Deciding Between Truth and Error

Good Sunday evening to you! This edition of your Weekly Winning Resource is all about the word discern. If there has ever been a time in our lives we need to use good discernment, it is now. The year 2020 has brought many things for us to discern, to say the least. By definition, to discern means to see, recognize, or understand something that is not clear, or in its simplest form, the ability to decide between truth and error. Joe Paprocki says, “discernment is an interior search that seeks to align our will with that of God so that we know what He is calling us to. At I’ve Decided, we believe you were born with a unique purpose to achieve here on earth, and we believe to discern what that is, starts with you being the best version of yourself that you can be. Being the best version of you, allows you to get clear of your unique gifts and talents. It allows you to see what you are capable of and it opens your heart to strive for excellence. Discernment is on-going. You must constantly evaluate the decisions you have made. If the outcomes – your words, actions, behaviors, results, are good, it’s an indication you’re discernment was good. If the outcomes are poor, then you may need to alter your decision. The most important thing you can do for discernment is to pray. There is a God of the universe who loves you, created you, and desires for you to accomplish what you were born for. He will help you if you ask.
