Finding my own voice

In my own experience I have tried, and failed, to style my own preaching after those certain men of God whom I respect and follow. It has taken me a few years to get past that and to trust the Holy Spirit to work through me. This has required some honesty and humility on my part as I realize it's not about making my name known, but Christ's name. God has some interesting things to say to the people in my world. I am beginning to identify with the prophets, as God spoke through them. He used their voice, but it was His thoughts and words they were conveying. When I humbly recognize this simple fact, it makes all the difference in the world. When I listen to His voice, I find my own.
