7.31.2020 – A Unified “Voice”

I’m realizing that right now, is a time that we —”the church” —are meant to be God’s “answer” and His “voice” of truth and hope to the earth. 💝☀️

But what happens when the church doesn’t have a purified, “unified voice?”

Can the voice of the Lord be clearly heard through the church, to the earth? If it’s distorted?

Do you know those voice distortion things? I had one as a kid and it was fun because we could talk into it, and no one would know who was speaking into it because of the distortion it created.

huh…. 🧐

Can the world hear His voice and His heart, through us? Or has the disunity created too much “distortion”?

What happens if the church is too busy being at war with itself, if we are too busy warring with each other, and with ourselves?

What if God has to find another way to “shake up the earth” to get its attention?

Perhaps that’s what He’s having to do… and if so, it’s because of His love.

But perhaps He needs us to wake up and realize what our part in this… truly is. 🥀🌹🙏✨

“Your love for one another will prove to the world that you are my disciples.“ —John 13:35

“I am in them and you are in me. May they experience such perfect unity that the world will know that you sent me and that you love them as much as you love me.”—John 17:23

I came across this beautiful song the other day, and I’d like to share it with you…

“One Voice”

by the Wailin’ Jennys

“This is the sound of one voice

One spirit, one voice

The sound of one who makes a choice

This is the sound of one voice

This is the sound of one voice

This is the sound of voices two

The sound of me singing with you

Helping each other to make it through

This is the sound of voices two

This is the sound of voices two

This is the sound of voices three

Singing together in harmony

Surrendering to the mystery

This is the sound of voices three

This is the sound of voices three

This is the sound of all of us

Singing with love and the will to trust

Leave the rest behind, it’ll turn to dust

This is the sound of all of us

This is the sound of all of us

This is the sound of one voice

One people, one voice

A song for every one of us

This is the sound of one voice

This is the sound of one voice”

Father, where there’s disunity in our midst, within Your people, within us, I ask and pray that You’ll bring the kind of unity that only You can bring. Help us to see and know when we need to be ready to surrender for the sake of unity so that Your voice, Your heart—can clearly be heard and felt in the earth. Thank You, Lord. In Jesus name I pray, Amen.
