Here is the song that has been speaking to me lately, for "Then Sings My Soul Saturdays" hosted by signs, miracles and wonders.
I have a voice that whispers to me. Do you? It says things like "you're not good enough." No matter whether I am trying to be a good wife, or good mother, good writer or good child of God, it continues to whisper "why are you trying, you'll never be good enough."
When I eat dessert it says "you're going to get fat." When I miss my quiet time it says "Why would God love you?" When I don't exercise it screams "lazy!" This voice continues to tell me all the things I do wrong, and reminds me of my failures.
But there is another voice. The Voice of Truth. This is the voice that says**:
You were not a mistake, for all your days are written in my book. Psalm 139:15-16
You are fearfully and wonderfully made. Psalm 139:14
It is my desire to lavish my love on you. 1 John 3:1
I rejoice over you with singing. Zephaniah 3:17
I am also the Father who comforts you in all your troubles. 2 Corinthians 1:3-4
I am your Father, and I love you even as I love my son, Jesus. John 17:23
I gave up everything I loved that I might gain your love. Romans 8:31-32
The Voice of Truth is the one I will choose to listen and believe...The Voice of Truth.*
The messages from God came from "The Father's Love Letter. It too is inspiring, if you decide to click over and take a look.)
(*Voice of Truth is a song by Casting Crowns, shown below in the video. I love the message it tells, and it inspired this post.
John 8:44 -- He (the devil) was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies.
Deuteronomy 31:6 -- Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the LORD your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you.
John 14:6 -- Jesus answered, "I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me."
