This week I’ve been struggling to hear His voice. The other voices inside my head are so loud and appear to be all too comfortable. I turn my head to listen to the loud voices, the untruths, those statements about me that make me cringe and want to fall back, to retreat, to give up. It’s taken every ounce of strength to remind myself to lean into His whispers.

But am I leaning in to hear?
This week, I heard “you’re not good enough”.
But His whispers of truth remind me that I am good enough, because I have Him. He lives in me and He is good enough.
This week I heard, “you’re not qualified”.
But His whispers of truth remind me that when I take a step towards Him, into the scary unknown, He will equip me.
This week I heard, “you’re too fat”.
But His whispers of truth remind me that I am beautiful. He looks beyond my outward appearance and sees the real me. And He loves the real me.
This week I heard, “You’re alone”.
But His whispers of truth remind me that although life may feel lonely at times, even when surrounded by people, He is always here, closer than my breath, and He will never leave me.
This week I heard, “It’s too late”.
But His whispers of truth remind me that God’s timing is perfect. I don’t have to give in to the lie that because I’ve lived half my life, that my life is over. With God, each day’s journey is a new beginning.
How are His whispers of truth speaking to you? Will you lean in close so that you can hear Him loud and clear?
