Discerning God's Message
The central focus of our faith is the belief that God has entered into
conversation with us. The challenge is to be open to what God is
trying to say to us. That is not always easy because we are bombarded
with messages from many sources. Is it the voice of tradition or
culture around us, rather than an authentic word from God? Determining
that requires us to develop a stronger sense of spirituality. The
deeper we go on our own spiritual search, the easier it is to hear
the divine message. This search involves a lifetime commitment. The
joy of the journey into the mind of God is that more and more we
discover what God wants us to do with our lives. We are being addressed.
God is waiting for our response.
