Sunday, July 19th
What an awe-inspiring faith-filled spirit-filled weekend! The Franciscan Youth Conferences just get better every year. The teens continue to be more open to receiving the Holy Spirit. My teens of course are amazing. And, I am so incredibly blessed to be with them at the parish! I would not have it any other way.
These last two months have been ones of deep prayer. of continual prayer. of sustaining prayer. it has not been easy. there have been a few sleepless nights. a few nights of me crying myself to sleep. but I want it no other way. The only way is thru Jesus. For He is the Way, the Truth, and the Life!
I am at peace with my decision involving a long-time friend. I have been at peace for a long while. I trust in God's infinite plan.
I am patiently waiting. Our novena begins Sept 8th on the Our Lady's birthday! and continues for nine novenas until November 27th. So far, its me, SS, MG, JS, and L.S. I hope that I am not forgetting anyone. The guys I invited to be a part of this still have not responded. Our Lord will provide our other 4 pray-ers. We will storm heaven together united in Christ's love.
God is sooooo good and faithful and merciful and rich in kindness and grace.
Praise be to the Lord Almighty, the King of Kings, the Lord of Lords. Jesus is the Lion of Judah. We shall want for nothing more!
Jesus pointed out numerous times this weekend that I really do love intercessory prayer. I kind of threw it out the window last July. His LOVE, His Spirit now consumes my soul. I surrender unto Him ALL of me. My hands, my feet, my lips, my toes, my mouth, my nose. For everything has been such a great gift! Jesus!
