…the joyful sound

The Bulletin Board is for gratitude for Christian Science and the Church, as well as timely excerpts from the Bible, the works of Mrs. Eddy, and the early workers that help and encourage. We are very grateful for all posts that conform to these guidelines, but will edit or remove anything that the Practitioners feel is not in complete accord with pure Christian Science or in any way disrespectful of it.

We also ask that you keep your postings as concise as possible. If you quote the Bible, please use The King James Version, as this is what Mrs. Eddy used. Thank you!

    15. Blessed is the people that know the joyful sound: they shall walk, O Lord, in the light of thy countenance.

    This reminded me of John 10: 4 “…the sheep follow him: for they know his voice.” Certainly that must be the joyful sound!

    I spent many years not walking in His light (or so I thought), either thinking I was beneath His notice or that He just wasn’t there. During those years, it was more like, “Cursed is man that knows the miserable sound.” All those sighs of uselessness, groans of frustration, yells of anger, and cries of anguish were the tones of mortal mind, which I foolishly voiced because I didn’t know better.

    I thank God for bringing me here, and for Christian Science teaching me how to hear His voice. That joyful sound evokes in me a constant stream of “Thank you, Father!” for showing me how to be useful; the “Ah!” of new understanding; the quiet peace of Love; and, the cries of gratitude for restoring “…the years that the locust hath eaten.” (Joel 2:25)

    What a practical Science this is! As the difference between the joyful sound and the miserable one becomes more discernible, misery seems less a choice and more what it is: Error! Such a blessing to be learning this. Thank you!
