It was a Saturday night and I was completely alone. I had cash in my pocket and gas in my truck but I had no friends anymore. The phone was not ringing. The silence was a deafening reminder to how ‘sad’ my social life had become in a very short amount of time. This had never happened to me in my previous three years of high school. My senior year was supposed to be epic! Instead it was growing increasingly lonely and there was only one person to blame: Jesus.
Change can be a good thing. You’ll learn and grow and learn some more. God may bring you places you never imagined you’d go. He may ask more of you than you think you’re capable of. Be open to new things. However, remember to stay true to what you believe in. Jesus is the “way and the truth” (John 14:6). Hold tight to the truth, and He’ll show you the way. You might be challenged to think outside the box or to get out of your Catholic bubble.
