Taking God Off Of Mute

Here is an excerpt from my latest article published on blogsbychristianwomen.com.

Sometimes it seems hard to discern God's will for our lives.

Sometimes it seems hard because of the noise from all of the things outside of us that compete for our attention.

This noise can come from a society where our sense of self and purpose is somehow based on the material possessions we have or on what people think about us or the number of likes we receive on social media.

Sometimes the noise comes from those who are closest to us, our family and friends. The voices of people who love and care deeply for us, who think they know what is in our best interest. But sometimes their idea of what is best is not our idea and perhaps not even God's.

Then there is the noise from our own negative, internal chatter. The not-so-kind words we say to ourselves, the limiting beliefs we hold about who we are, or how we convince ourselves that it is better to hold onto fear than it is to hold onto faith.
