The Voice of Truth

I don't normally go for popular christian music but my daughter, Logan, has a song on a cd that she listens to over and over and over (the autism factor) while traveling in the car to and from school. One beautiful autumn day, amidst the fall foliage of the southwest Virginia mountains, we were driving along and the lyrics to this song spoke volumes to me. I'd obviously heard it many times before but my spirit was not yet to the place it needed to be for the message to get through to me.

The lyrics touched me on so many levels. There are many gospel lessons to be learned therein. I especially love the references to the waves and to the story of "the giant". Those waves and that "giant" are things we confront daily as we struggle to conquer our own Goliaths. Satan wreaks havoc with us as he tries to persuade us that we'll never win. But, the voice of truth tells me a different story. The voice of truth says do not be afraid.

  1. This is one of my favorite songs. I think as LDS we too easily overlook the inspiration that can come through the Christian music station on our radio dial. Your recipes look amazing, I think I could spend a lot of time on this blog! :)
