Everyday they surround me, following me through my day, though I may not consciously be aware of them. Voices. Some are actual words spoken by those I come into contact with. Others are whispered to my thoughts. Many times the voices speak words that crush my spirit and wound my soul… “failure”…”worthless”…”give up”…”God has forsaken you”… The voices can overwhelm me and paralyze me with fear and hopelessness. But, there is another voice. I can choose to be hopelessly crushed by the other voices or I can listen to the voice of truth. The One who speaks rest and peace to my soul. The One who whispers to me my true worth. The One who gave His very life to save mine. It is a choice. What voice do I choose to listen to?
