I don’t want to sound totally crazy, but… I hear voices.

Yes, it’s true and since I’m being honest, I’ll go ahead and confess that it seems like there are an awful lot of them going off all at once and more often than I care to keep count of.

And it not only makes me sound a-bit crazy, but it also makes me feel a-lot crazy. And I don’t like that much.

You know that mental picture of the devil and the angel whispering in a persons ear. It’s a little like that. But worse… because that flesh-girl is in there too and sometimes I’m not sure who’s side she’s on.

They’re all in there in a brutal match of coercion. Trying desperately to get me to do, feel or believe something.

Something good? Something bad? Something right? Something wrong? Something that feels good, but is bad? Something that feels bad, but is good? Have Faith? Give in to fear? Trust? Resist? Believe a lot of ugly lies? Believe what is True?

And all the voices swirling around in there have an opportunity to posses me. To enchant me and steal me away from one another.


I’m grounded.

In Truth.

Sometimes I’m without my battle gear. Sometimes in my weakness the flesh-girl loses Faith and joins the other side. If only for a moment.

Yet, it takes only a  moment to doubt.

And only just a moment to believe!

Crazy. I know.

But, maybe, just maybe you relate?

And it’s little reminders like the one posted up there that keeps all the unnecessary and wicked voices quiet. Where I can peacefully dwell on what HE says and nothing else.

I need that in the busy that is my crazy life.

You know what mental picture I prefer over the angel and the devil whispering in my ears? The one where God’s angels are raging in battle with the devils minions over me.

Yes, I like that much better, because it plucks me right out of the picture. The one that has nothing to do with it… getting out of the way of the One that has Everything to do with it.

Oh, and, I read-ahead… I know who the Victor is. And, I don’t want to brag, but… He’s a close personal friend.

May YOU be ever so blessed with the Voice of Truth today!

My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me; and I give eternal life to them, and they will never perish; and no one will snatch them out of My hand.

John 10:27-28

I totally relate! But I like when you said, that it only matters what He says and nothing else! So true!! Sometimes it is easier to succumb to the powers that tell us different. The flesh and the Spirit are constantly at battle… and we have to fight for truth, almost everyday!
