How does God guide us?

Br. Philip Pinto took a session with the staff of St. Columba’s on the 6th of March. A very enriching session which encouraged everyone to do self reflection.

Can I Know God’s Will for My Life?

If we take this broad view of God “speaking” then we can say that God wants all of us to live in a conversational relationship with him. Brother touched on how ‘if we allowed our hearts to remain open...plenty happens’.

The content or meaning of his (God’s) detailed and individualized communications to us always finally takes the form of the inner voice, a characteristic type of thought or perception.

We can ‘notice’ God - His beauty and love, and wonderful works - all around us.

To hear the thoughts that God impresses into our minds is not automatic - we must learn to hear God’s voice by effort and experimentation in the course of our normal daily life.

Each of us needs to learn from personal experience what it means to hear God given our unique background, personality, and life situation. The way that you hear God is likely to be somewhat different from how I hear God.

Hearing God’s voice and sensing his guidance can be part of our normal lives.
“Lord, I want your will, your way, your time...”

“What we do with our hearts affects the whole Universe”

Br. Pinto concluded the session by leaving us with thoughts “what are we doing that is relevant for 21st century!!”
