HEARING THE WORD

O Lord, today the wax
was removed from my ears.
Now conversation is understandable.
Yesterday, even with hearing aids,
garbled messages came through.
Sometimes, Lord, you must wonder
why we don’t hear you.
It has nothing to do with our ears,
but rather with our hard hearts.
Open our ears and hearts
to your messages, Lord.
Give us guidance
that we may fulfill your will.

Luke 8:15
But as for that in the good soil, these are the ones who, when they hear the word, hold it fast in honest and good heart, and bear fruit with patient endurance.

Hymn: O Jesus, I Have Promised, verse 3
