Voice of Truth

This song is haunting me!

Actually, this song holds a great meaning very dear to my heart...

I was driving home from the doctor's office when I knew I was having a miscarriage and "Voice of Truth" by Casting Crowns comes on the radio.

I wept.

I knew.

I felt like the world was crashing down. But,

"But the Voice of truth tells me a different story
the Voice of truth says "do not be afraid!"
and the Voice of truth says "this is for My glory"
Out of all the voices calling out to me
I will choose to listen and believe the Voice of truth"

Today I am aimlessly reading Facebook. And I see this...

Rest In Peace Charlie Goode.

Charlie was my friend from High School. Yes, that was several years ago now and we have not really kept in touch, but he was a very special person. Charlie was battling cancer. Charlie was the light in a dear friend's darkest hour. Charlie was an inspiration. Charlie was a good man, a strong spirit and a celebration of life.

Charlie will be dearly missed.

As I was reading the sweet words that his many friends posted onto Facebook can you guess what song comes up on my playlist...

"Voice of Truth" by Casting Crowns.

The Lord works in wonderful and mysterious ways. You see, music can stop me in my tracks, of course God knows this, he probably did it on purpose.

Somehow this song linked the loss of my unborn baby to my friend's death. I don't know exactly how or even exactly why. But this feeling is love and longing and understanding.

Is it coincidence that I just finished my scrapbook page of my miscarriage when this connection occurred? Nothing is coincidence. God is up to something...

There is a reason for everything. Charlie touched the hearts of many people, including my own. Now Jesus is holding out his hand to welcome him home.

"Voice of Truth" by Casting Crowns

Oh,what I would do to have
the kind of faith it takes 
To climb out of this boat I'm in 
Onto the crashing waves
To step out of my comfort zone
Into the realm of the unknown 
Where Jesus is, 
And he's holding out his hand

But the waves are calling out my name 

and they laugh at me
Reminding me of all the times 
I've tried before and failed
The waves they keep on telling me 
time and time again
"Boy, you'll never win, 
You you'll never win



But the Voice of truth tells me a different story
the Voice of truth says "do not be afraid!"
and the Voice of truth says "this is for My glory"
Out of all the voices calling out to me
I will choose to listen and believe the Voice of truth



Oh, what I would do 
to have the kind of strength it takes
To stand before a giant 
with just a sling and a stone
Surrounded by the sound 
of a thousand warriors 
shaking in their armor
Wishing they'd have had the strength to stand



But the giant's calling out 
my name and he laughs at me
Reminding me of all the times 
I've tried before and failed
The giant keeps on telling me 
time and time again
"Boy you'll never win, 
you'll never win."



But the voice of truth tells me a different story
the Voice of truth says "do not be afraid!"
and the Voice of truth says "this is for My glory"
Out of all the voices calling out to me
I will choose to listen and believe the Voice of truth



But the stone was just the right size
to put the giant on the ground
and the waves they don't seem so high
from on top of them looking down
I will soar with the wings of eagles
when I stop and listen to the sound of Jesus
singing over me



But the Voice of truth tells me a different story 
The Voice of truth says "do not be afraid!" 
And the Voice of truth says "this is for my glory" 
Out of all the voices calling out to me (calling out to me)
I will choose to listen and believe (I will choose to listen and believe)
I will choose to listen and believe the Voice of truth



I will listen and believe
I will listen and believe the Voice of truth
I will listen and believe 
'Cause Jesus you are the Voice of truth
And I will listen to you.. oh you are the Voice of truth
