I have to admit there are days when I wonder how or why things turned out the way they did. I never imagined my life would be this way.
I thought life would go on and only get better. But disappointments come along. And life doesn't always go as I plan. Seasons come and seasons go. I remember hearing that voice in my head for as many years as I can remember.
But then I open up my journals and my Bible; the places where I pour out my heart to the Lord. As I read, I see His hand at work in my life. I see answers to prayers that I prayed years ago. The answers may not be what I envisioned. But I realize they are for my good and His glory.
So I choose to listen to the voice of truth. I may look around and see others living life in a different way. But I will trust the voice of truth. The chorus to Casting Crowns song "The Voice of Truth" plays over and over in my head as my doubt turns to praise and thankfulness.
But the voice of truth tells me a different story
And the voice of truth says "Do not be afraid!"
And the voice of truth says "This is for my glory"
Out of all the voices calling out to me
I will choose to listen and believe the voice of truth.
Blessings and love,
