That I may attend with Wisdom

Guys:

I have for months had a long, protracted issue of faith. Without going into it (it's not my dirty laundry alone to air), some has to do with interpersonal relationships, some with institutions and some with my ongoing spiritual evolution (maturity? Maybe?).

I've sort of been able to kick the can down the road for a while, but it looks like the can is about to acquire enough mass that it's going to break toes.

Since next week is Holy Week in our church, please pray for me to find wisdom as I travel down the Jerusalem road, carry the cross and enter the tomb with Christ so that I might be able to stand Pascha morning and celebrate the Resurrection without this weight on my shoulders.

-V

Lord have mercy!

May the Lord God remember you in His Kingdom, brother. I'll remember you this week.

Pascha is just around the corner!

The tree of Eden once caused bitterness,
But the Tree of the Cross made sweetness of life to blossom!
In tasting the first, Adam fell into to corruption,
But as we eat the Body of Christ we are given life and mystically deified,
Receiving God's eternal Kingdom.
Therefore we cry out in faith:
Glory to Your suffering, Lord!

May God grant you grace and peace, friend.

I am not entirely sure what you are going through, but my prayers are with you during this time.

So I have not found a clear answer, but in the dark night of the soul I had an epiphany about how my approach to praying for the situation was fundamentally wrong, and realizing how I should pray for it has given me an attendant peace.
