Listening

A poem by Mary Baker Eddy reads, “I will listen for Thy voice, lest my footsteps stray…” The Psalmist says, “I will hear what God the Lord will speak: for he will speak peace unto his people.” (Ps. 85:8) When in the frame of mind to pay attention to spiritual intuition, we have moments of revelation when we hear and understand God’s plan for us. We have listened! A well-loved hymn succinctly describes “eager ears, expectant, joyful,” (Hymn 58) Blessings come from this active participation in listening and obeying. During April, the Reading Room asks us all to open our hearts to the concept of genuine listening to God’s message, and experience the peace and prosperity it brings.
