On Fridays, I join The Gypsy Mama for 5 minute Fridays, that is when I am not too chicken to participate.  🙂 

The rules:

1. Write for 5 minutes flat – no editing, no over thinking, no backtracking
2. Link back here and invite others to join in.
3. Meet & encourage someone who linked up before you.

Today’s word is:   LOUD


I SOOOO look forward to Friday mornings!  I am off work and I get to participate in 5 minute Friday.  Upon seeing today’s word prompt, my first thought was…”Oh, yeah! This one will be easy.”

Well, it’s not!

The noise that fills my head can get so loud that it deafens me.

The voice that says, “you’re not good enough.”  Yells loud and long.

The voice that says, “you’re too fat.”  Yells even louder.

That voice that tells me, “no one REALLY likes you.”  That voice visits too.

Ok, so I am not good enough.  He doesn’t ask me to be good enough.  Just to love Him.

Ok, so I am not skinny.  I don’t have to be.  I am fearfully and wonderfully made. He said so.  He made me.

Ok, so no one REALLY likes me.  That’s OK. Because He loves me.  He sent his son to die for me.

And you know what…I don’t have to listen to that LOUD, OVERBEARING VOICE in my head!  

I am already amazing…I read Holley’s book.  She has some great truths in it and I believe them.

So loud voice…you can now be QUIET!  I am NOT LISTENING to you ANYMORE!

Have a good weekend…
