Sunday Meditation: Are You Listening to the Lord?
Father mentioned during the homily that often people say to him that they feel like the Lord isn't listening to them. But "that's not how it works," he said. "We're supposed to listen to Him!" So if you aren't hearing the Lord maybe it's because you're speaking instead of listening. Remember the scripture that says, "Be still and know that I am God." If you are still like Elijah and listening for God's proclamation like the psalmist and keeping your eyes on the Lord instead of the storm like Peter, who knows what you can accomplish? -- even walking on water. Be assured that, even if you falter as Peter did, the Lord will be there stretching out His hand to rescue you.
Praised be to God! Have a blessed Sunday!
