twice have I heard this

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!

    RESPONSIVE READING: Psalm 62
    11. God hath spoken once; twice have I heard this; that power belongeth unto God.

    I have been praying about what this means, as we have had this in lessons a few times, and the following occurred to me today: When God speaks, it is done. Therefore He only needs to speak once, and that is the first time I hear it. After this, depending on my state of thought, I may need time to gain the understanding of what it means, before I can make it my own. Once it becomes my own, then it is in my thought, and being in my thought becomes the second time I have heard it.

    This has happened in working with my practitioner: She will state something that I don’t understand, and then sometime later it will come this eureka moment where I hear it once again, and finally understand how to apply it.

    I am so grateful for the patience of God and my practitioner, as I am sure even now there is much I have yet to hear that second time. Thank you!
