Discerning Out In The Thicket

    • Christianity

Have you ever had the experience of being called to something and had Jesus call you away from it? The answer is probably yes, but one of the hardest places this can happen in with respect to vocations. It's not that uncommon...and it's even a very healthy sign...for men or women to "discern out" of the seminary or consecrated life.
Julius Balita (@jbalita) is our guest this week, and he shares about his experience as a seminarian, and what it was like to have Jesus reveal to him that his vocation is not to the priesthood. We talk about how gently Jesus is able to reveal His will for us, and what a great mercy this is, because it can be incredibly hard at best and crushing at worst to find that we aren't called to something that we know is incredibly good. This conversation was such a blessing to us because Julius' journey at its heart is really about what it truly means to trust God with everything!
