    Pray about it...then make your best guess. If one is actively seeking God's will...they will be operating 'within God's will'.

    I make my own choices and then seek confirmation and if God wants me to do something else ill do that. Sometimes you have to think things out before you find out what God wants in the matter. Sometimes God doesn't care what we do about some things like whether we have spaghetti or maceroni for dinner.

    I'm not sure but I do think that real life consequences can be used to guage the appropriateness of our actions and directions. After that I guess we get a final report card or something. ( I know for sure that I have a few "tardies" on there) :)

    I honestly believe that my future is in the United States Armed Services. I can't think of anything else I could truly be happy with, nor cn I picture myself doing anything else. Im pretty thankful that I know what to set my sights on now...it helps.

    Prayer and meditation.

    Prayer is talking to God. Meditation is listening to Him.
