The Voice of the Genuine
by Makala Crawford
During our time together at STREAM, we met almost every day in covenant groups, or groups with designated people. We would talk about certain topics that related to the theme of the day. One of those topics was the Voice of the Genuine. That was one of my favorite topics.
The voice of the genuine is inside of us. The genuine can be a number of things, including dreams that keep us going, our calling in life, gifts given to us by God, God, or all of the above. There is no right or wrong answer to what exactly is the sound of the genuine in your life. However, it is there for a reason. So many times, we are caught up with day-to-day life, stressors, responsibilities, or all, that we forget that the voice of the genuine is even inside of us. I learned that is important to sometimes stop and listen to that sound that resonates in your soul. For doing so may just bring you a plight of happiness, and answers that you may have been searching for.
