"Never let the noise of the world around you, drown out God's word about you." -Ann Voskamp
We live in a noisy noisy world, don't we? A world that is constantly throwing lies our way.
"Your not skinny enough."
"You should have a house by now."
"You should have a baby by now."
"Why aren't you married?"
"So what if you're house poor, at least you will have a massive home to show off."
"You work in fitness? Your arms aren't very toned."
"Boundaries? Seriously? This is your full time job."
"You have a degree and your not using it? You are worthless."
Can anyone else relate? I am sure we can ALL relate with at least one of the statements above. The reality is this world is LOUD and it has a lot to say, but the only thing that truly matters is what God has to say about us in His word. We have got to start filling our hearts and minds with the TRUTH of His WORD, bolting up every morning for the battle ahead! Reminding ourselves that we are called to walk in obedience to God and His word.
We must also know that because we live in a fallen and sinful world 1) We will have moments that we fail, because our flesh is sinful. 2) We will have haters. We can not expect unbelievers to understand the way we live or make decisions! They don't know Jesus. 3) Even some believers may not understand decisions we make. At the end of the day we have to make decisions based on what God's will is for our lives.
I love this from Ann Voskamp on the subject, "To silence the other voices in your head all day, You need God’s Word in your heart at the beginning of your day. And His Word that holds you close & whispers: “I’ve never quit loving you and never will. Expect love, love & more love! I will strengthen you. I will take you by the hand & guide you. I’ll never let you down, never walk off & leave you. I am with you, ready to help. Live fearless — Who or what can get past Me to get to you?"
AMEN AMEN. Cling to that truth this week sister! God is on your side. He is for you.
