You need a retreat of peace and quiet where periodically you can ponder and let the Lord establish the direction of your life. It may seem difficult to find time to meditate with the daily pressures of life. Yet a moment of thought will confirm that no matter how fast you move forward, if you are on the wrong path, it will avail you nothing. Each of us needs to periodically check our bearings and confirm that we are on course.
Elder Richard G. Scott, "To Acquire Knowledge and the Strength to Use It Wisely", Ensign, June 2002
As General Conference approaches and we get to hear directly from Heavenly Father through the prophet, apostles, and other leaders, let's pay attention to any thoughts and feelings as we listen. That's Heavenly Father talking directly to us. Write those thoughts, feelings, and impressions down.
Then, retreat to a place of quiet and pray to Heavenly Father about what was written down. Ask Him for direction. Then, when a plan is in place, ask Him again if that's the correct way forward.
Then, something I tend to forget, is offering a prayer of gratitude that I heard Him speaking to me in the first place, and that He loved me enough to direct me.
We are not left to roam this life on our own. He did not and does not leave us wandering aimlessly or to wherever our whims take us. He provides guidance, direction, and most times that requires change on our part. But... He provides us a Liahona to tell us which way to go.
All we have to do is listen and then go that way.
