I have rarely shared the vision for the same reason, not on here mind you as I have never been really attacked on this forum, however, TF and others I would be burnt at the stake.  I have an older retire Catholic Priest that is very forward-thinking I have shared them with and talked them through, so I do have that outlet and I have my spouse.

I would say I have discernment, but never realized that is what discernment can be or is

Mark, if you ever need to talk, you have been above reproach with me, I would be happy to listen.  Just throwing it out there.

Thank you, just trying to follow Jesus teaching in the Father's name as I understand.

I will be happy to chat anytime in private or otherwise.

I am curious how you both are defining discernment.
There are so many things that we as Christians need to have discernment about and often the LORD will show us exactly what that means. We shouldn't ignore it or be too afraid to face it. It may not be easy to endure. But we learn from it and we need to. Then we shouldn't keep silent about what we've learned but we should tell others about it.

There are times that we just need to laugh and cry at the same time...in relation to my visions, I was asked once to use that knowledge and I did as I was asked.  When speaking of what came from it, I was accused of living in search of what the vision was about...I was asked to do it, and when I did I was the problem yet again...Satan has no shortage of accusations against the "brethren" which is why encouragement is so vital to the true believers.

Encouragement can be in very short supply at times.

My first career was in the US Army.  Did and saw things that made me wonder about humankind.   My second career was working for USCIS, immigration if you will.  almost 20 yrs there after a 20 year Army Career.   In both of those careers, I had a ton of encouragement and support and people willing to talk to me. 

Now I say I am going to follow my faith in my third life's career and everything vanished for support, help, and encouragement.  It is like I became diseased or something.  My wife of course is supportive as far as her comfort level allows, my children all question me.  Some ask if I am dying and I am trying to make amends among many other questions of disbelief. 

The general consensus has been how can someone who has been and done what you have done in life just suddenly change course and be something we have never seen you exhibit?   My answer is you all never knew what was in the heart mind and soul.

Its amazing how the family looks at you (and me) with differing eyes..because, I suddenly changed course as well. The effects like your family have been pretty much the same...

1 Cor 15:3-4.."For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:"

Acts 17:11.."These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so."

For me, it is confusing Blade.   I can understand acquaintances and work friends being that way.  But direct family just caught me off guard about their reaction.   My youngest is trying.  He has spent time chatting and asking questions and being the intellect and stoic questioner of everything, he asks and tests his old man's knowledge and resolve.  But he is at least make some effort to find out more.

Interesting...I expect it more from family than the world....I guess experience has a lot to do with our perspectives and expectations.

Very true on experiences of life, it is related to life experiences and who we have had those with.   I guess I am just around a lot that just can not image I can change to the person I am become and embracing God.

Most of my family treats me as if I don't exist. I'm referring to brothers, sisters, cousins, aunts and uncles etc.

When my father was dying, we were called to the house.  I had to walk between all my siblings (3) plus their spouses to get to the only remaining chair.  It was still 30 to 45 minutes before anyone even acknowledged that I existed and that came from my mother.  The sad part is that I felt blessed on that day that no one even bothered.

I never see or hear from most of my family. But maybe it's best that way. They abandoned me when I needed them the most. I don't need them now.
