This is for the people that have lost their voice in the struggle, in pain and in sin.
This is for the people who’ve silenced themselves because they feel like their voice doesn’t matter.
This is for the people who have struggled to find their worth and their true identity.
I’m sure you’ve all heard of the saying “The truth will set you free”. And I’m here to testify that the truth is what will set you free from anything.
Free (adj) ~
not or no longer confined or imprisoned.
I’m sure by now you’re familiar with my first published post on how I started the blog and the reasons why I started it. But as I sit here today I ask myself what does it mean to me and what would I love to achieve from sharing my life with others. At the end of it all, there was one final answer that stood out besides making an impact. It was to find my voice and in hope that you would find yours too.
I’ve mentioned that in the past, I struggled with articulating myself but I just discovered, after days of soul searching that I was really just afraid of the truth. It wasn’t until I started unpacking my truth, that I began the journey of healing and and breaking free.
When I talk about finding your voice, I’m really talking about finding your sound, your place on this earth, your worth, your identity and who you really are under all those layers. It’s the part of you that’s dying to come out and be free. It’s The version of you that God created. It’s also the part of you that wants to stand up for yourself . It’s the curiosity in you to find out who you are because of the moments you meet yourself for the first time in situations and you say to yourself “this isn’t me, I’m out of character, I was never like this.” or ” I don’t know who this person is, but it’s just not me. “
In order to find your voice, you have to know the source of your voice and who is that source? God is the source of our true voices. When I faced God for the first time. I learned the truth about who I really I am. The real me was hidden in Christ, as the Bible says : “For you died to this life, and your real life is hidden with Christ in God.” – Colossians 3:3. I believe that, the more you seek God, the more you find yourself. I would have never known my gifts, talents and capabilities. I would have never come to know that I had a voice, or what was on the other side of the truth.
Your story is beautiful. Even the most hurtful parts of your story are beautiful. They have the ability to bring light into the life of others . Don’t be ashamed of who you are. Own your truth and use that to find your voice. You never know who you could set free. Even you could be set free, from the guilt and shame that you carry. You can set yourself free from living a mediocre life. You can set yourself free to do things you never thought were possible. You could set yourself free from pain and the burden of carrying and hiding things that aren’t even a part of who you are.. In the midst of all this chaos that you call your life, take time out and just connect with the source of your voice. You are so worthy of all the things you talk yourself out of, of the things you know you deserve, of all the love, of happiness, you are so worthy to live your life and be who you are.
Remember, to know God is to know yourself. So I encourage you all to get closer to God so you can be free.
“You were running the race so well. Who has held you back from following the truth? It certainly isn’t God, for he is the one who called you to freedom.”
