Is God Talking to Me?
Fr. John and Dan talk about how we can discern if we are actually hearing from God or just listening to our own thoughts.
Father John Bartunek and Dan Burke discuss how we understand if we are really engaging with God, or if it is just our own imagination … or, perhaps, something worse? God is always drawing close to us. Any time we raise our hearts and mind to prayer, He is listening and responds, even if we do not sense it or understand His response. Father John lists and elaborated on the three ways God usually speaks to us in our time of prayer: consolation, felt presence, or insight; through the Holy Spirit’s gifts; through very specific good inspirations. Dan emphasizes how God is the author of good, and how important it is to respond to God, how we train ourselves for more.
