Step 9 of the Ignatian method—In this step, picture yourself before the throne of God on judgment day. Will all the work you did in coming to this decision confirm your conscientiousness in wanting your will to be in harmony with God’s will in this regard? Or will you realize that you were trying to cheat yourself by bringing up silly reasons not to choose the vocation which, in the deepest, quiet part of your being, God is nudging you. If true, start the discernment process from the beginning and ask to sincerely be seeking God’s will, not your own or someone else’s.
