For as long as I can remember, I have been unusual. My mind and actions were so different from others. Since childhood, I could sense things around me. I knew when something was right or wrong and dangerous or safe. I could hear a voice say things such as “Do not do that. It is wrong.” When I would try to warn other children about something, I would get called a “chicken”. As I grew older, I started to ignore that voice. What happened? I would get into trouble. Then that same voice would ask me “Why did you do that when I told you not to?” Afterward, I would feel incredibly ashamed.
In adulthood, that special ability has never left me. I often wondered what was wrong with me that caused this to happen. Among my thoughts were insanity, demon possession, and paranoia. Sadly, the majority of people in my life agreed with those thoughts. It wasnt until I started reading my bible that I finally began to understand what had been going on all of these years. After spending most of my life feeling alone and cast to the side, I realized that someone had been with me all along. It was HIS voice that I heard. It was HIS guidance that kept me from falling into a life of drugs, alcohol, and other harmful behaviors. It was HIS love that stood by me when I rebelled and fell away. It was HIS strength that held me up during the years that I was abused. It was the voice of my Lord Jesus Christ 🙂
