Uncomfortable

Today is the first of 12 preliminary Days that begins my renewal of Total Consecration to Jesus, through Mary for Families.  This spiritual journey does not start off easy and then gradually get more intense, it's intense from the very beginning.

The first thing I read this morning was, "Ask the Holy Spirit for the grace to break with everything that displeases God and to become a person for others in imitation of the Holy Family."

Wow. 

I want to.  But it's hard to gather the courage to ask.  I'm afraid of what God will require of me.

I pray that along this road, I can find it within me to truly seek to break from EVERYTHING that displeases God.

I just finished the Consecration. It is rough, but so worth it. (I know you know that, just saying :)

Sometimes I feel the same way. I'm afraid of what God will ask. It's about trust and I'm not very good with that..I'll keep you in my prayers.
