Hear: Grace in the Wilderness: Prayers and Poetry

Jeremiah 31: 10, “Hear the word of the Lord, O nations, And declare in the coastlands afar off, And say, ‘He who scattered Israel will gather him, And keep him as a shepherd keeps his flock.’”

Hear the word. Are we listening? Do we recognize when we drift away and have become scattered in our hearts and beliefs?

The word is not silent or hidden but ready and open to all who will hear. And yet barriers can keep us from hearing or accepting when we are struggling in isolation. Or allow a spirit of boredom and complacency to sabotage our relationship instead of entering into a difficult conversation.

He already knows where we are in heart, soul, and thoughts. He waits. He calls. He gathers. He speaks to us voice to voice. He speaks to us through others. He speaks to us through creation, and art, and music, and labor. He will use any form of communication to enable us to hear His words.

The word is spoken everywhere and in every moment. Will we choose to listen?

Lord, please keep us faithful to Your words whether spoken, written, or in silent prayers, that Your Spirit will seed our lives and those who hear them with Your hope.

Your thoughts,
