The Youth & Young Adult of St. Monica


The Move

We ask God for a lot. Think about some of your recent prayer requests. Maybe something like: “God, I know I didn’t study for this test, but can you help me do well?” or “God, I know that girl/boy doesn’t even know I exist, but can we go to prom together?” We ask some really big things of Him, but He also asks really big things of us.

Two years ago, I was living in California. I could get to the beach in less than 10 minutes, and life was good. But God decided to ask something big of me… and not just of me, but of my new bride. Despite never having lived anywhere else, He called us to Texas. He called me to St. Monica. Even though it was scary, I said, “yes,” and we moved two months after getting married. In that moment, even though it was hard, I trusted Him. I had to. Do you?
