From a Creighton Student's Perspective

In recent years, it seems everyone is saying, "Faith is a journey" insinuating it can get tough along the way. But no matter how many times we hear this, we don't truly understand its meaning until we reach that point. The point where the bottom falls out and we are left to our own devices since we reached this point by choosing to be alone. For some time, we decided to take matters in our own hands and not fully trust in Him. Usually, it is at this moment in someone's life that we become like Esther, asking for God's guidance and saving grace just as Jesus asks us to in the gospel. I find it very fitting this reading is available to us as Creighton students are experiencing "midterms". The time in which students are loaded with tests, preparing for spring break, drama, and on top of that class-work too. It is usually in this time that we channel our inner Esther and beg for God's help to rescue us. In these times of need, this is a great solution. But what would happen if we ask help before we get to that point?
