“What’s wrong with me?” that voice in my head says again. Often, God’s gentle prodding replaces it. But, sometimes when the voice playing in my head like a broken recording, repeating over and over again, I get tired of hearing it. So often replayed, that I begin to believe there is something wrong with me. That’s when the downward spiral begins. I might not sense it at first, but the voice wants me to drown in self-doubt, depression, anxiety, fear and even guilt. This voice is not God or from Him. It doesn’t affirm as Abba Father would. I must send it away, turn it out into the street to look for another dwelling place. There is NOTHING wrong with me. I am redeemed by grace. Made in Father God’s image. A child of the King! I begin searching His word for instruction…peace…silencing the voice. God is there in His word. It is waiting for my attention. HE is waiting for my attention. How easily distracted I am by life – to the point of not paying attention to His word. His word: instruction manual, a light for my path, everything I need to survive!
Psalm 55:22 Cast your cares on the Lord and He will sustain you. He will never permit the righteous to be moved!
James 4:7 Therefore, submit to God; resist the devil and he will flee from you.
Romans 6:14 For sin shall not have dominion over you for you are NOT under the law, but under grace.
Psalm 119:105 Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path.
John 14:27 Peace I leave with you. My peace I give to you, not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled or afraid.
