The Five Minute Friday theme this week is the word
In five minutes this is what Yes spurred in my mind…
My son told me the other day I’m the best negative thinker he knew.
But I can be. So often my first response is “No”.
“Mom, can we….”
Unfortunately, it’s my automatic reaction to my Savior as well.
“Julie, that lady over there…”
So to hear the prompt Yes, means to me, challenges me to say Yes.
Say yes to my kids, or at least hear them out before I knee jerk the answer no.
Say yes to my husband when he needs a favor.
And most importantly, say yes to my Lord when He nudges me to do something. Even something I don’t want to, like talk to the lady at the gas pump. Ask her how her day is. Say Yes to get to know people instead of just brushing by them in my haste to make it home and do the daily chores that are always there and pressing.
Yes, I want to say yes.
What about you? What would it look like for you to say yes, or explore the possibilities of instead of just saying no, I don’t have time. No, I don’t have the money. No I can’t possibly – what would that look like?
Here’s to Yes!
