The Voices in my Head

When the world says ‘no way’ God’s Word says ‘yahweh’

**Before I begin today’s post I would like to apologize and thank you all for being patient with me. I finished my last exam over the weekend so no more exams or 15 page papers (for now), my work there is done and the joy here can finally resume! This semester – scratch that – this year has been very challenging. I’ve faced many hard times and it seemed I would never end this semester, but look at me now! Today I’d like to focus on our inner thoughts and how our thoughts will betray us, and how important it is to walk daily with God’s Word.

I am an over thinker. I ponder, muse, speculate and worry about many things. I  consider the words I say, the words I didn’t say, the things I do, and the things I should have done habitually. I recall sorrows, heartaches and past mistakes. And unfortunately I am not the only one. There are many of us out there who face this problem: the more we think, the more we despair.

However, the solution is easy – the Word. God’s Word reminds us of who we are, what we have inside, and silences all fear and doubt. God’s word has the power to change and transform us. Lies lose their power in the face of truth.

It’s time to take your thoughts captive. We mustn’t be influenced by the outside world and its impression on our thoughts. We don’t have to listen to ourselves, but we do have to talk back. We must speak the truth of God’s word to our hearts. We need to know God’s word by heart so that it is always on the tip of our tongue, ready to fire at the lies that we hold on to. When it comes to our overthinking, we need to rebuke and correct ourselves with the truths of what Jesus has done, what he is doing, and what he will do.

It’s not about how the world sees us, but how the Word sees us. Let the spirit of Jesus live within you so that you are reminded of His unending promise. May Heaven remain inside you.

P.S Thank you to those who walked with me during this school year. Those who proofread, who encouraged, who prayed, who stayed on the phone while I cried, and those who inspire me daily. Y’all are the real MVPs ❤

Lyrics:
Spirit of Jesus
Living within us
Never to fail or forsake
Unending promise
Heaven inside us
Whispers the sound of Your name

Holy
Holy is the Lord
Worthy to be praised
YAHWEH

Filled with Your wonder
Here I surrender
Held in Your mystery of grace
Calling me closer
Waking desire
Coming alive in Your name

Holy
Holy is the Lord
Worthy to be praised
YAHWEH
Fire rising in my soul
All consuming flame
YAHWEH

He who was and is to come
Is the One who lives in us
The great I am
YAHWEH
[x5]

Holy
Holy is the Lord
Worthy to be praised
YAHWEH
Fire rising in my soul
All consuming flame
YAHWEH
[x2]
