Voice of Truth

After I wrote the previous post, I was in the kitchen listening to “Casting Crowns.” I just bought this CD a month ago and I haven’t had much chance to really listen to it. (It actually felt so indulgent to buy a new CD that didn’t have cartoon characters on it!) Anyway, the third song on the CD, “Voice of Truth” really hit home for me today. I think I listened to it twice before I caught the words:

Oh what I would do to have
The kind of faith it takes to to climb out of this boat I’m in
Onto the crashing waves
To step out of my comfort zone
Into the realm of the unknown where Jesus is
And He’s holding out His hand

But the waves are calling out my name and they laugh at me
Reminding me of all the times I’ve tried before and failed
They waves they keep on telling me
Time and time again, ” Girl (Boy), you’ll never win!”
“You’ll never win!”

But the voice of truth tells me a different story
The voice of truth says, “Do not be afraid!”
And the voice of truth says, “This is for my glory”
Out of all the voices calling out to me
I will choose to listen and believe the voice of truth

Oh what I would do to have
The kind of strength it takes to stand before a giant
With just a sling and a stone
Surrounded by a thousand warriors
Shaking in their armor
Wishing they’d have had the strength to stand

But the giant’s calling out my name and he laughs at me
Reminding me of all the times I’ve tried before and failed
The giant keeps on telling me
Time and time again, “Girl (Boy), you’ll never win!”
“You’ll never win!”

(Chorus)

But the stone was just the right size
To put the giant on the ground
And the waves they don’t seem so high
From on top of them looking down
I will soar with the wings of eagles
When I stop and listen to the sound of Jesus
Singing over me…

The third time I listened to it, I fell down to the ground, crying and worshipping the Lord for His complete faithfulness to me. As the song ended and I opened my eyes, I found two of my daughters, Ruthie and Olivia, on the floor, too, arms spread to heaven, smiling and praising the Lord. Thank your, Lord, for Your witness in our lives. Amen
