Finding and Speaking Voices of Truth

Affirmations

Have you ever been going through life and suddenly you feel as though God is trying to get your attention?  Well, that is how I have felt for the last week or so.  Everywhere I look, from a course, I am doing, to books I am reading, to blog posts and more, I am constantly being bombarded with the idea of positive affirmations.  Specifically, I am seeing the need to speak them out loud.  So I guess God is trying to get my attention.

In my case, I am supposed to be writing out and then speaking out positive statements regarding changes I want to make in my life.  I have started writing them down.  Writing words comes fairly easy, but speaking those some words is more of a challenge.

We need to be able to speak words, whether orally or written that God will bring to fruition.  So I guess I know what I am going to be doing this week.  I am going to be writing down my affirmations and then recording myself speaking them out loud.

Now I need to make something clear, I do not like listening to myself on a recording.  I do not mind recording other people, but I do not want to record myself.  But I guess this is God’s way of encouraging me to be willing to follow the words of the song, “Voice of Truth” from the movie Facing the Giants.:

To step out of my comfort zone
Into the realm of the unknown where Jesus is
And He’s holding out His hand

I think this particular song is one of my favorites from the movie Facing the Giants.  So I need to step out in faith and believe that God will be there for me.  I need to face and slay my fear of listening to myself speak.  I need to have faith and confidence in what God wants for me.

I am participating in Mom Boot Camp 2.0 with Hannah Keely, and does she ever have a way of taking away all the layers and getting to the heart of things, even when it is hard.  So I am going to speak my affirmations.  I am going to believe that God loves me with an everlasting love and wants to provide an abundance for me.  So I am stepping out in faith and believing in the power of the spoken word.  I believe that nothing is impossible for God!

So do you need a “voice of truth” or maybe to face some giants?  Maybe you already speak or write affirmations out for yourself, or maybe you need some encouragement to do so. I would love to hear back from you about whether you are speaking or writing out your affirmations.
