In what ways is God calling you to a new path in your life?
Finish the following sentence: God is calling me to . . .
Sit quietly for a few minutes and then write down anything that comes into your thoughts, no matter how trivial, how foolish, how exciting, or how frightening.
Don’t judge the validity of the thought; just write it down.
Now reflect on what you’ve written. What do you think God is telling you?

Dealing with Distractions
Sometimes the very places we think are quiet spaces and ideal places to spend time with God are actually very distracting. Does the floor make odd noises at every motion or does traffic outside your home persist? Try doing something to distract your attention such as humming, listening to loud music, walking while you think, or listening to a constant sound such as white or pink noise. The consistent motion or action may prove to be just what you need to help you focus on the task of listening to God calling for your attention. – Linda Furtado
