Hearing the voice of God

A woman was walking through the forest and saw a fox that had lost its legs, and she wondered how it lived. Then she saw a tiger come up with game in its mouth. The tiger ate its fill and left the rest of the meat for the fox.

The next day God fed the fox by means of the same tiger. The woman began to wonder at God's greatness and said to herself, "I too will rest in a corner with full trust in God that He will provide me with all that I need."

She did this for many days but nothing happened, and she was almost at death's door when she heard a voice say, "Dearest little one who is on the path of error, open your eyes to the truth. Stop imitating the wounded fox and follow the example of the tiger."
Psalm 34:8
Open your mouth and taste, open your eyes and see— how good God is. Blessed are you who run to him.
