Your voice is a divine gift


Your voice is one of the most sacred gifts you can offer.

Just ask Zechariah. For nine months he was unable to speak, at a time when he had so much to tell! (Luke 1:5-20) So once he could talk again. he praised God for all he had done and was going to do.

We can use our voices in similar ways this Christmas, to encourage others and to share God’s love.

      Well, not everyone has been given the gift of singing. But I have nothing to go on here but your word. 🙂 I don’t have a great voice myself, but I do love to sing anyway. Maybe it’s a bigger gift to others when I get quiet. ha.

    Loved the post you linked to, particularly the part about phone calls – that struck me for some reason. Around this holiday season, I know of many people who are going through a lot of hurt. And we have the chance to really bless them and encourage them with our voice – that voice over the phone.

      Oh, you hit me where I’m most vulnerable—the dreaded phone call. ha. I much prefer text or email or in-person than the phone. Not sure exactly why. But often the phone is the best choice to encourage someone so I need to get over my disdain for it. I know I’ve definitely benefited when others have called me when I needed it!

    I am thinking about Zachariah lately and may blog about him too. Interesting a friend of mine has cancer and one side effect of the chemo he takes he has now a raspy and almost nothing of a voice. this is difficult of course especially for one who has taught about Christ using his voice for years. BUT it is so neat to hear him think this through as a new gift – new ways to witness for Christ with a softer or no voice. Your post made me think of him today and admire him. Hope you are having a blessed Advent.

      I hope you will blog about Zechariah yourself, Jean. I’d love to hear your take.

      I’m sorry for what your friend is going through (sending up a prayer right now for his healing), but I love what you shared—that he’s thinking about this quieter season as a new gift. Wow. What a blessing.

      Yes, I am enjoying this Advent season; I hope you are as well. My husband and I have been working through short devotionals with Pieces of the Promise, and now that my baby is home for Christmas break, she’s joining us.
