The other day Chris Aubuchon forwarded an email to all of the Jeff City Seminarians at Conception, the email contained the lyrics to a song that applies to discernment. I really liked the song, so I thought I would share it here on the blog.

What it Feels Like (to be led)
Jeromy Deibler

So this is what it feels like to walk the wilderness
This is what it feels like to come undone
This is what it feels like to lose my confidence
Unsure of anything or anyone

So this is what it feels like to walk the desert sand
This is what it feels like to hear my name
To be scared to death ‘cause I’m all alone
But feel love and peace just the same

This may not be the road I would choose for me
But it still feels right somehow
‘Cause I have never felt You as close to me
As I do right now
So this is what it feels like to be led

So this is what it feels like to just fall apart
To be totally unglued
Find out that if I accept my brokenness
I get more of me, I get all of You

Chorus

So this is what it feels like to just walk away
From everything I though kept me safe
To depend just on you for every meal
And find that it’s better this way

Chorus


Another one of my favorite Christian songs that relates to discernment is “Trust You” by Brandon Heath. In fact this song has a small role in my vocation story along the way to seminary.

Trust You

Brandon Heath

I can’t walk without watching where I’m going
I can’t speak without knowing what to say
I can’t love and have any hesitation
Cause I know that you don’t work that way

I can’t reach without something to offer
I can’t come now I am so ashamed
I can’t hold out from you any longer
Cause I know that you don’t work that way

I’m not gonna fight you anymore
Not gonna try to lock the door
You took your life and gave me yours
There’s no reason why
I shouldn’t trust you with mine

It’s never easy changing my direction
It’s so unnatural to loosen up my grip
Are you growing weary of all my good intentions
Cause I know that You don’t work that way

Chorus

Some days
This wait upon my shoulder
Is my shame
I know I should know better
Cause you say
That I must now surrender
There’s no other way

Whatever your vocation may be, make sure that you not only listen to these songs, but more importantly, PRAY that God may show you your vocation.
