Following God's Call

"Rest Easy.  Your reservation has been confirmed."  Coming across this saying led me to reflect upon my ministry at the Divine Mercy House, a Christian maternity home for single expectant women.

I remember being asked “what kind of ministry interests you?”  My first thought was “women and children,” I didn’t know in what role or area.  I knew trusting in God, all would come to light when it was time.   How did I know this? It is trusting in God that led me to enter Religious Life.

When I read Jesus’ call to Matthew “Follow me” (Mt 9:9-13), I think of my vocation call.  I, like Matthew, didn’t know where this would lead.  In  time, I learned to be patient and to trust…God will provide the confirmation you are where Jesus has called you to be.

I have been called and blessed to journey with, single women who have chosen life for their baby and need help during this sacred time of life.  I wish I could say I found my ministry, but it found me.  Just as my ministry has been confirmed, so has my call to Religious life.    How have you responded to Jesus invitation “Follow me”?
