Listen and Live


Love will lead us…if we are open.

Isaiah 48:17

Thus says the Lord, your redeemer, the Holy One of Israel: I, the Lord, your God, teach you what is for your good, and lead you on the way you should go.


As it was a thousand years before the Prophet Isaiah was born, as it was when Isaiah wrote this 700 years before Jesus was born…as it is today:

God is our Redeemer.

God was, is and will be teaching and leading all people because God is our Loving Creator.

Love is what we came from and where we are going.

God is leading us to the fullness of who we are and to the fullness of Love.

We have a great guide in Jesus. He gave us the model for living our lives.

Jesus said that he was the way, the truth and the life (John 14:6). Numerous times he instructed those who listened to him to follow him.

We can still listen to him by reading the gospels.

We also can make time for contemplative prayer.

Set aside 15 to 20 minutes each day to sit in silence…allowing your thoughts to drift away.

Empty yourself…clear a space for God to fill.

Prepare to be taught what is for your good…and to be led on the way you should go.
