My voice is an instrument of the Lord. It sometimes rings loud, but regardless of its volume, it rings strong and it rings true.

I am a child of God, created by him for his pleasure, for his purpose and for his glory. I am not anyone’s victim.

Because of his grace, I am not too much, I am not not enough. I am just right and right on time. I will not be silenced.

Because of his love, I am so much more than a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal. I will use my voice…

  • to learn
  • to teach
  • to listen
  • to love.

Because of his gentleness, I am molded and shaped into the image of Christ,

  • laughing
  • playing
  • slowing
  • thanking.

Because of his divine humanity, I can echo his sentiments into a broken and fallen world:

  • weeping
  • praying
  • fasting
  • healing.

Because of his plan, I too may be misunderstood, mocked, pierced, rejected.

Because of his purpose, I cannot fail and I will not be ashamed.

Because of his promise, I will never be alone.

Because of his sacrifice, I stand in victory.

God takes great delight in me and rejoices over me with singing.

With my voice, I will praise and glorify the Lord for all of my days.

I am a wife to Greg; mom to Greg Jr., Zach and Kate; Soul Healing Hostess; writer; artist; lover of Jesus and seeker of the elusive wonders of simplicity, truth, balance and rest.
