When divine guidance is loud and clear
Originally appeared on spirituality.com
I spend a lot of time doing creative work: writing essays, short stories, and poems, and writing and practicing songs. When I try to decide which project to undertake next, if I’m not immediately motivated in one direction, I give careful consideration to which project to commit to. I pray to know in which direction God wants me to go. I try to be ready to hear God’s guidance.
As I’m praying, I’m sometimes reminded of an experience I had when I heard God’s direction clearly and distinctly.
Years ago, my wife, Laura, and I left our small daughters with my cousin and drove our old green pickup trick up Bourne Road out of Sumpter, Oregon, for a rare outing, just to see the country. Laura said later that she felt motivated to pray for our safety, for the safety of our daughters, for God’s ever-present protection and expression of harmony.
