Lohe (to hear with obedience)

The Hawaiian word “lohe” connects hearing and listening to obedience. If one does not obey, he has not really heard.

Truth and grace, totality

Do I listen, hear

Jesus speaks, waiting

Will I respond with trust

Or be discouraged

Jesus speaks, life words

Will I let them bear fruit now

Or miss the best for me

Father, you speak through your Word. Some of what you say is not easy for me to hear; that’s the way truth is. But, what you say is always seasoned with grace and love. Help me hear you, listen to your voice and then obey fully.
