Experiencing the Peace of Doing God’s Will

So I’m used to freaking out about my life every other day and worrying about what God wants me to do.  Lately a feeling of supreme peace has permeated my life and it was strange at first.  I was so used to stubbornly fighting God that when I finally surrendered to His will a foreign calm entered my heart.  It is a wonderfully freeing feeling and He longs for all of His children to experience it.

Over a week ago, I spent almost six hours being interviewed by two of the TOR Sisters.  I was nervous going into it but soon realized it was really just a conversation about my journey so far and the charisms of the community.  I just reveled in the chance to spend time with them again.

Tomorrow is their formation board meeting in which they will discuss the interviews and whether I am a good fit for their community.  I should be hearing from the vocation director after they make their decision and she will tell me if I can move onto the next step.  I am excited, but calmly and prayerfully waiting to see what the Lord has in store for me.

  1. Just “let go and let God”! The same advice you gave me last year over all of the decisions I was trying to make, when all I needed to do was just let God be in control, which does leave you with a sense of peace. ❤ you V!
