How Do I Know I Am Doing The Will of God?

How do I know I am doing the will of God?

Let me share my process in case it can help you. 

I am a big believer in affirmations. 

I jot down single sentence statements. 

These statements are goals I want to accomplish in these areas:

-Mental health 

-Physical health 

-Spiritual health 





Here is where I bring in my Centering Prayer practice.

I read them before each sit. 

Then let them go to God. 

During Centering Prayer God prays in me the actions I am to take. 

I trust God. 

I then get up from my sit and partner with God on these items. 

Let me also share my barometer of what should stay as an affirmation. 

-It must excite me. 

-It is allowed to be outside of my comfort zone. That is how I grow. 

-I have an inner peace about it. 

-It does not harm me or others. 

As long as it passes my barometer I take action. 

I also tweak my affirmations or remove them if they do not pass my barometer. 

I do this whenever needed. 

Clarity comes with action. 

I only need to know the next step. 

The path will become clear as I keep taking action. 

Centering Prayer is vital to this whole process! 

I constantly connect to my true self during my sits. 

This is a true self journey with no end point.

Sacred Spaces: Contemplation and the Celtic Spirit

I found the best way to listen to this primer on Celtic Christianity was while I took my daily walk.

Three of the sections deal with the work of ancient and medieval spiritual teachers.

I particularly liked this retreat because a whole section was devoted to the Cloud of Unknowing. Centering Prayer is dear to my heart!

This course is very reasonably priced for the LARGE volume of information it shares: 30 videos, PDF attachments and links to resources.

I encourage you to check out this wonderful course by Justin Coutts.
