Here I am, Lord
Here I am, awake since 4 o'clock this morning, thinking, praying.
Last night was a milestone. I have been talking to Father R about vocation. Last night, he brought it up to the vestry. Their response was largely enthusiastic.
Many seemed to be expecting it. Or at least expecting something -- a discussion about either the diaconate or the priesthood. I've been hearing priesthood. This has been going on for a good five years. Now, I've been hearing 'NOW.' So, the discussions with Father R and going public.
Now, the tough stuff starts, that whole discernment process. Whether the diocese and a parish discernment committee will hear the same call for me remains to be seen.
It's in God's hands. All I can do is be obedient, and pray for the right outcome. I will go wherever God wants me. Or stay.
Keep me in your prayers.
