my word against hers

As testimony fills my heart,
It dulls the pain of days.
For one brief moment, heaven’s view
Appears before my gaze.


I looked her in the eye and denied her accusation. Her ice blue stare shot back disgust, proof of her disbelief. I had no alibi, no way to convince her of my innocence. I had never felt so hurt and alone.

Since that moment I have been keenly aware of my lack of vocal persuasion. I’m not one that can suggest an idea and have everyone jump on board, in fact, it usually falls flat pretty fast. So when it comes to the things that matter most, the things that I know without a doubt, it is a relief to know that I am not alone; “No man can say that Jesus is the Lord, but by the Holy Ghost” (1Corrinthians 12:3), and that the Lord has a backup plan for our unconvincing words.
“When a man has the manifestation from the Holy Ghost, it leaves an indelible impression on his soul, one that is not easily erased. It is Spirit speaking to spirit, and it comes with convincing force….”
“Through the Holy Ghost the truth is woven into the very fibre and sinews of the body so that it cannot be forgotten” ~Joseph Fielding Smith Jr.

I will continue to fumble along, blurting when silence is called for and forgetting to speak until the conversation is passed; hopefully learning this skill of vocal communication, bu always knowing when truth is concerned, He's got my back.
