Whether you turn to the right or to the left, your ears will hear a voice behind you, saying, ‘This is the way; walk in it.’ [Isaiah 30.21]
The heart of discernment is listening. Listening for God’s voice is a 24/7 job. The language God uses to speak with us is not always written in an alphabet that we readily recognize. God speaks through darkness, confusion, and experiences which challenge us as well as in peace, joy, and certitude. The bottom line is that we can trust God is speaking no matter where we are or which way we turn.
