How to Stop the Noise and Live a Joy Filled Life

Noise.  We hear so much of it on a daily basis we don’t hear it. Every day that goes by, year that passes the noise drowns us. You suffer from a loss of hearing. Where has our joy-filled life gone?

Does it really have to be like this? Do we really have to conform to letting all that noise fill us up until we are deaf?

We don’t.

Let’s reverse it. Let’s become deaf to the noise that kills our soul. That sucks away the part of who we are. The desire our God gave us. Are you ready to stop the noise and live a joy-filled life?

My Noise

Maybe your noise is similar to the noise I have been hearing in my life.

I have a Freezer Meal Plan that is about to be launched on MyBJsWholesale. Learning how to create printables and take pictures. Learning everything all over. It’s my first time. We all know how first times go. I start to hear the noise.

“Why are you doing this alone?”

“Too bad you don’t have any help”

“Who is going to like this anyways?”

“Why do you bother?”

“You won’t make money”

It continues.

I have this blog that is here to uplift, encourage, and inspire. I can feel the Lord and my desire to write to you burning through my fingertips.  I start to hear the noise.

“It won’t be a business”

“You won’t make money”

“You won’t help people”

“You think you know about farming”

“Aren’t you supposed to be cleaning?”

“You don’t know what you are doing”

It continues.

I have a three year old that just wants to be with her momma because she’s three and her big sister for the first time is gone 7 hours a day.  I start to hear the noise.

“You don’t have time for her.”

“She’s slowing you down.”

“You will never get those blogs going”

“Why did you have kids?”

“See you can’t handle all this, why are you a Mother?”

” Ladies, We were wired to always be thinking. But we were NOT wired to have the enemy charging our souls.”

The Strategic Attacks Thrown Against You

We need to continue to be plugged into the truth. The bible has exactly what we need to take away all the noise we hear day in and day out.

The enemy has one purpose in life and it’s to destroy yours. The good news is- The battle is already won. Jesus won the battle for us.

Yet the enemy knows we forget and uses fear against us. He has strategies friends. Here are some of the common ones as listed in Priscilla Shirer‘s Bible Study 

  • He strikes against your passion. Eph. 6:10-20
  • He strikes against your Focus 2 Cor. 11:14
  • He strikes against your Identity Eph. 1:17-19
  • He strikes against your Family Genesis 3:1-7
  • He strikes against your Confidence Revelation 12:10
  • He strikes against your Calling Josh. 14:8
  • He strikes against your Purity Isa.59:1-2
  • He strikes against your Rest and Contentment Deut. 5:15
  • He strikes against your Heart Heb. 12:15
  • He strikes against your Relationships 1 Tim. 2:8

Fight Back Against the Noise

Do you see that? We were made to enjoy our life. To live simply and beautifully.

Fight back against those strategies. Stop the noise and live a joy filled life when you can recognize those strategies are lies. Lies being thrown to you like a fiery arrow.

Take some time this week to recognize the noise that will kill your soul. Recognize the enemy at work and pray out loud reminding yourself the truth. The battle belongs to the Lord. He is faithful. You my friend have already won.

As a little girl,  I always found my peace and contentment out at the farm. Friends were staying after school to make out behind the building and I was begging to go to the farm every day after school.

It has always been my place of comfort. Nature has a way of doing that to you- finding your soul and filling you up. Restoring you for the battle that lies ahead.

jo filled life

Today take some time to just walk outside. Whether you are in a city or rural area. Walk outside with nothing but you. Leave your phone. Walk and look up to the trees, to the sky. And let your mind be still.

Be Still, and Know that I am God. Psalm 46:10

You got this girlfriend. Cut out the noise today.

What Noise do you need to quiet today?

Love this so much. There is a quote from Joyce Meyer that perfectly goes along with this post. She says, "Think about what you are thinking about" and I have found that to be SO helpful in fighting the lies the enemy throws at me!

I love Joyce Meyer! It is amazing how much noise in our minds is the enemy! But it is so powerful when we can recognize what is going on and stop it!
