…the joyful sound

We gladly welcome your comments on our Forum and Bulletin Board but we do maintain the right to edit and/or take down anything we 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; make two short postings of the long posts or send the lengthy ones for publication in our Magazine or Newsletter. If you quote the Bible, please use The King James Version, as this is what Mrs. Eddy used. Thank you!

    RESPONSIVE READING: Psalm 89
    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!
