Is it really Friday?!? Seriously, where did the week go? Where did October go for that matter? It’s been a crazy week, at least it feels like it. I had no intentions of blogging today, but when I realized it was indeed Friday and I could actually get a post out in 5 minutes, I figured, why not?! Here’s a quick, unscripted, Five Minute Friday post.

A Defining Voice

This week I stood in front of a group of moms talking to them about the highs and lows of parenting.
I recorded myself so I could go back and listen.
To my voice.

Later that day, I nervously hit play and listened to myself.
It’s awkward and weird, but it is after all what others hear from me every single day.

Our voice.
It’s what defines us.

With a word God spoke the universe into existence.
With his voice, Jesus healed the sick, raised the dead.

His voice.
It’s how we recognize Him.
It’s how we know Him.

What is His Voice saying to you?
What is your voice saying about you?

  • Hello, I’m over here to encourage you from Five Minute Friday. I had to chuckle to myself as I started reading your post – this week I have done the very same thing of listening to a recording of myself teaching – it really is a little awkward isn’t it, even though we hear it every day?!
    I love the way you linked your thoughts back to God and the way He brought the World into being with his voice! Astounding and humbling.
    After hearing myself talk as I was teaching, it made me feel like I needed a lot more time spent being quiet and still before God, bringing my words before Him before bringing them out into the open. I really enjoyed reading your post : )
    Happy Friday!

    I love this.


    I love how God brought the world into existance with his voice. And Jesus calmed the sea and healed people with only his voice. The voice is a very powerful thing-ours but even more powerful is God’s!
