Do you ever feel that tug at your heart?
Do you ever have that coincidence that you can’t explain? Do you ever say, “Wow, that was Divine Intervention!”
God is calling you…
These are frequent questions people have… but how do I pray? How can I have a relationship with Jesus? How do I start?
Let me tell you my story. I thought I was a “good” Catholic. I was going to church, going through the motions. My life was wonderful, loving husband, healthy kids and I’d often say, “When’s the shoe going to drop?” I realized how immensely blessed I was, so I started to increase my prayer life. I tried to say a daily rosary, weekly mass, frequent confession and occasionally going to adoration, and also doing works of charity. It felt good.
What I didn’t realize was that Jesus was calling me to a deeper relationship to help get me through a very difficult upcoming phase in our lives. The shoe did drop and things became clear, He was with me. I saw Him everywhere during this difficult time. This suffering helped me see how He walks with us during our struggles. I now go to just spend time with Him like a best friend. I go adore Him in the Blessed Sacrament. I go and tell Him how much I appreciate Him, how grateful I am and how much I love Him.
Start small if you haven’t been to Eucharistic Adoration. Come for 5 minutes, then 10, make it a weekly priority.
You can bring a Catholic book, pray a rosary or even bring work you are going to do at home anyways! Just come and sit with Jesus. I promise the graces He will give you will far exceed your expectations.
Don’t wait for the shoe to drop to need Him, He is calling you, Come Adore Him!
