Don’t examine whether your voice is worthy. Give it freedom out of your heart and you’ll be true to who God’s made you.
I love my digital camera.
It has revolutionized my life.
I am no longer limited to 12, 24, or 36 exposure rolls.
I can capture the moment with as many rapid fire clicks as I want — while laughing, gulping back tears, or half-falling off my bike pedaling.
I don’t have to worry. I’m sure to find one or two good pictures out of the gazillion shot.
The best ones are the unplanned moments.
Candid. Surprising. Real.
Because of faith, finding my voice has taken me on the same journey.
This journey is called freedom.
This journey is all about faith.
Keeping Me Silent
The hardest part of writing is sitting down, to just start writing. Whenever I do, competing voices often love to keep me silent.

God knows me! That’s what I sensed today when reading your post. Just last night with tears streaming down my face, I was at a low about how God uses my voice and just how exposing it feels to me. Your post is like God saying to me….”keep writing, yes it’s exposing, and it has to be. See I want people to be drawn unto Me, not you. So when you write or use your voice to speak to others about Me, they may see you at first but shortly they see Me. Just what I want. So just go. Let your soul keep following Me. It knows where I want you to go. Trust Me. You really are safe. Come on, my daughter.”
So thank you Faith for being willing to share your voice so I can continue to find mine. Good chatting with you.
