Quieting My Heart: Who Do We Listen to the Most?



Whose voice do you listen ⠀
to the most?⠀
The voices of those around you⠀
or the voice of the God⠀
who made you for His purposes,⠀
and also, for your best?⠀

Where do we get our ⠀
sense of worth, ⠀
our value?⠀
Where do we turn to⠀
when we are feeling⠀
unloved, and unworthy?⠀

"Our worth becomes tied ⠀
to what we do for others,⠀
but God announces a ⠀
stunning truth:⠀
Your worth is tied to⠀
what God does for you. ⠀
He loves you.⠀
God chooses you continually."⠀
(Bonnie Gray)

"May you experience⠀
the love of Christ,⠀
though it is too great⠀
to understand fully.⠀
Then you will be made complete⠀
with all the fullness of⠀
life and power⠀
that comes from God."⠀
(Ephesians 3:19)⠀

Thankful for reminders⠀
to run first of all⠀
to the One who⠀
loves us most.⠀
Today.⠀

  1. Love how you faithfully share your faith here Cherry! I find I have a daily battle with my "Martha heart", but the Spirit is helping me recognize the side effects of anxiety, stress, and fearfulness earlier and I know they are red flags designed by God to slow me down and get my thoughts focused on Him.Such a blessing to read your quiet heart thoughts. Love & prayers, in Jesus, Cynthia
