I've mentioned before that many times God kicks me in the head, so to speak, about what I am supposed to be doing and focusing on. Are they usually easy things? Ummm, absolutely not. These things have consequences including dealing with upset family, losing friends, canceling a wedding, being threatened, mocked, and other craptastic things.
And now? Randomly (random in my mind, not to God of course) reconnecting my friend and I after about a 5 year absence of contact. Realizing this friend is enslaved to some major sin, and now God prompting me to do something about it.
Tonight, a series of events took place that blew my mind.
First, I am prompted to teach PSR at Cletus this year. I am beginning to become friends with one of the teachers. Said teacher randomly invites me to XLT tonight at Cletus. The talk at Cletus was like God crafted the information to speak directly to my heart about my friend. Because of said talk and Eucharistic Adoration, I am renewed and strengthened to pray and talk to my friend.
Amazing Love. Poured out for me and all. God's love has no boundaries, and I am to share that love with my friend, even if I am mocked, persecuted, or whatever.
I think one of the hardest things is that I don't know what God's Will is in all of this. I could pray until the cows come home, and perhaps I won't see any change in him. All I know is that this will change me and carve my heart a little closer to God.
Pray for me. Pray for my friend. Pray that God's Will be done.
