On Monday evening of this week, I received an email letting me know that I’ve been recommended to continue as an Aspirancy in the Diaconate. I am experiencing so many emotions but most of all, I am happy and honored that God would consider choosing a fool, a sinner like me for this process but as the saying goes, and I believe it wholeheartedly, “Jesus, I trust in you.”
So now, a new journey begins. A journey into becoming a Permanent Deacon. I realize that I am very rough around the edges and that at times I can be more terse than I like however, Jesus has the sandpaper or more like a grinder lol to smooth out those rough edges of mine and through his grace, I continue to work towards becoming a better Christian, a better follower and example of Christ. As I continue my walk with him day by day, I pray that He will continue to send the Holy Spirit down upon me to guide me in every direction of this discernment process. I ask that you please pray for my bride as well because she is going through the process with me and is a big part of my becoming a Deacon God willing.
Thank you for your prayers and know that I’ll be praying for you as well. Let the journey begin!
