A heard voice is the sound that matters to the one who is willing to listen. Having someone that feels your voice is worth listening to. To hear a person, their voice must be valuable to listen to. The value of a person is a main consideration of a heard voice. I want to know that I matter, that my voice brings admiration and security to your needs. I want to know that my voice does not agitate, or bring up insecurities that will cause you to reject each word spoken. I want to be able to speak and it is not taken the wrong way or filtered through a negative mindset. I want my voice to bring you joy and heard as a collaborator in your life instead of something that needs to be defended.
I want a voice that can be comfortable speaking without having to walk on eggshells regretting even having a say. I want a voice that is free to have an opinion but not heard as trying to take control. A voice that turns on the creative light in your mind; a voice that is iron sharpened to connect with the dormant ideas that are forgotten. A voice of love that soothes the beast that rises through the frustrations of life. A voice that brings on a smile and drives away tension. A voice that you are proud of, one that is respected and suggested.
A voice that's not ignored or taken for granted or have to be minimized to make you great. But a voice that speaks of the greatness that lies in us both.
How does your voice sound to the ones you love?
Do you ever feel like you are not being heard?
Do you struggle with saying the right things? Are you always defending yourself?
Are you afraid to speak openly?
Prov. 31:26 - She speaks with wisdom, and faithful instruction is on her tongue.
Col. 4:6 - Let your conversation be always full of grace, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how to answer everyone.
