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?
