Something to think and pray about this week
Discernment requires us to connect instead with the feelings that develop at a deeper level of experience: the level that is the emotional foundation or source of life, the level of our interiority. This is where you find feelings that do not change all the time. They are much less likely to be manipulated; they last longer, do not depend on hormones or the weather and say something about what is really important to you. They are usually not very intense which is why they are often less easy to spot. However, because of their longer duration, their impact and importance are great This emotional foundation says something about the truth of your life. Interiority is the place where Christians believe they can hear the voice of God.
