Do Not Fear, Only Believe!

Discernment begins with an honest, humble heart, ready to seek and listen to God’s voice, regardless of societal expectations or personal fears.

Who then is this?

Our vocation is just like the disciple’s journey in the boat. Jesus has invited you on a journey with Him … How have you come to know who Jesus is through past storms in your life? How about current ones?

What is discernment?

Genuine “discernment” is not about trying to make God fit into my way of seeing things.  It’s about being open to seeing things as God sees them.
