Where are you going?

Do you know how to get there?

Here are four simple steps to help you find direction in your life:

  • First, pray for direction, spend time in a quite place.

  • Talk with others, consider your gifts, seek direction from your pastor or priest, a parent, or a spiritual guide.

  • Listen to your feelings - do you know where you find discomfort, or what brings you discouragement? Where do you find satisfaction? What gives you energy for living? What brings you peace and joy?

  • Above all, trust in who you are and know that God loves you and wants the best for you.

    For me prayer is an aspiration of the heart,
    it is a simple glance directed to heaven,
    it is a cry of gratitude and love in the midst of trial
    as well as joy.
    Finally, it is something…. Which expands my soul
    And unites me to Jesus.
