How will I know?
I am in the midst of a deeply soul-searching quest for Christian understanding. I am praying as well as I know how, praising and asking for guidance. I am reading the Bible, beginning with the New Testament (I've studied my way up through Romans.)
I am trying to see the moments of my life as being guided and in service of God through the lessons and example of Jesus Christ.
How will I know if I am truly born again in Christ? How will I know of the Spirit is moving within and through me?
An odd aspect of this is that I have been feeling great loneliness as that God-shaped hole within me seems to remain unfilled. Is this normal?
Do I sound desperate enough?
