Power of Voice

Friend, have you thought about the power of your voice?

We thought about that this week because our little guy Jackson who’s three was kind of pondering and he came out with the statement, “When I was a baby, I wanted to have a voice like mine!”

It took us a little while to figure out what he meant by that, didn’t it?

As he began to talk, we figured out that he was saying, “Now that I can talk, I make friends and I feel close to people.” And I understood what he meant.

It is so powerful, we take it for granted. But that’s exactly what we have as a gift in our own marriages—our voices to pull us together.

That’s right. Sometimes people define marriage as one long conversation, and I know why they do that.

Friend, don’t take your voice for granted. It’s the lifeblood of your relationship.
