I was at my local library recently and happened upon a display promoting newly acquired titles. For a moment I was overwhelmed by all those voices...I caught myself thinking, there is already so much content out there. Why does the world need my voice? What could I possibly have to say that hasn't already been said? How can I possibly cut through the noise?
Almost immediately after thinking this, I heard the Lord speak to my heart and say, but no one has your voice.
It stopped me in my tracks. And it totally shifted my perspective.
The God of the universe and everything in it, who knew me before I was even born, saw fit to not only breathe life into me, but to endow me with a completely unique perspective, set of opinions, intellect, and creative spark. And I have a chance to share this with the world every day in everything I say and create. AND YOU DO, TOO!
Our voices matter, friends.
