I wasn’t sure if I was going to participate in the jam this week, although when I saw the writing prompt for January 31 was “yes” – immediately in my spirit I heard, “Yes, Lord!” I am certain our Father loves to hear those two words. Yesterday at church we sang, “I’m trading my sorrows – I’m trading my pain…yes Lord yes Lord yes yes Lord.” It doesn’t take much to convince me that Holy Spirit is confirming a word to me…
The word “yes” easily rolls off the tongue; “no” requires the tongue to shift upward to the roof of one’s mouth and then presses against the front teeth, the lips must form a big O and then the word, “NO!” breaks forth. It’s easier to say yes, but, should we be yes people?
Could you ____?
Can you ____?
Will you ____?
Would you ____?
Each one of us can fill in the blank with those constant requests that eat away our “yeses to better things”!
When God leads us to do something, go somewhere, give something, then yes, we are wise to say yes.
Perhaps if we said “no” more often to the well-meaning requests made of us, we’d have more time and energy to say “yes” to the Lord.
O! for grace to say, “Yes LORD!” each and every time He instructs and leads.
Say yes over at Faith Barista!
