It’s finally Friday!
Remember that song? It’s finally Friday (sing it George Jones!) Honestly, that song isn’t the best to put on a faith blog but if truth be told I sing the first line of this country song every Friday morning! I don’t like Friday for the same reasons George does but one of the things I LOVE about Friday is…
I went to the Twitter party last night for a while and YES, I did see the word prompt before signing off – but it didn’t make a bit of difference because as soon as Kate Motaung announced it – you know what I said?
In the year 2000 I read a book that taught me what YES LORD means! The book? Let the Children Pray by Esther Ilnisky. Mind you I know Pastor Esther as she and her husband pastored my son’s and family church in South Florida. Esther learned how to say YES LORD by launching a worldwide prayer movement among children. The subtitle on the book is, “How God’s young intercessors are changing the world.” Near retirement, Esther was looking forward to chaise lounging in the Florida sunshine when the Lord (literally) flooded her soul with this mission. And, reluctant to listen, she knew better and said, “YES, LORD!”
I must say this phrase at least 19 times a day, “Yes, Lord.” It has become foundational in my walk with Christ. I have a necklace that says simply, in block letters, YES LORD. I gave my two North Carolina besties, pins that say the same.
Do y’all remember the very first miracle Jesus performed as He began His earthly ministry? He turned water into fine wine at a wedding! Wowzers! Awesome story yet the most important thing we can learn from that miracle story? Is what His mom said…
“Whatever He tells you to do? JUST DO IT!” Just say YES to Him. (read it HERE)
Man! That sets my feet a-dancing and my heart rejoicing – just say YES, Lord.
I spent years and years and years saying NO to Him – the Savior of the world – what on earth was I thinking? Stubborn. Stiff-necked. Rebellious. Run-away. Fugitive. Back-slidden and good-riddance!!! I was a wreck. God knows I needed Him, but I kept saying NO.
Oh friends – hear me when I say – our awesome God loves you with an everlasting love and He is so worth saying…
