Yesterday I walked past a city church building and I noticed the sign advertising times for their worship services. A lot of churches have them, but what caught my attention about this one was that it represented the body of Christ from three different continents. There were Sudanese and Chinese worship services along with English services. Three distinctly different expressions of Christ’s bride the church, worshipping in the same place.
I love that.
“I love that too” was the whispered response.
Perhaps I shouldn’t have been surprised, but I was. I forget that God really is always with me, and that he’s listening; even to my silent thoughts.
So I’m starting this 31 Days to Listen with a reminder to myself, and to all of us, that God listens to us.
I love the Lord because he hears my voice
and my prayer for mercy.
Because he bends down to listen,
I will pray as long as I have breath!
He bends down to listen. I love that image.
Do you need to know that He hears your voice, that He listens for you?

I’ll be here to listen w you. this inspires me to do my own focused listening and writing what I hear but In my journal primarily. I am 6 1/2 weeks post knee replacement and for over 4 weeks didn’t journal Opened my Bible once but could not really read through that time but I felt his presence. He was so near. Thank you for this. With anticipation
Thank you for sharing that Carol. I’ve also found journaling really helpful for focused listening, and had times when the cover has stayed closed. I’m really glad you felt his presence, and I hope you’re also starting to feel more comfortable with your new knee.
Beautiful to read! Yes, this blog is a good reminder for me: He listen to my voice. Even when I am a little bit sad.
Thank you Jedidja. Yes, no matter how we’re feeling he’s with us, listening. Blessings, Ann
