Consecration in Practice

Discernment means living life prayerfully—bringing oneself to God as honestly and completely as possible, seeking God’s guidance as openly as possible, and then, in faith, responding as fully as possible. A life lived this way, trying to bring all one’s faculties into harmony with God’s transforming grace, is consecration in practice. ~ May, Gerald G.

Discernment. Not a word heard often.
The ability to judge well.
But more to the point, perception
in the absence of judgment
with a view to obtaining
spiritual guidance and understanding.
Carrying the Latin meaning
to separate, divide, distinguish, discern.
In harmony with God.
Consecration in practice.
