Time for YES

It was time for a YES!

The moment was scary and exciting, both at the same time.

It was a YES moment. A moment of forward movement. A moment of commitment. A moment of faith.

It was time for another YES.

This one was different than the last YES.

(Don't miss that...there will be more than one YES!)

The last YES was to accept the position. (To which I almost said NO 😥)

This YES was to sign a lease.

But it was so much more than that.....
This YES was to commit to the position for a full year.
This YES was to commit to live a part from my family for a year.
This YES was to commit to wholeheartedly follow the One who orders my steps.

Saying YES is not always easy, but is often necessary.

To say YES, you may be required to say NO.
To say YES, you may hurt someone's feelings.
To say YES, you may have to step out on faith.
To say YES, you may experience some growing pains.
To say YES, you may be forced outside your comfort zone.

Like the songwriter says, "Your YES might just cost you everything."

Be willing!

Be brave!

Be open!

Abraham was a great example of what can happen when you say YES. Genesis 22:13 shows us the benefits of YES, "Do not lay a hand on the boy." [the angel of the Lord] said. "Do not do anything to him. Now I know that you fear God, because you have not withheld from me your son, your only son.""

Abraham was about to give up the very thing that meant the world to him. His YES was not easy but yet, he still said YES.

I was holding my YES hostage. Until I was ever so gently reminded that it was time to release it.

When I finally said YES to Him, He said YES to me.

It is time for you, too, to say YES!

What YES have you been holding on to? What YES have you tried to change to NO? What YES have you silenced?

A Small Tear

I could barely see. 
My eyes felt itchy and irritated. 
I thought I was tired from a full day of work. Sitting at a computer. Taking meetings with clients. Staff meetings. All the work of a typical Friday. But the day was not over. I still had an hour left in my two and a half hour drive down the two-lane, tree surrounded road to Tallahassee. 
I was rubbing my eyes and blinking so much to stop the itch. Nothing was working. Nothing was soothing me. 
I drove in discomfort as long as I could......then I reached my breaking point. 
When I arrived at a stopping point in my travels, I removed my contact lenses. Before I replaced the contacts with glasses, I took a look at the lenses. 
If only I would have recognized the signs sooner....
The left lens had a tear. 
Side note: The thing I have yet to grasp is how a contact lens that is inside the eye gets a tear without even being touched. If you can explain how this happens, feel free to drop the knowledge in the comment section.
In any eve…
