Running to Catch up

It is now almost 11 years since I became a Christian and from the beginning I have always felt that I was running to catch up!

Because I had no church background when I did start going to church it took a long time to get used to the services.

I also had a bit of a false idea of what other Christians got up to. I thought that everyone had read the bible all the way through several times and spent lots of time in prayer every day.

I am glad that I did have this false impression as it encouraged me to dive into the bible and prayer in a big way because I thought it was “normal”.

I am not claiming that I have always been perfect in spending time in the word and in prayer but it gave me a high standard to strive for.

Over time I gradually realised that what I was trying to achieve was not necessarily “normal”, but it was still what I wanted to aim for.

However, here I am back at the beginning again, on the path to being received into the Catholic church.

Many things are different, services, prayer practices, the way people have fellowship and generally the way things are done, as well as the additional things such as devotion to Mary.

It’s a good job that I have a good coach in Jesus….
