Listening and Speaking To Breath
Thursday, October 26, 2023
Like Smoke From the Fire,
Always Present, Always Needed,
The Holy Spirit’s Breath Voices the Word of Christ
Each and Every Day.
The Lord God has given me the tongue of a teacher, that I may know how to sustain the weary with a word. Morning by morning he wakens— wakens my ear to listen as those who are taught.
Acts of the Apostles 16:14
A certain woman named Lydia, a worshipper of God, was listening to us; she was from the city of Thyatira and a dealer in purple cloth. The Lord opened her heart to listen eagerly to what was said by Paul.
Words of Grace For Today
In desperate times and circumstances we hope,
we all hope,
for we can only hope,
that someone will have a word to sustain us through our weariness.
We hope that someone has listened to the Word of Jesus, well enough, to understand how to provide a word that sustains us.
when others are caught in desperate times and circumstances they hope,
they all hope,
for they can only hope,
that someone, like us, will have listened well enough to the Word of Jesus that we will have a word to sustain them through their weariness.
Do we have ears to hear, and hearts to listen, and minds like Christs to understand?
Today, like each day, the Word of Christ is all around us. Will we listen as the wind-breath of the Spirit speaks to us?
