|Say no or your bag gets heavy|
Not long ago, my daughter exploded (no, not literally, that would be gross). Some little thing unleashed the A-bomb in her--maybe the need to pick up bread for lunch? She does everything, especially when it comes to her kids. Sometimes everything becomes a bit too much.
I wonder where she learned it?
I've apologized to Sarah many times for teaching her the inability to say no.
Say no. When you do, you'll discover:
- God's burden is easy and light. How I used to hate that scripture. My life used to be frazzled with activities--most out of my realm of giftings.
- It's easy and fun to volunteer for those few sacrificial things we all need to do--like picking up roadside trash.
- We'll have time to use the gifts God's given us. I resigned from choir because I can't sing. Now I have time to get home and write.
- Another Hiroshima won't be unleashed. It's never fun being around a balloon that bursts--let alone the atomic bomb.
God always answers prayer. We've heard this adage, too. Sometimes yes, sometimes wait, and sometimes God says no.
If God can say no, why can't you?
What holds you back?
