It’s time for “Five Minute Friday” over on Katemotaung’s blog, “Heading Home”! Set the timer, write for five minutes, and post! Today’s word prompt: Yes.
And God said, “Yes”.
“Lord, I want a big family, lots of kids!”
And God said, “Yes.”
“Please, God, let all my kids be born healthy.”
He said, “Yes” again.
“I need a house for all these kids!”
“Help me rear them to love the Lord and make wise choices when they leave the nest.”
“Please let my grandson be born healthy, give a safe delivery.”
“Please, God, deliver my parents from their sudden and drastic health issues and restore them so we can have them around for many more years.”
Should I go on?
We focus on the “no” so many times, we fail to take a step back and assess all the “yeses” in our lives!
Sawyer (number one grandson) started out saying, “Yesh”. Then, it was “Yes”.
Now, it’s, “I know”.
I’m thinking his mother says, “Yeah, I know” a lot. (Actually, I KNOW she does.)
And it would seem that when I asked for all those things, God’s “yes” was really, “I know.”
He knew the desires of my heart, and He did not deny me those deep desires.
So in the pettiness of my everyday life, when I’m frustrated with all those little roadblocks and “no” answers –
I’m going to focus on God’s, “Yes, I know.”
It’s a freeing concept because ~
YES. I’m blessed.
“Oh Lord, how manifold are Your works!
In wisdom You have made them all.” ~Psalm 104:24a
