The Voice of Truth

So, maybe I'm the only one....

But I have a constant battle in my mind.

The battlefield where I have an ongoing choice and my only true defense is the Truth of my God.

The Truth, that although often doesn't make logical sense, I know with all my being to be real...genuine...everlasting....undefeatable.

Throughout my journey with Rachel, I have had to take many thoughts captive into obedience to Christ.  It hasn't always been easy...  the thoughts like "You didn't deserve this" - "What good God would make his daughter suffer like this?" "God isn't paying attention, He doesn't see or care about how much this hurts" -  "What if the grave is all there is?"

Today I choose again to listen to the Voice of Truth and rely on Him to win the battle.  Today I choose again to surrender my wants for His perfect will.  Today I choose to believe that the same God who brought me unsurpassable peace as I watched my precious daughter die is here with me.  In every ounce of pain.  In every tear.  I choose to believe that He didn't stay in his grave - and she isn't in hers.


  1. You're not the only one....but.......praise God, He's alive as well as Rachel! <3

  2. What a thruthful post! May the peace of our Lord be with you while Rachel is dancing in heaven sheltered by God Himself...
    Love and hugs, anja

  3. That was so beautiful. I loved the song too. I'd never heard it before and it was exactly what I needed.

    Thank you.

  4. Someone recently shared this with me. Reject. Remove. Replace. Reject the thought, statement, (whatever) as a lie. Remove the lie from your thoughts, speech, etc. Replace it with Truth (and that is Truth with a capital "T"). It's not easy, but I've found it helps to have a plan of action when the lies begin to consume me. Thanks for your constant honesty. Helps me to know others think like I do.


We so appreciate your words of encouragement!
Thank you! ♥ The Aubes
