For me it's the time I year where I look again at my commitments and decide where I want to continue and where it's time to part ways.
Just this afternoon one of those paths was made clear for me by means of low enrollment. Easy peasy. Decision done.
Not all paths and choices are quite so simple.
I used to think if discernment as a front loaded process where if you prayed and worked hard looking at the options and made a decision you were good. Discernment complete.
Yet as I move into more and more where I believe God is leading me I'm beginning to understand and experience how discernment isn't typically quite so definitive - it's not a closed case after the decision's been made many times, with few exceptions. It's feels more like living in the act of discerning rather than seeing discernment as simply choice making.
Discernment is choice making, and more.
Thank you for reading. :)
What choices are you making?
How have you understood discernment?
