Psalm 29:3-9 The voice of the Lord is over the waters; the God of glory thunders, the Lord thunders over the mighty waters. The voice of the Lord is powerful; the voice of the Lord is majestic. The voice of the Lord breaks the cedars; the Lord breaks in pieces the cedars of Lebanon. He makes Lebanon skip like a calf, Sirion like a young wild ox. The voice of the Lord strikes with flashes of lightening. The voice of the Lord shakes the desert; the Lord shakes the Desert of Kadesh. The voice of the Lord twists the oaks and strips the forest bare. And in his temple all cry, “Glory!”
Last week I spoke about the importance of sharing your faith story with your family and friends at a retreat in Minnesota. As the day approached, I was becoming more and more anxious to speak in a room full of women. So, I enlisted my faith sisters to pray over my insecurities to let God’s voice be heard. God is good. Through the prayers, He taught me that my faith is bigger than my fears. I was able to make it through my presentation without looking at my notes too often. Later in the day, I had a lady tell me that she battled breast cancer ten years ago. She began writing letters to her two boys, but just couldn’t finish them. She was going to leave the retreat and complete the letters to her sons that evening. Another lady was contemplating starting a blog. She told me that as she listened she could feel God pushing her towards launching that blog. God is good! He used my simple words to reach these women.
With all the noise in the world, make your words count. How will you allow the voice of God to be heard through the words speak?
