Every YES we utter contains no’s…
If I say YES to God…
to live a life of faith, hope, and charity…
I say no to to a life of doubt, despair, and selfishness.
Why is it the no’s seem to creep into my YES?
Why do the no’s try to whittle away the strength and the authority of my YES?
It is a fallen world. We are fallen people.
While in this world we must do battle against these persistent no’s.
Yet, His grace is sufficient.
Let us daily, even hourly if in the midst of a battle, renew our YES with trust and confidence in God’s love and mercy.
Let our YES drown out the no’s in the world and in our hearts.
Let not our no’s speak defeat…
Let our YES shout victory!
YES is more powerful than no.
“Do I make my plans according to human considerations, so that with me it is “yes, yes” and “no, no”? As God is faithful, our word to you is not “yes” and “no”. For the Son of God, Jesus Christ, who was proclaimed to you by us, Silvanus and Timothy and me, was not “yes” and “no” but “yes” has been in him. For however many are the promises of God, their YES is in him; therefore the Amen from us also goes through him to God for glory.” 2 Cor 17-20
As usual very good. It was something I needed right now also, so I thank you very much for posting. You are so right, how often we say “yes” and it ends up a “no.” God Bless, SR
