So many voices around us. Helpful, harmful, encouraging, discouraging, voices without and the voice within. We listen, we absorb and then we decide how it impacts us. We can use our voice for good or as a tool of destruction. We can also use our voice to speak for those who are hidden in silence.
There is our inner voice. The voice that tells us to go ahead, proceed with caution, or stop. Sometimes it’s good to listen to our inner voice and then there are times it is not. We do have the tendency to over analyze or talk ourselves out of something good. In the end it is our decision to listen or not.
Then there is the voice of God. Speaking from a spiritual standpoint, God speaks in so many different ways. He speaks through his word, He speaks through The Holy Spirit, He speaks through His son and in numerous other ways. Depending on what you believe, God speaks the truth. His voice is the supreme guidance for the spiritual life.
So many voice in the world. The outside world, the inner world and the spiritual. How we listen, perceive and react is our choice and ours alone.
