it all came down to time-manage-ment—something that continues to
be a struggle for me. I am glad my
parents helped me honestly address
those existential questions of what is
my heart’s desire and what will give
me joy. I didn’t want to drop out,
I just needed to get all my papers
written, which I did—five 10-page
papers over Thanksgiving weekend!
But it came at the cost of missing out
on turkey dinner with the family.
In GOD'S name,
Invite God to weigh in
and live HOSPITALITY
Far and away the most essential step
among the many steps available to us
for making informed and wise decisions is the need to invite God into
the conversation—before, during,
and after every choice we make.
With each prayerful request for

and bring us guidance, we sharpen
our skills in the art of discernment.

Following Jesus’ advice becomes sec-
ond nature: “Ask, and it will be given
you; seek, and you will find; knock,
and it will be opened to you” (Matt.
7: 7). No matter the question: what to
study, where to work, how to serve,
who to love, what to commit to, who
to vote for, what to fight for, through
the practice of discernment you will
know to bring your request to God
to find clarity and peace in your
decisions. And the more you invite
God in, the more you will have confidence that the answers will come
and your choices will be well made.
In whatever unique way we
make the choices that shape who we
are, we all have one underlying de-
sire: to live joyful lives and be loved
now and forever by the one who
calls us to love—our loving God. Or
kicking it old-school: Our goal is to
get to heaven! =
