Get Out of Your Own Head

1. Live a life of holiness:  If you want to know how God is calling you, living a sacramental life of grace is very important.  If you’re not praying every day or not going to confession regularly, you won’t be able to hear what God is saying to you.

2. Get advice: Talk to a spiritual leader who knows about discernment.  We want to make sure we’re not just discerning on our own otherwise we can get trapped in our own thoughts.

3. Act: Discernment eventually requires action.  We can’t sit on the fence forever but need to do something that leads us to making a decision. Think about going on a seminary visit or talking to your diocese’s Vocation Director.
