Do you ever feel that the desires of your heart are way beyond your reach, beyond your capacity to earn, beyond the set of skills you possess for the ordinary person you feel you are?
Yet, in the same moment, if you are like me, you feel a need to nourish the desires of your heart because you just might be extraordinary and a part of something big, grand, and even majestic.
WHO AM I? WHY DO I FIGHT AGAINST MYSELF?
The answer to both questions became clear to me when I discovered a latter-day war taking place between three voices battling in my mind.
These three voices are my voice, God’s voice, and Satan’s voice.
NOT EVERY VOICE IS A TRUSTED VOICE, and the real battle is not with myself but with the enemy, Satan, who bullies me in my own voice.
Satan attempts to muffle God’s voice in my life with negative emotions, like fear, that attack my worth, limit my agency, and always accuse me of not being enough.
On the other hand, God is constantly broadcasting messages to me. “Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by name, you are mine” (Isaiah 43:1)
God’s voice invites me to change and or repent. He never attacks my worth, my value, or my agency. He sees me for what I can become, and my brokenness does not alter His confidence in me.
HOW DO I HEAR HIS VOICE?
Before I understood the source of the voices in my head, I was living in anxious fear that resulted in constant personal attacks and attacks upon those I love. Understanding the source of these voices has changed my entire life and awakened a warrior in me.
My warrior journey is taking me through my fears. I no longer avoid the fear by going around it, trying to jump over it, or squeezing under it. I have found my warrior’s heart!
I face fear and just do it “Scared”. For me, it is no longer about the absence of fear but facing the fear, managing the fear, and hearkening to the voice that has chosen me to be a powerful warrior with Christ in the latter days.
I am building my defenses strong, aligning myself with the Savior, who will protect and deliver me and those I love from any attack.
I BELIEVE THAT, WITH THE RIGHT DISCERNMENT, YOU CAN INCREASE YOUR CAPACITY TO HEAR AND HEARKEN TO THE SAVIOR’S VOICE.
You too, can find your warrior’s heart.
