Hey, my dear family in Lord Jesus, this is Cheyenne. I have asked a couple of wise sisters, Maggie, Ruth, and Grace, these questions I have wondered recently.....It is important to me and I know it is a hard question, but I want to know what you all think.
I have spoken to a Catholic priest recently, and he gave me advice in how I can speak to Jesus through prayer....He said:
-To take deep breaths,
-Pray to the Holy Spirit to guide you,
-Then imagine being in your favorite place (mine being Black Hill forests,
or the Northern seashore of white sand and jagged black rocks with a small foaming waterfall through them....like I dream Heaven may look like),
-Use all your senses to imagine this place,
-Then let Jesus in there, in this place in your heart where He lives,
-Then talk to Him and listen to the quiet voice of Him answering you and let Him comfort you.
I have done this several times during my time for prayer and feel much more relaxed....but I wonder.
I feel I do recieve answers from Jesus from the Sprit, but I worry if it is really Jesus answering me or it is me only thinking of what I want to hear....
I would have these thoughts flow after I would ask a question to Jesus: "Trust in your heart, I will show you the answer in time, Trust in me and you have pleased me, I will never leave you and you belong to me always"
. I have also felt the urge to immediately stop crying sometimes and even a cleansing and comforting feeling within me after I pray and cry to God. I would have those thoughts of "I have never left you, and never will" and "You have always been my child"
.....Do you think it is really the answers from Jesus, God, and the Holy Spirit, or am I making myself think these thoughts?
Is this the quiet voice of the Holy Spirit from my heart?
