not that we have been living in years of no’s, but my husband and i have made the conscious decision to say yes this year.
not in an overbooking, overwhelmed, feeling frantic kind of way though…
i say no no no to that!
saying yes to listening to God’s calling in our lives. saying yes to His love. saying yes to taking risks. saying yes to fulfilling some of the desires of our hearts that have been put on the backburner. saying yes to productivity and efficiency. saying yes to rest and rejuvination. saying yes to dreams, goals, aspirations. saying yes to each other. saying yes to loving keaton in the way he deserves to be loved.
in saying yes to these things, there is also the implied act of saying no. saying no to The Enemy’s cunning lies when he tells us we will fail, that we aren’t good enough, or that we don’t have enough to give. saying no to uselessness and time wasting. saying no to what the world says is what we should be striving towards. saying no to feeling stuck. saying no to the things that take us away from who we are and who God intends us to be.
yes, it’s a full plate. and yes, it’s a battle. never perfected. but opening our hearts to what lies ahead and what lies within us through the Spirit is something worth working towards. some of this is already in the works, and some of it is an absolutely mystery waiting to be uncovered this year.
i can’t wait to see where saying yes to these things takes me. takes him. takes us.
what are you saying yes to?
