Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde by: Robert Louis Stevenson.
Have I read this classic? No, I have not.
I am familiar with the tale from the Phineas and Ferb episode The Monster of Phineas-n-Ferbenstein. Where the villian Dr. Jekyll Doofenshmiritz drinks a potion to turn into a monster.
Also, the great Veggie Tales episode The Strange Case of Dr. Jiggle and Mr. Sly.
Mr. Butterbun and a disco dancing gourd keep things a little less scary. Seriously, look at that book cover. All I know is that I read Frankenstein in high school and experienced sheer terror from a book, and I don’t want to go there.
I have been struggling with competing voices in my head this past week:
You are a terrible writer.
One day at a time, you’re making progress and allowing God to use you.
There are thousands of things to read and do why would anyone stop here?
If you encourage one person you are making a difference.
Your daughter just called you the worst parent in the world, yeah take that.
Think about all the ways you cared for her today. God will help you navigate these waters.
How many cookies are you going eat? You have no self-control.
Take care of yourself, you’re worth it.
Look at that Mom, she is so put together. You’re wearing the same clothes as yesterday. The laundry is piled up. There is cereal all over the floor of your car. You are a messy mess of a person. You are the awkwardly awkwardest of human beings. You are a nervous person who likes to retreat…
When do we take that competing voice of discouragement and unrealistic expectations and crush it?
As I grow older, I feel it fade more and more. If it ever leaves me completely, I will not miss it one bit.
That’s the voice of the enemy in our minds. He wants us to be…
I have wasted way too much time with this voice in my head.
Discipline changes us. I’m working on disciplining myself to not listen to this competing voice.
let the voice of the enemy fade.
Allow your voice to cover over it completely.
Do you have voices in your head? (That kind of sounds creepy.) You know what I mean. How do you kick them out?
