started to tear up and praise God for this opportunity.  The only problem now is graduating, paying off my debts, and finding the order that I want to enter.  That takes more listening to God's whispers.  In a world where we always have our headphones in our ears, the news on t.v., or a random song in our head, it's rather difficult to listen to these whispers.  Also with so much to do, we forget to pray!  I haven't been good at keeping my weekly Holy Hours.  I need to work on separating deliberate prayer time.  We can make everything a prayer, yes, but we need to honor God in a special way every day!

More later...

Thanks for stopping by my blog! I'm so excited to see another young person, especially a young woman, discern a vocation as a consecrated in a day where this is seen as a "waste of life" or something. Also, congrats on the new blog! It looks like it's going to be good! I'll add you to my links!

God Bless!
