Wednesday Selah: Song of My Father by Urban Rescue

We’ve all heard the voices. Those voices in our head that sometimes whisper and sometimes scream that we don’t measure up.

  • “I need to do it all.”
  • “My life doesn’t have a purpose.”
  • “I don’t belong.”
  • “I don’t have much to offer.”
  • “I’m not smart enough.”

But, to each of these lies, God speaks the truth. Holley Gerth explores these truths in her new devotional, Do You Know You Are Already Amazing? Holley pairs the lie with a passage from Scripture that reflects God’s truth as it was revealed in the life of one woman.

  • “I only need to give Jesus my all.”
  • “I’m here for such a time as this.”
  • “God has a place for me.”
  • “God can use whatever I have to give.”
  • “God makes me wise.”

Each day’s reading ends with questions to help the reader explore the lies that shape their own life. Honest reflection ultimately tunes us in to the voice of God rather than the voices in our heads, and Holley does a superb job of gently guiding the reader to hearing the Father’s voice.

The message of hearing God’s voice of truth over the noisy lies of the world reminded me of a song from one of my new favorite bands, Urban Rescue. The chorus is not only a declaration of where I am in my life, but it’s also a prayer that I will always remember that I am loved no matter what my circumstances or what lies I am hearing.

In the middle of the night
I look up to the sky
I can hear You singing over me
Through the fire and the flood I know that I am loved
I can hear You singing over me

I encourage you to listen to this song as you reflect on the truth Holley shared for whatever day you happen to stumble upon this post.

And know always that only God can show us who we really are.

Disclosure: Holley Gerth was gracious enough to provide me with a copy of her devotional in exchange for an honest review.
