The voices in my head


Too much time on my hands right now, thinking, dwelling on things.  I do battle with those voices in my head sometimes.  You know the ones.  One will say things like, “Keep the faith!  You’re doing fine!  Don’t be discouraged! Don’t give up!”  And then there are the others that say, “You’re such a mess!  Look at yourself!  You’re weak!  You’re never gonna get anywhere and that’s YOUR FAULT!”  And then of course there are the ones that say, “I am tired.  Isn’t there just somewhere I can go into a corner and just quietly go to sleep?”

Most of us have been there before I think.  Maybe some of you never have, but most of us have.  I’m doing okay I think…looking to what’s real…the voice that I need to be listening to.  The One above, who I know beyond any doubt loves me.  It doesn’t matter to Him if all of you were to leave me alone, to turn and walk away and never want anything to do with me.  He’ll still love me, and I know that.  But I do still struggle between shoving away those other voices that like to argue that fact with me.

    Anne, it sounds as if you have had a difficult day today. Will pray for you. 🙂 Even though we know what The Voice of Truth tells us, sometimes we just need a human arm around our shoulders or to know that there is a person who cares. God bless and keep you friend as you work your way through whatever is happening in your life.
    Peace and blessings,
    Marilyn
