Saying "yes."


I have found in my life that there have been moments if I would have backed down in fear I would have never gotten to a certain place and learned what I needed to learn. The chances I took were the times I learned and grew the most. It’s so easy to say no. It takes the pressure off and brings sort of an ease of mind. If I would have continued on that track I would have never known what was on the other side of “yes.” It may have been a job, or maybe even someone asking to get together. That simple “yes” is where I grew as a person. I learned more skills, and more about people that weren’t like me. There were times were opportunities would come that felt unfamiliar. In those times I would think this feels way to weird to me. Or this is not comfortable, but i started to say “yes.” It was in those places that I trusted God and found such valuable lessons on the other side of my “yes.”

I want to encourage someone to begin. Begin to say YES. Begin doing the things that you want to do even if it may feel uncomfortable. Your yes has promises on the other side. Your yes may change someone’s life. Or maybe your yes is starting a business that could help you out financially.

When he had gone indoors, the blind men came to him, and he asked them, "Do you believe that I am able to do this?" "Yes, Lord," they replied. Then he touched their eyes and said, "According to your faith let it be done to you"; - Matthew 9:29

I love this scripture. It took a simple “yes” for the blind man to gain his sight again. He believed something was on the other side of his yes. I have had to change the way I think about saying “yes.” It shouldn’t be a hard thing to do. It should actually be more exhilarating and fun to not know what is ahead and to see what is on the other side of your “yes.”

So go for it! Begin to say YES!
