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?

More Than Words

It's September and you know what that means....

Wait, you do know what that means, right?!

Just in case you did not guess it, school 🏫 is back in session.  

It is the time of year of growing, planning, reading, thinking, and so much more.

This is an especially challenging year for me. I, yes I - well at least figuratively speaking, will be graduating 🎓 from 8th grade and also 12th grade. Yes, lots of big accomplishments. I'm excited and nervous, all at the same time.

But I am also starting a feel a little overwhelmed. As I started this school year, I accepted a new responsibility. I agreed to read all of the books 📚 that are needed to fulfill the 8th grade Language Arts requirements. Yes, this was completely voluntarily. I am not quite sure what I was thinking, though I am pretty sure the words spit out of my mouth before my mind knew what was happening. I guess I figured that was the price of good parenting. What even is 'good parenting' anyway?

At any rate, I have start…
